PNP probes election-related incidents

MANILA -- The Directorate for Investigation and Detection Management (DIDM) of the Philippine National Police (PNP) is validating and verifying further all documented violent incidents since January to identify which among them are election-related incidents (ERIs), Chief Supt. Wilben Mayor, PNP spokesperson said on Wednesday.

These include two purported violent incidents in Albay and Masbate.

Mayor said that during the first 45 days of the election period, from Jan. 10 until Feb. 26, the PNP-DIDM has validated only one incident that will qualify as ERI.

According to DIDM, Police Regional Office 5 rectified its validation on the case involving Brgy. Chairman Jonathan Sullerra of Barangay Cabangcalan, Placer, Masbate from validated ERI to Non-ERI. Base on the investigation, the motive was personal grudge and nothing to do with political interest.

Meanwhile, a case of harassment that happened in Albay which involved an election officer, is still classified as ERI.

Mayor said that in two months, 34 incidents were recorded. PRO 18, PRO 10 and PRO 13 recorded 4 incidents each; PRO 4A, PRO 5, PRO 9 with 3 incidents each; PRO 2, PRO 3, PRO 7, PRO 11 and NCRPO with 2 incident each; and PRO 4B, PRO 6 and ARMM with 1 incident each. 15 were non-ERIs and 17 are still suspected ERIs.

The seven cases were referred to the Prosecutor’s Office while 27 are still under investigation.

Shooting recorded the highest with 25 incidents, three were stabbing/hacking incidents, two were explosions whereas strafing, grenade throwing while abduction and threat recorded one incident each.

There were 48 victims, of which 22 were identified as Elected Government Officials (EGOs), 10 were civilians, eight were supporters, three were candidates, two were former EGOs while EGO/Candidate, Former EGO/Candidate and AGO registered one each.

A total of 25 persons were killed, seven were wounded and 16 were unharmed. (PNA)
