Senator Panfilo Lacson. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

MANILA, Philippines—Sen. Panfilo Lacson said on Tuesday there has been information that the 13 men who were killed in a shootout with lawmen in Quezon last Sunday belonged to a group that was allegedly involved not only in the illegal numbers game jueteng but also in assassinations commissioned by prominent and small-time politicians.

Lacson, chairman of the Senate committee on national defense, said the police operatives that intercepted the men aboard two sports utility vehicles (SUVs) based their information on a “long-running intelligence project” of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Calabarzon (referred to as “Police Regional Office 4-A”) that used “human as well as signal or technical intelligence.”

He said information gathered through intelligence efforts pointed to the group’s “guns for hire and illegal drug activities.”

“There are some big-name and small-time politicians in Southern Tagalog region involved or at least being rendered services by this group,” one of Lacson’s text messages to the Philippine Daily Inquirer read.

‘Rendered services’

Asked whether “rendered services” meant “assassination of political enemies,” the senator replied: “That’s it.”

A PNP officer who was not identified in previous reports said the convoy, allegedly led by Victorino “Vic Siman” Atienza Jr., has members known as guns-for-hire in southern Luzon and some parts of the Bicol region. PNP insiders have told the Inquirer that Atienza had been operating jueteng, too.

The source said Atienza and his group were supposedly en route to Daet town in Camarines Norte to start their own bookie operation when intercepted in Quezon.

Lacson, a former PNP director general, defended Supt. Hansel Marantan, head of the police contingent that engaged the men in a shootout at a checkpoint.

Earlier reports said Marantan was close to the head of a jueteng group that ran afoul with that led by Atienza.

Marantan’s involvement

On Tuesday morning, a number of radio anchors questioned Marantan’s involvement in one other encounter between suspected criminals and the police in a checkpoint.  One report said Marantan was charged with the killing of three suspected car thieves in Pasig City in 2005.

“Supt. Marantan has been wounded in action.  Instead of demonizing him, he should at least be given all the benefit of the doubt, if we can’t commend his efforts,” Lacson said.

“The fight against crime groups and criminal gangs can sometimes be very frustrating, not to mention highly risky, physically and career-wise. Believe me, I know where I speak,” he added.

Lacson urged the PNP “not (to) be deterred or frustrated by all the conflicting conjectures in the media that could put them in a paralyzingly untenable situation.”

‘Exercise caution’

The senator also asked media “to exercise caution and prudence in publishing unverified reports and monitor the result of ongoing investigations by different agencies of government tasked to do so.”

He stressed that those killed in Quezon province “were just a part of a much bigger group whose other members are now the subject of a continuing follow-up operation by police intelligence operatives.”

Apart from Atienza, the group killed in Quezon also included three policemen and three military officers.

One of the casualties, Supt. Alfredo Perez Consemino, was acting group director of the Regional Headquarters Support Group of Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan) regional office.

Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III said police operatives involved in the shootout should explain how 13 grown men squeezed themselves inside two SUVs on the lengthy route to Bicol.

“What’s the seating capacity of each SUV?” he asked in a text message.

Pimentel urged the PNP along with the National Bureau of Investigation and the Commission on Human Rights to investigate the encounter.

“If they won’t do it or don’t do a serious one, then I’ll be forced to ask the Senate to investigate this incident,” he warned.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5UOZM4PWIDKO7G64HL3PPMXUTM Constantine

    For Sen Pimentel info, each SUV has a seating capacity of 7 full grown adults broken down as follows: Ist row – 2 pax, 2nd row 3 pax and 3rd row 3 pax total 7 pax times 2 vans equals 14 pax capacity. I hope this can help Sen Pimentel.

    I thought they are already big. So if they are just part of the bigger syndicate then Lacson knows who their handlers are. Alam nya dahil nung nagtatago sya nakinabang sya sa mga corrupt na opisyal.

    jueteng is as nasty and dangerous as drugs. so bawat mga criminal groups lalo’t involved ang malalaking tao ay gagawa at gagawa ng paraan to discredit any operatives against them. media, sad to say, is being used (or is a willing participant) for this purpose. lalo na at me mga tiwali ring media kundi man di katalinuhan na nagsusulat without verifying facts first. dito sa PDI me ganyang mga writers eh, banat lang ng banat.

    Truer words have never been spoken as Lacson once  fled the country as a hunted criminal and has been involved in rubout killings and possibly even orchestrating the kidnapping of fil-chinese to fund election campaigns

  • JUDGE

    This “TRAPO” talks to much and his biased statements are already irritating to the ears! He is not the spokesperson of PNP or NBI to talk about the case without the final result of investigations. It seems that he is still too defensive after his involvement in the kuratong case years ago. This person is GAY! F*C*!!!!!

    Hindi ba nagmumukhang irresponsible ang ganyang pananalita ? Ikaw na nga ang maysabi na iimbistigahan pa.Kami lang naman ay naghakahaka ayon sa circumstances or ibang angles na napapaloob sa incident.
    Pero,hindi mo maialis ang mga pagdududa,lalo’t meron ng mga nauunang hindi kaakit akit.
    Kaya,mag post ka na lang rin(gamit ang alyas) gaya namin..dahil walang credibilty ang pinagsasabi mo.

