If you are a rogue cop and you have several cases dismissed in your favor, better resign now quietly otherwise, you will go out in shame.
President-elect Rodrigo Duterte made the stern warning to the scalawags in uniform, particularly the three generals in Camp Crame allegedly protecting big time drug lords in the country.
At his victory party speech, President-elect Duterte told the crowd that he will ask for an automatic review of all the dismissed cases against policemen who are in service. Here’s why!
According to him, cops who are subjected to court cases, simply evaporate from public view, only to resurface once the witnesses are all dead and the complainant is disinterested in pursuing the case.
From here, the policeman will tell the judge that he would like to post bail or insist on a trial.
President-elect Duterte says that in the Philippine Constitution, there is a provision that says, “there must be a speedy trial otherwise, the case is dismissed with jeopardy.” This means, the defendant can be tried for the same offense.
The President-elect reveals that what happen when after three summons, the witnesses or complainant cannot be located under suspicious circumstances or by a miracle, the judge is forced to dismiss the case.
After getting a case dismissal from the court, the rogue cop returns to the service by spending 300,000 pesos or more via the Napolcom or in Camp Crame.
President-elect Duterte says another cycle of crucifying the Filipino citizens begins and that is something he cannot allow to continue.
According to him, if he finds out that the rogue cop returns to his old ways of selling drugs, he will have him killed. He told the scalawags in uniform to take him seriously, very seriously!
The crowd attending the victory party at the Crocodile Farm in Davao City applauded the pronouncement of the President-elect with gusto.
