Murder charges readied in Kian slay

PRESIDENT Duterte said he will order the prosecution of the killers of Kian delos Santos but asked that  the probe be allowed to proceed.

“Let us wait for the investigation and if it will show liabilities, criminal liabilities, I will order the prosecution to the full extent of the law. I will wait,” Duterte said.

 “That I can assure you. There will be no luto-luto diyan because I do not intervene,” he said.

Duterte said he will not visit the Kian’s wake because it might be misinterpreted as an apology.

He said it would also pressure the police. “I cannot do that because the PNP is under me,” he added.

He said it is enough that Vice President Leni Robredo attended the wake. 

“Good. Sana isinali niya ang pangalan ko kasi pareho kaming part ng gobyerno,” he also said.

Evidence is being consolidated for the filing of murder and administrative charges against the suspected killers of 17-year-old Kian Lloyd delos Santos, even as his family denied yesterday that they are involved in the illegal drug trade.

PNP chief Ronald dela Rosa also ordered the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) to lead the investigation surrounding Kian’s killing during an anti-criminality operation in Caloocan City last Wednesday.

Zaldy delos Santos, Kian’s father, said he and his family were willing to undergo drug tests to disprove the allegation of Dela Rosa that they are involved in the narcotics trade.

On Sunday, Dela Rosa said Kian was being used as a drug courier by his father and uncle.

But Zaldy, in a radio interview, said, “It’s not true. That’s a false allegation.” 

Zaldy said it was impossible for his son to be a drug runner since he followed a tight schedule in school and was even helping him in the family’s store.

“It’s unbelievable. If we are selling drugs, we would not be working hard to sell smoked fish,” he said.

Zaldy maintained that his son was innocent and a good boy.

“Nobody would have sympathized with us if we are involved in illegal drugs. Nobody would have gone to my son’s wake. My neighbors could prove what kind of a kid he was,” he said.

Zaldy asked Dela Rosa for a fair investigation and challenged him to investigate the case himself as he is confident of their family’s innocence.

The father also dared the policemen who killed his son to undergo a drug test.

Zaldy said he does not know the man presented on Sunday by the Caloocan City police, who claimed he often met with Kian and passed illegal drugs to him.
 
MURDER

Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) chief Persida Rueda-Acosta said her office will assist the Delos Santos family in filing murder complaints against the cops who shot Kian.

In a phone interview, Acosta said the Delos Santos family sought  PAO’s help.

She said her office is consolidating the evidence that will be used in the filing of the complaint “within the week.”

Acosta visited the wake of Kian in Barangay 160 in Caloocan City yesterday morning. 

She was accompanied by a group of forensic experts led by Dr. Erwin Erfe, who conducted a re-autopsy on Kian from 7:30 a.m to 10:30 a.m. at the second floor of Delos Santos’ house using the “forensics portable laboratory equipment.”

Erfe said based on the examination, Kian sustained three gunshot wounds -- at his back, behind the left ear and inside the left ear.

He said the first entry point was at his back, the second behind the left ear, and the third inside the left ear.

He said both bullets passed the left ear exited at the right side of the head. 

He noted that the first and second shots were fired while Kian was on the ground, facing down.

The third wound, he said, was fired by a shooter who was on the victim’s left side.

Erfe said all wounds came from a 9mm firearm. However, he said they cannot tell if it was the same shooter.

Acosta said the findings made the PAO decide on filing murder charges.

“When you were shot from behind, it’s treacherous,” she said.

Police insisted that Kian fired at operatives conducting the drug operation, forcing the cops to fire back at him.

Witnesses, however, claimed otherwise, saying Kian was mauled and given a gun before he was told to run and then was shot dead.

CCTV footage also showed that the teenager was manhandled and carried by two men to the alley, where his body was later found.

Dela Rosa said in a radio interview that the CIDG is in the process of gathering evidence which it can use in the filing of criminal cases against the three policemen who killed Kian. The administrative liability is being handled by the Internal Affairs Service.

He said he also ordered the three policemen to surrender their   firearms to the CIDG so they can undergo ballistic examination at the PNP Crime Laboratory.

He said the three policemen are now considered suspects.

Metro Manila police chief Director Oscar Albayalde has ordered the relief of PO3 Arnel Oares, O1 Jeremias Pereda, and PO1 Jerwin Cruz and reassigned them to the regional headquarters support group where they are under restrictive custody.

Albayalde has relieved Chief Insp. Amor Cerillo, police community precinct 7 commander where the three cops were assigned, and Senior Supt. Chito Bersaluna as chief of police of Caloocan City.

GMA News quoted Northern Police District director Chief Supt. Roberto Fajardo as saying that Kian, his father and uncle were not on the drug watch list of either their barangay or the police.

But Fajardo said Kian was a newly-identified drug suspect, selling at least 10 grams of shabu everyday, based on intelligence information. He said a case is still being built against Kian’s father and uncle.

Fajardo told a press conference in Camp Crame that a certain Neneng was ordering Kian to sell drugs.

He said the operation did not target Kian and his family, but he was shot because he ran. He added they were not aware that Kian was a minor.

He said they have a witness that Kian was a runner, referring to Renato Loberas whom the police surfaced days after Kian’s death. 

Unfortunately, he said the issue has been politicized, so Kian’s image has changed. 

Fajardo also said drug suspects are now using minors as runners because they will not be charged in court immediately.
 
PROTESTS

Hundreds of neighbors and left-wing activists marched and lit candles near the spot where Kian was shot dead by police last week.

Heavy rain did not stop the protesters.

The 34th anniversary of the assassination of democracy icon Benigno Aquino Jr., the husband of former president Corazon, also turned into a protest against the boy’s death.

The march started from Sta. Quiteria Church in Caloocan City at around 4:30 p.m. then proceeded to the exact place where Kian was shot in Caloocan City.

A similar protest action was held at the People Power Monument in Quezon City at around 6 p.m. despite the rainy weather.

Concerned citizens who attended the rally, dubbed “Himagsikan para kay Kian” called for justice for the slain student and a change of approach in the drug war. 

At the start of the program, the protesters, composed mostly of youth, were chanting “Sigaw ng taumbayan, itigil ang patayan.”  – Angela Lopez de Leon, Raymond Africa, Jocelyn Montemayor, Ashzel Hachero and Reuters
