Ochoa disowns deadly mission



Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr. FILE PHOTO

Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr. on Thursday washed his hands as head of the anticrime superbody of any responsibility in the bloody Antimonan, Quezon, incident on Sunday.

“There is no mission order or any connection with the PAOCTF whatsoever,” Ochoa said in a text message forwarded by Malacañang to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

The Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Task Force (PAOCTF) has been renamed the Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission (PAOCC).

Ochoa did not elaborate when asked about the operation code-named “Coplan Armado,” apparently authorized by the PAOCC through Supt. Glenn Dumlao on Oct. 24.

In a statement sent via text message to the Inquirer, Chief Supt. Reginald Villasanta, the PAOCC executive director, denied authorizing the Atimonan operation that killed 13 alleged members of a criminal gang, including six police and military personnel.

Proposed, not approved

“There was no mission order. What we received was a proposed project that was not approved,” Villasanta said.

“Any project should be approved by the PAOCC executive director. In this particular case, I wish to point out that I have not approved the said project,” he said.

“As a matter of procedure, any operation supported by the PAOCC should be cleared and coordinated with the commission. In this case, there was none.  Hence, we have no prior knowledge of anything related to the incident,” Villasanta said. “Rest assured that the PAOCC will fully cooperate in any investigation.”

Dumlao was implicated in the double murder in 2000 of publicist Salvador Dacer and his driver, Emmanuel Corbito. The double murder was allegedly perpetrated by PAOCTF members.

However, it has yet to be established how Dumlao managed to return to the police service, with Malacañang clueless about his reassignment to the PAOCC.

The last time Dumlao hogged the news was when he turned state witness, executing three affidavits that eventually exonerated his former boss, then PAOCTF chief and now Sen. Panfilo Lacson. He  was accused as the mastermind  of the Dacer-Corbito killings.

Dumlao then claimed he had been tortured by officials of the previous administration to link Lacson to the double murder.

The PAOCTF metamorphosed into the PAOCC by virtue of Executive Order No. 46, issued by President Aquino on June 13, 2011. Ochoa was named chair of the anticrime superbody, which gathered the security, law enforcement and intelligence clusters of the Cabinet under its wing.

The PAOCC has 10 members: The secretaries of the Departments of the Interior and Local Government, Justice, National Defense and Foreign Affairs; the national security adviser; the chief of staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines; the Philippine National Police chief; the  directors general of the National Intelligence Coordinating Agency and the National Bureau of Investigation; and the executive director of the Philippine Center for Transnational Crime.

    Wild wild west justice style.  Django Sotto is right everybody should have a right to bear arms.  The police will shoot as a suspect without even warrant of arrest. 

    Self serving police personnel without any brain on how to apprehend armed suspects. No search warrant, no warrant of arrest.  This is deadly country, foreigners with their right mind will never come here in droves.
    Investors will think twice become moving here for fear of safety and fear of this undiscipline, happy trigger Filipino PNP and military.  If you survive the gauntlet of armed kidnappers, robbers and motorcyle riding killers, the Phiippine National Police and Armed Forces of the Philippines will take you down.

    Have a happy shooting day PHilippines! or Have a happy killing day PHilippines.
    Wish you all a happy new massacre year to all!

  • http://pedestrianobserver.blogspot.com/ Political Jaywalker

    No wonder we can’t distinguish between cops and criminals in a nation where cops are killing their own no one has a clue what’s going on.

    If a murder suspects gets his old job back and even ended up in a more powerful position with no one having a clue how he got back, something is really very wrong and that criminals are now the ones running our police force.

    Yo PNoy, do you really know what you meant with your favotite slogan of straight narrow path or it just sounded good to you because from the looks of it you are clueless on what’s going on?

    Parang alam ko na ang mangyayari sa imbestigasyon… Ang maaring mangyaring senaryu  ay matunton sa gagawing imbestigasyon kung sino-sinong mga matataas na heneral sa kapulisan o sa military ang sabit sa pangyayari. Kung malaking pera na umaabot sa milyon-milyon ang usapan, mas malamang na may padrinong mga heneral na hindi makakarating sa taumbayan ang kanilang mga pangalan. At dahil sa mga heneral para maging paborable ang gobyerno sa mata ng lipunan maging sa ibang bansa ay hihilutin at tatagalan ang imbestigasyon patungo sa kawalang pagasang malutas, hanggang unti-unti ng mawalan ng interes ang madlang-pipol at hanggang ang dating nakakagulat na balita ay wala ng balita.

    All police officers are license to kill, and corrupt as such. Whether there’s an operation or not.

    They are in cahot with their superiors.

    Could you imagine, I was once a victim. I bought 10 City Honda cars in 1994 i gave away to PENRO, CENRO of Laguna and Quezon, including the head in Manila.

