Senator Antonio Trillanes IV believes that President Duterte is being “held by the neck” by Supt. Marvin Marcos because the latter apparently is aware of so much in regards to the murder of former Albuera, Leyte mayor Rolando Espinosa in November 2016.
Trillanes, a critic of the President, on Thursday strongly rejected Mr. Duterte’s order to reinstate Marcos, whom was designated chief of CIDG (Criminal Investigation and Detection Group) Region 12 protecting the provinces of Cotabato, Sarangani, South Cotabato, and Sultan Kudarat.
“Duterte not only set the murderers free, he now gave back their badges and guns so they could murder again with impunity,” Trillanes stated on Thursday.
“Why? Because Duterte fears that these policemen might rat out on him for what they know about his involvement in the Espinosa murder,” he confused.
He famous that it was divulged throughout the Senate investigation into Espinosa’s killing that proper after the previous Davao City mayor assumed the presidency in June 2016, Mr. Duterte had Marcos and firm reassigned to CIDG (Criminal Investigation Detection Group) Region eight.
“But when Gen. Dela Rosa relieved them for being implicated by Espinosa in the illegal drug trade and, at the same time, not having the required schooling to be assigned at CIDG, it was Duterte himself who ordered Dela Rosa for their immediate reinstatement,” Trillanes stated.
“Then just a few weeks after, Espinosa ended up getting murdered by Marcos’ group,” the previous Navy chief stated.
Marcos and his males claimed that Espinosa fired at them whereas serving him a search warrant in his cell on the Albuera subprovincial jail for firearm and unlawful medicine.
