MANILA, Philippines—President Aquino has limited the scope of the Philippine National Police’s probe on the alleged shootout in Quezon after he ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to be the sole investigative body to determine what happened in the alleged shootout in Atimonan, Quezon, last Sunday that killed 13 people including three policemen and three soldiers.

“Just got word from the Palace that the President has tasked the NBI to be the sole investigative body to probe the Atimonan incident,” Justice Secretary Leila De Lima said in a text message to reporters Tuesday.

De Lima said the PNP’s investigation will cover only matters pertaining to source and use of firearms, and involvement of certain police officers.

“PNP will still conduct its own fact-finding relative to such matters as the source and use of firearms, the involvement of certain police officers, etc. But as to exactly what happened and culpability, if any, of those manning the checkpoint, it will solely be the NBI,” De Lima said.

    galing ni pinoy para alang cover-up……..dapat umupa sila ng FBI na magimbestiga para malaman natin ang totoo kung sino man ang may kasalanan at tanggalin lahat sila para mabawasan ang bugok sa kapulisan….

  • reader2323

    PNP(Pahingi Ng Pera) pinalitan ng NBI(National Bad Influence) puro corrupt yan cla at may koneksyon sa sindikato! TAMA ANG FBI na lang

  • basilionisisa

    good decision so that there is only one version of the Truth but make sure before releasing the findings (of both NBI and PNP in their respective investigation) that possible discrepancies are ironed out. para walang duda, walang balikan at second investigations.

  • rayingga

    good move let the NBI solve the case.

  • lennonpaul

    sitting duck ang nasa loob na sasakyan..tsk…rubout yan!

  • TEAM PNOY

    Daming shootout sa adminstration na ito, ewan ko lang kong bakit.

    May luneta shootout, dami namatay, pulis ang involved dito.

    May cavite shootout, dami namatay, foolish naman and involved dito.

    May quezon shoot-out, dami namatay din, pulis ang involved dito.

    Sa SC, pwede din mag ka shootout kasi karamihan ng justices may sukbit na baril habang nag hearing. Parang GI Joe and GI jane kung mag hearing, naka tiger look pa lahat. 

    Sa Congreso, pwede din mag ka shootout dyan. Bukod sa mga congresita de baril, ang daming bodyguards na naka baril din. Lagot kayo pag nagalit si meriam. Sharpshooter yan. 

    Ang inaanbangan ko ay malacanang shootout, it is a matter of time, pag may bata na stress dyan, naku delicado kasi may baril yon at nag champion pa. Tumba kayong lahat!

    Suggestion: wag patambay tambay dyan sa palacio kasi baka may mag amok!

      What does it have to do with the administration?

      • TEAM PNOY

        Well, the administration is claiming great improvement in crime rate, peace and order. What do you think?

    • Observer_din

      noong panahon ni Gloria konti ang nababalitang mga shootout na incidents, kasi ang laman ng mga balita noon puro lang yung involvement ng pamilya nila sa pagnanakaw ng pera ng bayan..

      • TEAM PNOY

        Noong panahon ng dating administration, mayroon din naman, yong maguindanao shootout or massacre.

        Pero this year, jan 8 pa lang, sunod sunod na ang balita tungkol sa mga namatay dahil sa nabaril or barilan. New Year stray bullets, Cavite, Quezon, yong mga na holdup, napatay sa bahay. Ang dami,

        Itong admin na ito from top down, yong mga taga malacanang, yon taga DOJ, yon taga BIR, yon taga LTO atbp, malimit mapasikat na magaling sila sa barilan. Ito ba ang gusto natin makita ng mga bata natin?

        Ang mga ginagawa ng matatanda ay gagawin din ng mga bata.

    LIVE COVERAGE  SANA ang hearing upang mabigyan ng BETTER UNDERSTANDING ANG KATANUNGAN NG BAYAN. Mag introduce na rin sana ang Ph ng bagong sistema sa ating justice system tulad sa Amerika na kung saan ang mga pinipiling mamamayan ang jurors. Basically, ang sistema ay kinukuha ang public opinion. Although judge din ang final decision, sa aking pananaw, may pressure sa jurors ang decision kung hindi patas.

  • Your_King

    If ever proof was needed to show how much ignored ‘jueteng’ is by Aquino, then this is it. 

    • Observer_din

      lalo na noong panahon ni Gloria,di pinapansin ng gobyerno noon  sobrang talamak ang jueteng, kasi sobrang busy sila sila sa pagnanakaw ng pera ng bayan.., ang balita pa nga hawak daw ni Mike ang mga jueteng lords eh..

      • jaygibi

        tsismoso!!! 

      • Observer_din

        sama ng loob mo? kasi totoo sinasabi ko, dapat nagbabasa ka ng diyaryo magmula 2001 hanggang 2010, doon ang laman laging ang pangungurakot ng pamilya at mga alipores ni Gloria.. hahahahaahah

    Hmmm… Rubout or shootout?One need to see facts at the situation. They say its a 15 mins shootout how come if you look closely to the incident the side window and front windows are filled with bullet holes. is it a surprice attack or what.  We could see that some of this men are with millitary ranks that have extensive trainings in thier field is it fair to understand that all this men are dead on there side and on the PNP checkpoint side only the head Supt. Hansel Marantan got hit?…. if I am in the van and ready have weapons at hand then I have upper hand to surprise my enemy and if I am in the check point then I will be the one who will stop the vehicle and put holes in the van and kill the remaining so that no one will tell a tale … so who hit first,.. a question to ask or is it.Hope justice will prevail.

  • kalikasanipagtanggol

    maski presidente yata hindi na pinagkakatiwalaan ang PNP! bakit ang NBI ba 100% ang tiwala mo pnoy?

    Aquino limits PNP probe on Quezon rub-out.

    PNP assures Aquino it can destroy evidence within limited role.

    DOJ De Lima assures Aquino NBI will bungle the investigation.

    CIDG & NBI will do their best to keep CHR in the dark.

    White-wash will erase Tito Babalu’s link to jueteng.

    Mission accomplished.

    Except sore thumb Jun Luntok the environmentalist continues to raise questions.

    Jun Luntok’s family should be silenced, thinks Tito Babalu.

    Next attraction.

      It is scary, the police have their own laws.

    Failed to stop at checkpoint?  Hmmm, it looks like the two SUV is nicely parked and didn’t attempt to get away.  And where is the third SUV is someone looking for it? Police statements are so amateur don’t they know this in the internet?

    Please find the third SUV it will really help your investigation.
