ILOILO CITY, Oct. 16 –Five police officers presently assigned at the Pilar Municipal Police Station in Pilar, Capiz have been ordered dismissed from the roster of the Philippine National Police (PNP).

Sr. Supt. Domingo Cabillian, provincial director of the Capiz Police Provincial Office (CPPO), said the dismissal order was issued by the Ombudsman last February but it was received by his office only this month of October.

Thus, the CPPO immediately effected the dismissal of the said members of the PNP from the police service.

But according to Cabillian, the five policemen, led by SPO4 Moreto Vega, has filed a motion for reconsideration with the Office of the Ombudsman for their reinstatement to police service.

The dismissal of the five policemen stemmed from the death of an amok person following a police operation made by the team led by Vega, who was the deputy chief of police of the said municipality at that time.

Vega was reportedly injured during the police operation.

The identities of Vega’s fellow cops were not immediately made available by the CPPO.

Cabillian, for his part, believed that the five cops had just performed their mandated task as law enforcers.

The Capiz PNP provincial director said additional policemen will be assigned to the town’s PNP station to fill the vacuum left vacant by the dismissed police officers so as not to paralyze their peace-keeping operation in their area of responsibility. (PNA)
