INVESTIGATION  |  PNP-IAS to dig deeper on slay case Carl Arnaiz and Reynaldo de Guzman

Alfegar Triambulo

CAMP RAFAEL CRAME, Quezon City (DWDD) – The PNP-Internal Affairs Service will continue its investigation related to the administrative case against the policemen involved in the deaths of Carl Angelo Arnaiz and 14-year old Reynaldo de Guzman, even if the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) was directed by President Rodrigo Duterte to handle the probe.

“Ang NBI naman ang kanilang tinitingnan ay kasong kriminal, yung sa amin ay administrative aspect. On the part ng IAS sa ating mandato, alamin kung may pulis involved at kung sino ang mga pulis,” PNP-IAS Inspector General Alfegar Triambulo said.

In the case of De Guzman’s death, Triambulo said they have yet to establish if he was under police custody during his time of death. De Guzman was linked to Arnaiz because there was information that they were last seen together.

“Yung De Guzman, yan po ang ating tinitingnan ngayon, wala pong report na may na-involve na pulis doon sa pagkamatay ng bata na yon na natagpuan sa Nueva Ecija. Pero dahil ang magkasama sila nung gabi ni Arnaiz kung mapatunayan yon, tayo ay magsuspetsa baka ito po ay kasama sa sinasabing nakipagbarilan sa pulis sa report na allegedly nangholdap itong si Carl. Yun po yung ating tintitingnan baka ito ay may pulis na na-involve din dito dahil sila ay magkasama,” Triambulo said.

IAS investigators are looking into police stations where De Guzman could have been brought. “Patingnan natin ang mga record ng ating mga kapulisan lalo na sa Caloocan, not only yung PCP 2, pati yung kanilang blotter sa Women and Children’s Desk at pati sa barangay kung ito ay may mga record sa paglabag ng ating batas sa kriminal o pagnanakaw. O kung meron ding call ng police assistance sa mga lugar na iyon. Pati na cctv na maaaring makatulong sa paglutas ng krimen na ito,” Triambulo said.

Triambulo said once NBI investigation sees probable cause they also recommend cases both criminal and administrative. “Usually, naman ang NBI pag meron silang investigation at me sapat silang ebidensiya laban sa isang suspect ng isang krimen, sabay po nilang i-refer ang kaso sa prosecutor’s office ang criminal aspect. At inilalagay nila sa disciplinary authority katulad ng Chief PNP o Napolcom ang aspeto ng adminsitrative case sa respondent na pulis,” he said. ALS / MCAG