    PENRO IN INFANTA, QUEZON, ISAGANI MANALILI, including 300,000 pesos cash.

    My partner, Doming Uy of Greenhills Subd., was not able to fulfill our agreement so I aborted our MOA.

    Consequently, he want his 2.5 miliion pesos investment back to him, however, when I uttered his investment is forfited because of “breach of contract”, he sued me for estafa and carnapping.

    Evidently, he went forum shopping, sued me 5 cases in 5 courts without evidence whatsoever.

    The anti carnapping group of Crame, force to get all the cars to the people I assigned in their names.

    They apphrehended me knowing our cars was not a stolen cars. The chief of the anti carnapping was bribe.

    I was brought for inquest at the DOJ. The following day as I was about to swore in whether guilty or not, the Prosecutor found out there’s no evidence of carnapping  and estafa coz all cars was in our names.

    To cut the long story short,  the cases filed by my partner against me was all drop and the prosecutors ORDER WAS TO RETURN ALL OUR CARS FOR LACK OF EVIDENCE.

    However, the chief of the Anti Carnapping group disobeyed the court order, he did not return our cars. Was given 1 car to keep for himself and hundreds of thousands of pesos according to my source, for the operation.

    How can you trust these police officers, they themselves are the once that are criminals in uniform.

    He is a captain as such. I’ll name him soon.

    • batangpaslit

      Bro, ano ang business mo noon? interesting story

    • farmerpo

       Sounds like your case is documented. Soon is not soon enough. Do it now. Also, sounds you are a logger or one who wants to build something with environmental impact. If you are legit, name the captain now. If you are not legit, kuwidaw, you might end up as a collateral damage.

    • AllinLawisFair

      Sa palagay ko ay si Ping Lacson ang nag maneobra para makabalik si Glen Dumlao sa service.

      Humanda sila kapag si Ping ang naging pinuno ng Philippine Anti-Organized Crime Commission. Tiyak na marami na namang malilipol.

      Hindi naman kasama sya sa Antimonan Massacre.   At sa Dacer case ang alam ko witness sya at hindi na suspect.   Baka naman talaga straight and dedicated officer ang taong ito,  itoy opinion ko lang.    Ang sigurado ako si Ochoa, Bartolome at si Puno (balak ibalik sa gobyerno uli) ay kasama sa nga big time syndicates katulad ng jueteng.

    That’s what happens when the President has no idea what he’s doing. People he’s chosen to surround him and run the Philippines (mostly Aquino KKKs) appear to be running amuck.

    redundant lang yang PAOCC…and then managed by Ochoa?

    doesn’t make any sense at all.

    Any anti-organized crime group should be led by NBI just like it is led by FBI in the US. This is one of those things that should be copied from the US structure.

    Now that De Lima oversees NBI as part of DoJ, it can be more effective and capable.

    • Garo Ungaro

      The FBI organization is a well respected entity of the Federal Government. They can handle investigate any cases given to them… with full backing of the Law.The problem in our government organization is the respect…by the people suppose to run it. The politics behind any activities by the people assign to do a respectable job. We don’t have that perceptions in our organization. No respect by the people working for the organization and the people itself has no respect for the organizations thats why? the result is always questionable. The politics is just too much? I don’t believed we can achieve that FBI standard…We don’t have RESPECT for anything.

    sana, PNoy, should have devoted himself in thinking through about economic reforms and structural changes for the better para naman mamuhay ang lahat ng masagana, hindi lang sila na lang.
    his governance is vindictive
    hindi ko naman sinasabi to gloss over ang mga ginawa ng kawatan. may Justice Dept naman, may COA, may Sandiganbayan—sila na ang magaskikaso nang ganung problema.

    Dissolve PAOCC, a relic of the Erap administration. It’s become a nest of rogue officers; how else can Dumlao return to police service without raising notice? There’s already the NBI and PNP, no need for more overlapping investigative bodies wasting public funds.

    bakit pa kaso tinoture ni pandak etong si glenn dumlao dapat sinalvage na lang katulad ng mga ginagawa nilang rubout na walang pinipili basta rapidohin na lang kahit sino ang tamaan.style ni ping lacson hehehehe

  • Guest

    Away ng jueteng operators ito. At maliwanag na sabit ang LP dito. Kaya tama ginawa ni Pnoy -NBI at hindi DILG ang dapat mag imbestiga dito

    Ochoa, Torres, Llamas, Dumlao, Puno,….don’t you just admire Pnoy’s sense of loyalty and judgment?

    • parefrank

      Of course. If you are close and “loyal” to Noy, whatever you do he will judge you “innocent”. 

      • speaksoftlylove

         Because if he will judge them guilty the verdict will always go back to him, that’s why.

