Kin of victims in the Oplan Tokhang files complaint at the Office of the Ombudsman

QUEZON CITY, Philippines — A relative of an Oplan Tokhang victim has filed double murder and an administrative case at the Office of the Ombudsman.

This is the second time that somebody filed a complaint to the Ombudsman against the Philippine National Police’s Anti-Illegal Drugs Operations.

A cop allegedly killed the husband and son of a certain “Gen”, not her real name, at dawn on September 15, 2016.

Eight policemen entered their house and asked the two victims to admit that they were drug pushers.

Alias Gen said, “We were all ordered to come down and my son Gabriel was left trying to stop the policemen surrounding my husband. My husband was down on his knees with his hands raised. He said he would just change his clothes. When I went out, I heard gun shots.”

Gen’s lawyer said they are looking at many angles in the killing such as “palit ulo” where an informant has to point a person to save his life.

NUPL’s Atty. Cristina Conti explained, “’Palit ulo’ may be a cause. You have to identify other people to save yourself. If you’re an informant, you have to point other people so you won’t be killed.”

The National Union of People’s Lawyers (NUPL) is encouraging other relatives of those killed in Oplan Tokhang not to be afraid and to show up and file a complaint. — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue
