PNP chief unhappy with CHR

PHILIPPINE National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ricardo Marquez expressed dismay over the Commission on Human Rights' seeming lack of interest in pursuing a case against militants who mauled and detained two PNP intelligence operatives in Quezon City last Monday.

He said the CHR was silent on the incident because the victims were from the PNP. However, he said the CHR would immediately react if the victims come from the rank of the militants.

Activists held and mauled undercover PNP agents Chief Inspector Antonio Ananayao Jr. and Police Officer 1 Reden Malagonio during rallies held before the last State of the Nation Address of President Benigno Aquino III.

Militants accused the policemen of trying to infiltrate their rank.

Ananayao and Malagonio sustained injuries from the mauling and their valuables were taken from them, including their cellphones.

Ananayao remains in the hospital due to head injuries.

Marquez said what the protesters did to his men was "wrong and unacceptable" because the two cops were just doing their job.

"That is so much already, they should also respect the rights of our lawmen carrying out their duties in a democratic society," he said.

The PNP chief said they will file charges against the activists. (Sunnex)