  • josefe38

    Bakit ganito ka gulo at daming inconcistencies ang lumabas galing Malacanang, dahil dalawang grupo na nagpapatakbo ng jueteng sa bansa na puro hawak ng Malacang ang involve. Sa kaka balanse na mapagbigyan ang bawat grupo, tuloy lumalabas ang “tuwad na daan”.

  • brutsador

    Hindi mawawala yung Jueteng kase mga Gambling Lords malapit kay Uncle Peping , Anak ng Jueteng kung seryoso yung goberyno madali gamitan lang Ng BIR at AMLAC tulad ng ginawa nila kay Corona, Selective ata pag sugpo sa corruption . Ito ba ang daan matuwid? Kawawang Sec. Roxas wala syang magagawa nilaglag na nga sya ni Uncle Peping noong election ngayon naman itong Jueteng. BIR kasohan nyo na itong mga Gambling Lords meron naman listahan yung DILG. Yung Jueteng Lord Ng Quezon laging na sa Resorts World milyon milyon kung mag sugal saan galing yung pera di sa Jueteng. Kaya hindi ito Priority ni Pnoy kase takot sya siguro kay Uncle Peping. Pork Barrel at Jueteng dyan nabubuhay mga Corrupt na Politicians dyan nila binabawi yung gastos sa election , Kung wala ng Pork Barrel at Jueteng wala ng tatakbo sa election. Sabi ni Pnoy kung walang corrupt walang mahirap kaso puro corrupt pa din kaya dami pa din mahirap, Mga KKK ang sisira kay Pnoy. Only in the Philippines.

  • speaksoftlylove

    ba talaga ang may utak sa Atimonan massacre, si Paquito Ochoa o si Mar
    Roxas? One is the Crime Czar and the other is the DILG secretary who
    also happens to oversee the PNP. This the result of PNoy’s “management
    style.” Too many cooks spoil the Jueteng Broth. And, we will just be
    contended with counting the dead on account of their “warfare and
    jueteng business acumen.”

  • Fulpol

    Roxas gain?

    Ochoa loss?

    • speaksoftlylove

      Yan ang mahirap sa isang lider na walang sariling disposition. Umaasa na lang kung sinong malakas bumulong kaya walang cabinet meeting. Ang resulta ay kayang kaya paikutin ng mga tauhan niya. Dapat palitan na ni PNoy yang laruan niyang PSP ng tsubibo.

  • Andres_Bagumbayan

    Sandamakmak na “inutil” ang mga nakaupo ngayon sa palasyo…

    this incident destroys the tie that binds:

    2. PNP and AFP people

  • parefrank

    to danyboy2012

    What kind of people are you that you “herald” a plain killing as heroic? Remember, the killed have been tagged as “alleged”, not as “proven” criminals. And even proven guilty for the gambling charges, there is no death penalty in RP, Not even for the “alleged” killers for hire.
    So, this mission was nothing less than a Malacanang ordered or approved extrajudicial killing. The more, if really the commanding police officer is close to the gambling operator who did not want the competitors in his turf. And there is no such help and protection without a hoge financial return.

    • basyong

      parefrank you are absolutely right.this atimonan massacre will be the same level as the mindanao massacre the same script different personalities.the bottom line is they are supposed to set example to the PNP but it turned out to be the most barbaric lawless useless PNP.

    BUWAGIN na ang PAOCC PABAYAAN NA LANG ANG PNP.AFP,NSA,NICA and office ng transnational crime  na mag handle ng NATIONAL SECURITY ginagawa lang na gatasan ng MALAKANYANG yang opisina na yan tutal lahat ng personnel at logistic galing sa security agency na established na. 300 million ang budget ng PAOCC na yan bulok na man.  


  • m1600

    mga nagpapatayan dahil sa JUETENG pero sabi ni SIMEON ” JUETENG IS NO MY PRIORITY” but the money that come from it priority ba nya????

  • RicDab

    Panahon pa ng Kuratong Baleleng ganyan na. Meron pang Dacer-Corbito double murder case na di malutas lutas. Ngayon me Atimonan “rubout” na naman at mga bata na naman ni Lacson ang nasasangkot. Impunity? Ang hirap naman kina Dumlao di na sila madala-dala e parati naman sila nilalaglag ng mga amo nila. Dati si Lacson ngayon si Ochoa. On sekandthot, di nga pala  umuusad ang mga kaso laban sa kanila. Ibig sabihin talagang protektado sila. Matibay ang pader na sinasandalan!

  • RicDab

    How sure are you that these are all criminals? Have they been caught in the act or been convicted by the courts? This kind of reaction is one of the reasons why the culture of violence continue to prevail in our society. Presumption of innocence and the principle of due process must not take a backseat in the government’s drive to bring order and justice.

