Why ‘Coplan Armado’ was not approved

PAOCC knew it was going to be ‘bloody’


The Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission (PAOCC) did not approve a proposed police operation against alleged “jueteng” operator Victor “Vic” Siman because it was a potentially bloody business, the Inquirer learned on Saturday.

But deciding it was its job to get Siman even without the PAOCC’s approval, the proponent—the intelligence unit of the Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) police—went ahead and got the alleged jueteng lord, but with a lot of collateral damage, prompting President Benigno Aquino III to order an investigation.

“Is it really within their mandate, or the regular assignment of that intelligence unit, to do that kind of mission?” Justice Secretary Leila de Lima asked on Saturday.

De Lima raised the question after one of the proponents, Supt. Glenn Dumlao, commander of the Calabarzon Public Safety Battalion, said on Friday that the regional police went ahead with the mission even without PAOCC approval on the presumption of regularity because it was their job to go after organized crime groups.

With the deaths of 13 men, including Siman, in an alleged shootout between government security forces and alleged guns for hire in Atimonan town in Quezon province a week ago, the decision of the PAOCC executive director, Chief Supt. Reginald Villasanta, to disapprove the proposal, “Coplan Armado,” appears to have been right.

A well-placed source told the Inquirer that the deaths in Calamba City on Nov. 12 of six alleged members of a gun-for-hire group tagged by the Calabarzon regional police as having links to Siman and the subsequent death threats received by Supt. Hansel Marantan, chief of intelligence of the Calabarzon police, allegedly from Siman’s group were the reasons why the PAOCC rejected the coplan (case operational plan).

“Given these incidents, if you were the PAOCC, directly under the Office of the President, would you approve a coplan like ‘Armado?’” the Inquirer source said.

Marantan was the only one injured among the 50 policemen and Army special forces troops who allegedly fought Siman’s group in a 20-minute gun battle at a checkpoint along a sparsely populated stretch of Maharlika Highway in Atimonan.

He was supposedly hit in the hands and foot, light injuries that failed to save him from suspicion and suspension.

But Sen. Panfilo Lacson, a former chief of the Philippine National Police, on Saturday cautioned against conclusions that Marantan’s injuries are self-inflicted.

Lacson called on the public to wait for the results of the investigation being carried out by the National Bureau of Investigation.

“At this point, everything is speculative. All these are conjecture,” Lacson said. “Let’s just wait for the investigation to be finished.”

“That should be the case,” said De Lima, who, like Lacson, attended the 20th anniversary celebration of the Movement for Restoration of Peace and Order in Intramuros, Manila. “We’re not judging anyone, because it’s still premature,” she added.

But with the information that it was the intelligence unit of the Calabarzon police that carried out the operation against Siman, De Lima asked whether intelligence units normally undertake such operations.

“Isn’t an intelligence unit supposed to gather information only, and there is a need to transfer—if it has already obtained validated facts through intelligence-gathering—to an appropriate unit that will conduct a field operation, such as that one?” De Lima said.

De Lima said Marantan and Dumlao should cooperate with the NBI in the investigation.

“I told the NBI to talk to all of them,” De Lima said. “The NBI has a list of those involved in the operation.”

The Inquirer source, an intelligence officer with knowledge of the case investigation, asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak to reporters about the alleged shootout.

The PAOCC is under the direct supervision of Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa.

The commission’s mandate includes providing funding for the intelligence, technical, logistical and legal needs of legitimate police operations against organized crime and terrorism.

The PAOCC secretariat recommended approval of “Armado,” which was signed by Marantan, as case officer; Dumlao, as case supervisor; and Chief Supt. James Melad, chief of the Calabarzon police, as case director.

But it was Villasanta who had the final say on funding. Even so, his decision needed to be vetted by the PAOCC board.

While “Coplan Armado” was dated Oct. 24, 2012, Villasanta said it reached his desk only in mid-November.

Puzzle pieces

The Inquirer source pointed out “pieces of the puzzle.”

“Look, Villasanta said he received the coplan in mid-November. By then, six men were already dead. A police officer (Marantan) was already receiving death threats from Siman’s group. Villasanta would not place the [executive secretary] and the President anywhere near this police operation,” the source said, referring to Ochoa and President Aquino.

“Coplan Armado,” in fact, traced a trail of blood that led to Siman and his alleged jueteng associates because of their alleged link to a gun-for-hire group.

It said that in April 2012, one Engelbert Aquino was killed allegedly by hit men hired by Siman and a jueteng partner after Aquino refused to join their numbers racket in Calamba City.

The same gun-for-hire group linked to Siman allegedly tried to kill Senior Insp. Nestor Sardina, chief of police of Sta. Maria town in Laguna in May 2012.

In October 2012, the gun-for-hire group ambushed and killed Insp. Romeo Criste, an operations officer at the Cabuyao City police, with the “disruption” of the jueteng operations of Siman and his partners as motive.

Then came the Nov. 12 incident. All six alleged members of Siman’s gun-for-hire group who shot it out with policemen in Barangay Licheria in Calamba City were killed.

The Inquirer source said that of the six men, only two were real hit men.

“The four others were mere bookies,” he said.

Target: Marantan

The deaths of the six men supposedly angered Siman, who pointed to Marantan as the one behind the police operation, the source said.

“Marantan was a target of Siman’s group after the Nov. 12 incident. He (Marantan) had begun receiving death threats via text messages,” the source said.

The source said the carnage in Atimonan could have been avoided had Marantan not shown himself to Siman at the checkpoint.

Among those killed with Siman were three policemen, including a senior police officer who was 12 years ahead of Marantan in the Philippine National Police Academy, Supt. Alfredo Consemino, and two Air Force soldiers.

The Inquirer learned that the Calabarzon police had a parallel coplan to “Armado” called “Coplan Bayani.”

“Bayani” zeroed in on police officers allegedly protecting Siman and his group.

The coplan also listed down 15 men who were allegedly the “civilian components” of Siman’s armed group. The list included environmentalist Tirso Lontok Jr., Siman’s bodyguards Leonardo Marasigan and Maximo Pelayo, and real-estate broker Paul Quiohilag, all of whom where killed in the alleged shootout in Atimonan.

Not license to kill

Inquirer sources from the intelligence community said that coplans are standard documents for building up cases against terrorists and notorious criminals.

“Coplans contain lists of targets to be arrested. It is under law enforcement, which means that the main objective is to arrest the targets and as such, the operations should follow the rules of engagement,” one source said.

The first Inquirer source added: “A coplan is not a James Bond movie. It does not have a license to kill. If the target was killed, it should be in a justifiable manner.”

The article seems going into cover up with Ping now in the picture with De Lima and Mar Roxas.

    • diamond_digger

      Filipinos can only expect Ping Lacson to help in the cover-up of the Atimonan incident, not just because of him being the PNP’s top brass but because he is bound to reciprocate the favor Dumlao has given him by exonerating him in his affidavit clearing Ping of involvement of the Dacer-Corbito double murder. Now, expectedly, he is doing the damage control lest Dumlao may make a-180-degree-turn and spell the beans on him ehivh msy ruin hid political ambitions.

    Dumlao is a part of that operation.

    Somehow, he is  back in service, NAPAKALAKAS NAMAN NITONG KRIMINAL NA ITO.

    The chief executive MUST thorougly investigate Marantan in all his killing activities to justify if his operations are all legit.

    Putting former suspected “killers” in-charge of military operations are dangerous. There will be suspicious activities because there is always the possibility that they will be tying loose-ends while performing their current jobs. Who knows, this might seemed like a simple over zealous effort to get Siman, but they actually just eliminated the elements that owe Dumlao some pay back and call them “collateral damages.”

      but the whole world, since the ASG is considered as an international

    Why is the INQ pushing the perspective of Marantan et al?

    Is it not the job of the police to build up a case  in order to put a prima facie violator in jail? Was a checkpoint style of arrest necessary?

    Why are we even talking about justifications for killings done outside the rules of engagement when it is obvious that Marantan et al purposely ignored many other less violent options (assuming Siman guilty).

    Our justice system is rotten in all levels – from the baranggay, the PNP, the prosecutor service, the DOJ, the courts, the appellate courts, and the SC. It is wrong to generalize. It is not fair at all to the many public servants out there who consistently provide excellent public service at great personal sacrifice. But it is very wrong to not recognize (and address) the glaring fact that there are many rotten apples in our justice system basket.

    Why are the INQ news articles on the Atimonan “shootout” so loosely written? May we hear from the INQ ombudsman?

    “At this point, everything is speculative. All these are conjecture,” Lacson said and seconded by Leila de lima.

    That’s rather easy for Lacson and de Lima to say. That’s also exactly what Lacson said some 17 years ago when he got implicated in Kuratong Baleleng case. To this day, there’s still no closure to the case. Likewise, justice continues to elude the families of Dacer and Corbito. With such pronouncements from these two administration lackeys, there is no doubt that the Quezon Rub-Out will be covered up just like Kuratong Baleleng before it. The witnesses will be silenced if not intimidated to seek asylum in Canada or elsewhere. Surprisingly, even PDI seems h3llbent in promoting the perspective of Marantan. From PNP to DOJ to the fourth estate, the cover up and whitewash are just too obvious.

    Naku, malaking organize crime ang nasagasahan ng grupo ni Marantan kaya ganyan na lang kagalit ang mga tao sa kanila. Ang di ko maintindihan, bakit ang mga tao ay parang panig pa sa mga criminal. Absurd!  Dapat nga ang tingnan ng mga NBI ay kung sino ba
    talaga itong mga napatay na grupo ng mga armado, Kasangkot ba talaga sila sa
    organize crime o ano.  Ayon kay marantan sa isang interview niya tutuong
    legit ang business ni Vic Siman but behind the business ay gun-for-hire.
    Posible di ba? Pilipinas kaya ito…walang imposible. Ang tanong kay Consemino,
    bakit security guard siya ni Siman…imposible naman na di niya alam ang dark
    business ni Siman. Dapat ang talagang imbestigahan ay ang mga taong ito. Ano ba talaga sila at ano ang mga connections nila sa isa’t isa?  Questionable talaga.  Sa side
    naman ng mga police, whether may irregularities ang operation the fact na may
    coplan…ibig sabihin meron silang legit na information or mission to go after
    this organize crime, otherwise hindi nakarating sa Palasyo ang coplan na ‘yan. At si Marantan, kung maraming death threat siya from Siman,e natural…meron kaya siyang clearance from his Superiors to execute the coplan….alangan naman na antayin na lang niya na  patayin siya ng grupo ni Siman.  Common sense diba?

    Sec. De Lima..sabihan mo ang mga NBI na huwag nagpapasok ng mga media so loob ng imbestigasyon o sa mga crime scenes….hindi tama. Dapat hindi lumalabas sa media ang mga findings nila…dapat sa korte lang.  That is very unprofessional. Sad. Marami ng tampered na evidences dapat tapon na mga ‘yan sa basura.

Kung ako ang Pangulo, lalong hahabulin ko sya ng operation ng shoot to kill, kasi kriminal siya na gumagamit ng death threat at murder pa.

    enforcement, which means that the main objective is to arrest the
    targets and as such, the operations should follow the rules of
    engagement,” one source said. 

    May dala ba silang “Warrant of Arrest”?  Bakit kailangan pang sa Quezon sila dapat tambangan? Maliwanag na ambush ang intention nila. Ang nakikita ko rito ay planned salvage operation with plenty of unplanned collateral damage tulad noong Ampatuan killings sa Mindanao.

    Tama lang ang ginawa ng grupo ni Marantan dito sa sindikato nina Siman.Kung aarestuhins mo lang itong si Siman dahil sa illegal jueteng or guns for hire na  ikakaso sa kanya, makalulusot lang yan sa husgado, susuhulan lang nya ang  judge at tuloy pa rin ang mga illegal activities nya. Dapat na mangyari, bigyan ng supurta itong si Marantan dahil sya lang may tapang para banggain itong mga salot ng bayan na ito.

    If Siman was really into jueteng eh di the task force did well. I agree with the comment below that NBI and the PNP should focus also on whether the group that was killed were really into crime, and if so, give Marantan a medal.