    • etnarolfawa

      ikaw bakit hindi mo masabi ang tunay mong pagkatao….tapos sasabihin mong walang credibility  si mr lacson, tapos ikaw ay may pa alyas alyas ka pa…..sino ngayon ang tanga at hindi naiintindihan ang sinasabi…eh.

Saka imposible namang patay lahat ng 13 monkeys. Away ng mga may baril yon. Sobrang galit kaya walang natirang buhay. Ang mga pulis at militar na nagpatayan ay under the command of commander in cheif Boy AB. Bakit tahimik ang bibig nya ngayon at etong si Escape Artist Pink ang dada ng dada. “Daang Matuwid” ! nagpapatayan ang mga bataan mong puro kurakot.

  • efriend

    Senator Lacson is correct.  In a country where political or military or police connections matter, it is very difficult to enforce the law.  In addition to that are the tabloid trash spread by so-called journalists plus the conspiracy theories created by the relatives of the criminal elements.

  • opinyonlangpo

    AT least he knows that cops are crook. Its still best to avoid cops.

    To perpetuate the culture of impunity, Panfilo Lacson comes out to defend his copycats.

  • LabkoPinas

    Sen. Pimentel III is play acting. You mean he or his father never had a full size SUV? Give me a break! Lacson is right but what he forgot to mention or does not imply is the fact that all this bad guys deserve to die including the corrupt bad eggs in the military.

    Nag-roll down ng windows, tapos binaril si Col Marantan ?

    Looking at the pictures, why were the glass windows shattered by gunshot ?

    How can bullet SHATTER a rolled DOWN/CLOSED window ?

    If windows were rolled DOWN, why do they look CLOSED/ROLLED-UP still ?

    Were the persons in the cars able to RAISE the windows FASTER than the incoming bullets from the checkpoint policemen/Army troopers?

    Dear Commission on Human Right,

    I don’t care how these criminals killed whether “shootout, rubout, overkilled or what” for as long they were killed we have all the reason to be happy. Another bad element eliminated in the face of the earth.

    We need to congratulate the PNP and the rest of the team who neutralized these criminal elements. And to the symphatizers of these criminal groups pray that your families will not fall victims to this criminal groups and then blame the PNP if the crime rate increases.

    MABUHAY KAYO MGA PNP… More Power.

    Perception against the reality ito ang thinking ng mga tao pero sa mga namatayan ito ay Robout or salvage pero sa mga police at military personnel nagconduct ng check point this is Shootout. Highly recommend for transparency and future reference and to erase doubts, any Police or Military operations they should bring video camera or media personnel to conduct recording. Other countries they have these gadget or media personnel for transparency.

    Marantan reminds Lacson of his good ol days in MISG when you can just shoot at will.  How can Lacson be making this statements were does he get his information.  He kknows more than the PNP themselves all hogwash and publicity grabbing.

    Why not form a civilian Special Investigation Unit to do the investigation everytime a police is involve in a shooting incidents. 
    Corrupt PNP investigating another corrupt member, ridiculous.

  • Philcruz

    Senator Pimentel is puzzled how 13 people can fit in only 2 SUV’s and therefore he seems to conclude there is something really fishy about the shootout and thus threatens a Senate investigation because of this.

    Why doesn’t he just pick up his phone and call the PNP or the Manila Bulletin if it was two or three SUV’s. The Manila Bulletin says there were three black SUV’s.

    • koolkid_inthehouse

    These are desperate times. Criminals no longer fear the law enforcers. They are mostly either incompetent, easily scared or easily bought. It is during times like this that I wish we had a “Dirty Harry” on top of the PNP. He fought criminals by bending the restrictive rules a bit but he was effective.

    In reply to the question of Senator Pimentel, the seating capacity of the Pajero is 7 persons. That’s according to the brochures of the Citimotors Corporation in Makati City, distributor of Mitsubishi Corp. of Japan. As to the involvement of the Special Forces, that’s something that needs to be checked because they were not in a war zone.

    • tarikan

      Pre, sabi ni bishop hindi Pajero ang itinatanong ni Sen. Koko kundi Monteiro SUV (hehe). Anyway, it also has a 3rd seat therefore 8 adults is the capacity. Two in front (driver & a passenger), three in the middle seat and another three in the 3rd seat. Wala bang idea itong si Sen. Koko?

    “Supt. Marantan has been wounded in action.  Instead of demonizing him, he should at least be given all the benefit of the doubt, if we can’t commend his efforts,” Lacson said.

    Oh, Noynoy ano na namang tinatanga-tanga mo diyan?
    Hahahahahahaha!

    Ito naman si Lacson, nagconclude agad wala pang masusing imbestigasyon.
    Kahit papaano bigyan ng Hustisya yon mga napatay at di yon pumatay.
    Parang sinabi ni Lacson…Shoot to Kill.

  • koolkid_inthehouse

    All the top brass of PNP and including Lacson has made a conclusion on media interviews that the incident is a shoot out.

    I wonder if Maratnan is the PNP hitman or fall guy?

    Take it from Ping. He know better these things. Right, Senator?

  • Loggnat

    Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III said police operatives involved in the shootout should explain how 13 grown men squeezed themselves inside two SUVs on the lengthy route to Bicol. “What’s the seating capacity of each SUV?” he asked in a text message.//// A Suburban seats 7 comfortably and is ideal for long trips. Even if the men who died are travelling with Siman, they are innocent of all alleged innuendos ie. guns for hire, jueteng security, etc. until proven guilty in the court of law.