  • $20926843

    Another big question here is how come that the controversial Supt Glenn Dumlao is again employed in another crime fighting agency directly under the office of the president like its predecessor PAOCTF vintage Kuratong Baleleng massacre involvement? Don’t tell the public that this guy was able to sneak in at  the agency without the imprimatur of that inutile and autistic president in malacanang!?

  • Yxon

    what is this? why the shift of the subject to Dumlao? Going tabloid?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_E3CE56OQVPC4RPYD2NR4VD3SUE Bert

      and why not?

      • Yxon

        i mean the article shifted to Dumlao with any statement in relation. ( you have to get other articles to know)

      • http://www.facebook.com/tuzon.principe Tuzon Principe

        Dumlao is a player… dapat lang ma mention ang name nya

      • Yxon

        sorry …its the way the article was written that I was commenting …it has no transition or intro kung bakit nandyan si Dumlao…it just outrighly mentioned him.. for me who just read about Dumlao, is in the dark.you have to read other previous articles to understand the whole picture.

    Looks like people in good position to support the government’s efforts to eliminate criminal activities when cornered cower in fear of vengeance from these organized crime hoodlums.

    • Guest

      Tama! Kung DILG or PNP nga naman gagawa niyan tiyak magkakaroon ng
      whitewash. Si Sec. Mar Roxas pa.

  • malek_abdul

    Lashing lang si Ochoa nun kaya di niya maalala na inaprobahan niya ang coplan.

    • Guest

      Sec. Roxas just wanted to be in the headline news. Gustong sumabit sa
      mga balita. Epal na, sabit pa.

  • poltergeist_fuhrer

    kailan ba nagkamali ang mga yellow ribbons???

    they are always right…mga self righteous…

    siyempre KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK ito si Ochoa…so, he will be protected in whatever means….

    any investigation bastat sangkot ang KKKK will be nothing…kagaya ng LUNETA crisis

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2JVSEXTMANAEZGLOSZGWJYW67Q Jess

    Mr. Ochoa, operation was not “approved” by the Palace. But are you saying you did not know anything about it? These are 2 different things. I do not believe you never knew about it when this was a big thing. You even know the small things in the Palace.

    • Guest

      Atimonan incident is a legitimate operation. Pero duda si Sec. Roxas


  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4R3GZTGML26TV2VGS6RVHP2THM Fred

    Abolish PAOCC! It’s duplication of work with other agencies!
    Paquito, wala ka bang ibang ginagawa? kaya ikaw ang head ng PAOCC?
    Tapos palpak pa! Kunyari ka pa na walang mission order?

  • disqusted0fu

    What is Sec. Ochoa still in position for? What else does he do?

    Pnoy’s men do not know what else to do because there are no other directives coming from the president aside from making sure that they attain their political interests.

  • etomacq

    Malacanang said legitimate ang shoot out pero wala naman pala silang approved mission order? Tapos may mga irregularities pa sa pagconduct ng check point. Puro pala mga berdugo ang naglead sa operation na yan. Malamang isisi na naman yan ng Malacanang kay CGMA. LOL!

  • niceguy60

    Kudos na sana sa mga crime fighters. But this seems to be turning out as a buboo. Tsk Tsk Tsk. Palpak! We’re now starting to read shady character involvement right from the various Inquirer reporters/articles. What’s going on? Goverment resurrecting some old Erap era procedures?

    Inquirer must report some positive headline to deflect people out of this seeming bungled job. Too much bad news could get the ire of the higher ups. Careful.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/L6TTZGNCMP4XWQQCNIX65PTNJM Ciano

    sabi ni Lady Gaga legitimate daw ang police operation sa Atimonan.sabi naman ni Ochoa no mission order or any connection from PAOCTF..so, hindi aprobado.sinungaling talaga itong si Lady Gaga kasi ilegitimate pala ang police operation! hay naku! palpak na naman…sisihin na naman si GMA! lol..

    • speaksoftlylove

      Hindi lang masabi ni Paquito Ochoa pero maliwanag  na si Mar Roxas ang tinuturo niya. Alam naman ng lahat ng tao, maliban sa bulag, pipi at bingi kung sino ang overseer ng PNP. Yang DILG ay ang nagapprove ng Operation Tigbak kaya si Mar Roxas ang utak. Kaya kahit NBI wala tayong maasahang totoong resulta dyan.

  • opinyonlangpo

    Yeah right, wash hands. They know who approved or ordered the massacre. They can ask senator Lacson, it seems he knows a lot about the killers and the Coplan Armado. Right, senator?

    There will be no whitewash in the Atimonan shootout, Sec. Roxas told

    Madedemoralize ang PNP kung kakampihan ni Interior Secretary Mar Roxas