  • el_latigo

    I’ve got no love lost for jueteng lords, but curiously in this particular case, why single out Vic “Siman” when there are a lot of jueteng lords in this country? And many think that he is not even the biggest gambling lord in these parts, when there is  Bong Pineda allegedly the jueteng lord of Pampanga, rapist-mayor  Antonio Sanchez of Laguna rumored to be still lording jueteng  over there  from his cell as well, etc.?

  • wehd1nga

    ang daming krimen at kriminal sa calabarzon, rape murder akyatbahay drug running at drug addict na dapat unahin arestohin at patayin sa calabarzon, bakit eto si vic siman ang pinag initan ni maratrat, isip-isip mga tol…

  • Komen To

    The Inquirer source pointed out “pieces of the puzzle.”
    “Look, Villasanta said he received the coplan in mid-November. By then, six men were already dead. A police officer (Marantan) was already receiving death threats from Siman’s group.”

    First they were guns for hire, then changed to jueteng lords, now there is death threats. Is the PDI source reliable? Baka later they become carnappers, kidnappers, akyat bahay, etc.

    So many questions to ask
    1 the intelligence group gets info and hands over info to operations group – why is Marantan on the ambush scene?
    2 surprise for the intel head to be the person approaching the suspects and if fired upon, what bullet hit Marantan, why was he the only one hit?
    3 if Marantan has pending cases, why is he still assigned as head of the ground troops?
    4 if there is enough evidence against the suspect, why not get warrant of arrest and take Siman alive? Is the justice system not working in this country?
    5 trails of blood and slippers on one victim apparently was found by NBI away from the scene. Was the victim able to run away? ( alive, of course)
    6 empty .45 cal shells were apparently found on the floor of one vehicle by NBI. Were they left by SOCO purposely? Was it placed, or left to insinuate .45 cal pistol was fired from the inside?

    This is a very interesting case, good for scriptwriters and reporters alike. Interestingly, PDI is presenting another scenario as presented by their source, his “pieces of the puzzle”. I am really wondering a lot about this case

    Maybe it’s speculative that the PAOCC board itself is compromised with Siman’s own agents!. The board could be tainted with criminal hands that led to the PAOCC field personnel to act w/o approval.

    Maybe it’s speculative to say why not zero in on why was Marantan still assigned field work when he has a questionable track record!. Like the military Palparan, got promoted and continued with a bloody hand. But all will always have an end like this Palparan.

    Maybe it’s speculative to say that when to many possible reasons are released or so called gathered by media via undisclosed sources it’s a possible coverup!. The right questions are not being asked or damage control is creating a mindset for the readers.

    Maybe it’s speculative that the Philippine president is being protected from possible repercussion of this incident that Mr Ochoa want to be included in the protection or he’s going to spill the beans!. Somebody is intentionally being distanced to this incident to avoid the truth coming out. Their will be a fall guy but not the bad eggs that makes the decisions.

    Maybe it’s speculative that this happened because of an assured damage control and someone from the very top of the Philippine government is calling the shots!. I don’t think past rubout were really and completely solved that elements perpetuating this scenarios will stop.

    Maybe it’s speculative that all of this is happening because the government is in denial!. You can’t remove something that is already part of the system. Corruption in the Philippines can only be redirected because the people in it’s government does not think to develop but rather think to stay in government.

  • Pok2

     OVERKILL, Law enforcements use of deadly force are supposed to neutralize or maim but not to kill. Marantan gave a kill order because it is very obvious that they are in an L type ambushed position. I believe there was mole in Simans group riding on the third vehicle (if true) that got away because they could have been intercepted from the first checkpoint that they claim the victims have ignored. So many inconsistencies and hand washings. Obviously DIRTY.

    Too naive these investigators. I have only one question: why kill ALL the passengers and let no one is spare alive? Overkill. If this is gun-for hire and/or jueteng or drug related cases, an inquisitive and intelligent police officer who would want to know the sources of all these guns, names of the jueteng lord and other vital informations on the subject would definitely spare the lives of other passengers. Initial investigation revealed only ten shots were fired coming from the victims. At the outset, the police mind set is to wipe out everybody so as not leave any witnesses. Allegation of these victims carrying large amount of money is not a remote possibility. Papatay alang-alang sa salapi?

