P2M bounty for each ‘Parojinog cop’: Rody

PRESIDENT Duterte yesterday offered a reward of P2 million each, dead or alive, for cops who connived with the Parojinogs of Ozamiz City in their illegal activities, including dealing in illegal drugs and mass killings.

In his speech during the 116th Police Service Anniversary at Camp Crame, Duterte said: “Like the policemen who are now shortlisted in the killing of so many civilians buried in a cemetery there at the back of a barangay hall, each of the policeman carried on their head now, I’m announcing P2 million per head. And you are free to go and leave.”

He also reiterated his full support to cops who will be charged in performing their duties, specifically mentioning the likes of Chief Insp. Jovie Espenido, head of the Ozamiz City police, and Supt. Marvin Marcos, now chief of the CIDG Region 12.

Duterte announced the bounty in the wake of the discovery of a mass grave in Barangay Cogon earlier this week where the Parojinogs reportedly buried people killed by cops working for them. Details about the mass grave were provided by Ozamiz City residents.

He did not say how many cops are working for the Parojinogs but urged them to leave or go absent without leave.

“Two million per head, dead or alive. Better dead, because I have to pay for the funeral parlor, that is an added expense. I would rather buy rice for the people,” Duterte said. 

Duterte’s statement came days after Ozamiz  City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog Sr. and 15 others, including his wife, Susan, and sister Mona were killed in a raid conducted by the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group to confiscated illegal firearms.

In the process, the raiding team also discovered illegal drugs.

Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog and her brother Reynaldo Jr. were arrested and are now detained at Camp Crame.

Duterte had tagged the Parijinogs as among the narco-politicians operating in Mindanao and ran Ozamis City like a “feudal state.”

He also said he would make an unannounced visit to Ozamis City.

“I will not tell you when. ‘Yung mga kasama ni Parojinog, you will have your comeuppance,” he said.

Espenido, in a press conference in Camp Crame, said he will check if the policemen being referred to by Duterte are members of the Ozamiz City police force.

He said he has been receiving reports that a number of policemen have been aiding the Parojinogs in their illegal activities, adding he is still in the process of gathering information since he was assigned to Ozamiz City only last December.

“If there are some policemen from Ozamiz who are involved with the Parojinogs, maybe the President has more information which I still do not have. But it is true that there are some policemen involved in illegal activities of the Parojinogs,” Espenido.
“We will check if they are still active or if they are from Ozamiz.” 

Espenido, in an earlier radio interview, said that based on the statements of city residents, the Parojinogs led a criminal network that including faking accomplishments and ordering summary executions.

He said Ricardo Parojinog, the mayor’s brother, carried out most of the executions blamed on the family.

He added the Parojinogs extorted money from people caught in possession of illegal drugs but allowed pushers to ply their trade.

Marcos was the CIDG Region 8 chief when cops served a search warrant against Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa inside the Baybay Sub Provincial Jail in Leyte which led to his killing and the killing of drug inmate Raul Yap.

Duterte reiterated his call for cops to fight illegal drugs even if it means killing suspects who resist arrest. He said the fight against illegal drugs has claimed the lives of 83 policemen and 289 soldiers.

PNP chief Ronald dela Rosa, meanwhile, reminded the police force to sustain the gains made in the fight against illegal drugs.

From July 1 last year up to June 30 this year, Dela Rosa said 1,309,776 drug users and pushers have surrendered; 86,030 have been arrested; and 3,264 have been killed in drug operations.

“The PNP will not back down on challenges. Not now that we have a President whose only desire is to keep the citizens safe,” Dela Rosa.

“Yes Mr. President, we heard you loud and clear when you reminded us not to nurture loyalty to your person but I humbly tell you sir that you cannot take away from our hearts our loyalty to your ideals , dreams and aspirations particularly for a drug free and a peaceful nation,” he added.

NO TAKERS IN OZAMIZ

The Justice Department said it might seek the transfer of cases filed against Ozamiz City Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog Echavez and his brother, Reynaldo Jr., from the Ozamic City Regional Trial Court after local judges expressed plans to inhibit from the cases.

“It will be up to the DOJ management to seek the transfer of cases if there are no takers among the Ozamiz City RTC judges,” said Senior Assistant State Prosecurot Juan Pedro Navera.

Navera heads the panel handling the cases against the Parojinog siblings.

He said there are precedents, including the decision of the Supreme Court allowing the transfer of the cases filed against members of the ISIS-linked Maute terrorist group from Cagayan de Oro City to Taguig city.

Ozamiz RTC Branch 15 and Branch 35 Judges Edmundo Pintac and Salome had expressed plans to recuse from the illegal possession of firearms and ammunition and dangerous drugs cases that were filed by the DOJ last week against the Parojinog siblings.

The Parojinogs have asked the Ozamiz City RTC to allow them to visit the wake of their parents on August 13 to 14. – Ashzel Hachero
