MANILA—The Philippine National Police-Internal Affairs Service (PNP-IAS) has terminated its probe into the administrative charges against Supt. Marvin Marcos and 17 other officers involved in the operation that resulted to the death of Albuera, Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa, Sr. last Nov. 5.
At a press conference in Camp Crame on Friday, PNP-IAS Inspector General Alfegar Triambulo said the resolution and draft decision will be submitted to PNP Chief Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa.
Triambulo refused to disclose the results of their findings, but said the PNP chief has the final say whether their resolution will be affirmed.
The PNP chief has 30 days to review the resolution.
Marcos and his team are still under restrictive custody at the Personnel Holding and Accounting Unit in Camp Crame.
It can be recalled that on Nov. 5, 2016, Marcos led a raid conducted by the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) Region 7 at the Baybay City, Leyte sub-provincial jail that led to the death of Espinosa after an alleged “shootout”.
However, the result of a parallel probe done by the National Bureau of Investigation showed that the incident was a “rubout”.