    Potentially bloody business?  If this is a valid reason not to go after guns-for-hire groups, then perhaps PAOCC should be abolished.  Going after organized crime is always bloody.  They are in the business of killing people.  They live by the sword, they die by the sword.

  • bryant85

    PAOCC is the main agency authorized to pursue organized crime syndicates. Dumlao, marantan, et al are merely officers of PAOCC, hence any operations that they shall undertake must be approved by the head of PAOCC or its designated signatory. Dumalo’s reasoning that the approval of Ochoa as head of PAOCC to their mission in Atimon is not necessary on a presumption of regularity since it’s their job to run after organized crime groups is definitely an utter display of insubordination, a wholesale disrespect and disobedience to the agency and its head. 

    The PAOCC is distinct and apart from the Military and the PNPA in its structure and operation that any officer at whim can perform an operation without clearance from the head. All operations to be conducted must be coordinated with all law enforcement agencies concerned for without a close knit coordination just like the gory Atimonan killings, a chaotic disorder is present to elicit suspicion of irregularity.

    Dumlao, Marantan and all men connected with the PAOCC involved in the Atimonan massacre must be suspended pending resolution of the case.

    Here’s one possible scenario:

    Papunta diretso yong grupo ni Vic Siman sa palasyo kaya may Office of the President na seal yong sasakyan nila. Posibleng kinuha siya ng mga escort na Air Force at kapulisan . Either aamin na jueteng lord siya at may balak na magsqueal ka Mar o PNoy. Natitiktikan ng grupo ni Marantan na ipapahamak ang grupo nila dahil ang kalaban sa jueteng ni Siman ay ang kapatid na babae ni Marantan. Kaya ang nangyari ambush talaga ang motibo at walang ititirang buhay dahil mapapahamak ang mga “utak” na maaring general o politikong mataas ang katungkulan. Four birds with one stone ika nga. Dedbol na si Siman at mamayagpag na sa jueteng yong kapatid na babae ni Marantan, kuha pa nila ang sandamakmak na pera ni Siman, di pa mabibisto ang monthly tongpats ng mga padrino ni Dumlao at Marantan, at hero pa ang dalawang bugok. Kaya kahit walang Mission Order at colorum yong “Kupalan Operation” ayun inupakan na kaagad dahil. yon lang ang kanilang pagkakataong mapigilan ang grupo ni Siman na ibisto sila.

    Unbelievable but this is the only plausible scenario.

  • Pangasugan

    Too bloody fo PAOCC that’s why it doesn’t want Malacanang to touch it? If these guys are squeamish by the prospect of seeing blood shed by criminals or law enforcement people, then they are in the wrong business. This is probably the reason why the government doesn;t wan’t to go after NPA and MILF camps. Too bloody!
    The problem is you cannot sign peace agreement with criminals.You have to arrest them and use lethal force if they resists.
    Lastly. what happened to the initial speculation that the shootout is simply a “war” between rival gambling operators and that Marantan is a protector of Siman’s rival? If Marantan is clean, then are we not suppose to support and motivate policemen like this?

    Siman is a jueteng operator who will do anything to protect his interests. This means hiring goons, hitmen, corrupt policemen and military, bribing politiicans, and killing anyone perceived to be a threat. The cop who died was a protector so were the military people who were on the SUV. I have no doubt about that and thats their fault. By associating themselves with a shady character, they put their integrity in question. However, Maratnan is also not in the clear. The fact that he had a history with Siman’s group put his motives and the whole operation in question. Who knows if this is all about personal revenge.

They are only using jueteng to mislead us. Dead men tell no tales, makakapagdeny pa ba ang mga patay  nor can they defend themselves? Then why kill all of them, paanong masosolve ang jueteng walang maiimbestigahan kasi pinatay nila lahat. 

  • carlcid

    Whether this bloody operation had Malacañang’s approval, or whether the CALABARZON intelligence unit was cut loose, and left to act on its own, what this incident clearly points out is that jueteng and other illegal gambling rackets are alive and well. And the military and the police are involved up to their gills in this whole sordid affair.

    Dumlao and Marantan judging from from the facts presented by reporters had violated the cardinal rule  on respect and obedience to your superiors in the enforcement of law and order. Be it be known that both officers can’t just perform a very sensitive mission sans the approval of Ochoa as PAOCC head.

    Therefore, their mission thereat Atimonan, Quezon where 13 people were killed is deemed unlawful since according to Ochoa, he didn’t approve it and without approval Marantan and his group who killed the 13 people including a police colonel must be made accountable.

    Kung sino man ang magte-takeover sa jueteng ops ni Siman, sya ang may pakana sa lahat ng ito. Kung totoo namang legit police operation ang nangyari, my congrats and thanks to Manantan and his group.

  • Love God

    Siman group wouldn’t have grown strong without the support and protection of law enforcement agencies and politicians.

    All big time crime syndicates got the backing of military, police, politicians and judges.

    It is a shocking fact and it hurts. But that is the truth.

  • milespacker

    It is fair to say that everything was fine up until the massacre. It looks as if Marantan hi-jacked the COPLAN to serve his personal agenda.

    • $40586212

      maybe the right word is, “he hi-jacked the coplan to save his life from Siman”…paunahan lang diba?  I would do the same thing if I’m in his shoes.

      • milespacker

        Marantan’s record is questionable, he also has an ongoing case regarding the killing of “carnappers” captured on TV.

        If all oplans, the police force and, in this case the army, were all at the disposal of people like Maratnan to save his own skin, then we the public whose taxes are being used for these agencies, would all be massacred.

        So I hope you realize that it is wrong.

    All the more na dapat managot si Col. Hansel Marantan sa nangyari. Wala naman talaga itong Coplan Armado na ito. gawa gawa lang ito ni Col. Marantan to eliminate the jueteng rival of his sister sa Laguna, Batangas, Quezon area na papasukin ni Vic Siman. Marami siyang dapat ipaliwanag sa nilabag niyang Police Operational Procedure. Swak na siya dito, wala na kasi yung Patron niya, si former PNP COP Nic Bartolome.

        NBI na ang mag-iimbestiga. Sabi kasi ni PNOY he smells something fishy. Duda ang Pangulo sa kwento ni Col. Marantan. Kung sinasabi ni Col. Marantan na guns-for-hire ang grupo ni Vic Siman, siya sana ang unang bumulagta. Hindi bumabaril sa paa at kamay ang killer. Laging fatal ang target niya. One bullet, one kill dahil pumatay ng tao ang trabaho niya. At saka bakit gagamit ng rehistrado at lisensiyadong baril yung mga nakasakay sa Montero kung hired killers sila? At bakit sila sasakay sa reshistradong sasakyan? Walang logic, diba?

        Nabasa mo naman siguro, hindi aprub ni Ochoa ang Coplan Armado, dahil this is too good to be true tulad ng ginawa ni Marantan sa Valle Verde, Laguna and Paranaque, Sa Valle Verde navideo si Marantan an planting evidence, [plate number ng sasakayan at baril] sa compartment ng kotse. Tinodas pa niya yung naghihingalong tao sa loob. Yun sa Laguna, pinalabas niyang gun-for-hire yung tinodas nila, bookie operator lang pala. Yung sa Paranaque, niratrat yung crosswind dahil daw getaway vehicle. Sino ang sakay nung Crosswind, seaman at yung 5-years old na batang babae. 

        Hindi aprub yung Coplan Armado itinuloy pa din ni Marantan. That’s a direct insubordination!  
        Lahat ng Operational Police Procedure tungkol sa checkpoint nilabag ni Marantan.

        Mag-isip kang mabuti Kamote!

    It appears na si Sec. Mar Roxas ang kontrabida sa Aquino administration.
    Ganyan talaga kapag masyadong masiba sa kapangyarihan.

  • gabbybal

    The point is: there was the jutting lord Siman, his alleged goons “gun-for-hire”, & his police protectors who died with him… They’re bunch of criminals the way it looks. Why malacanang is washing hands who created PAOCC? It’s very creation resulted in those killings…. What if Marantan & others are found on the wrong side? The PAOCC will be toothless as no brave police officers as did Marantan…. and likes if Siman will be laughing all the way to the banks & continue to feel untouchables. Get real PNoy, para kang baklang magdecide & taking full responsibility.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ACKTNXEQPYCGZ6JTCWAAT6GFZY Jobo

    Kaya nababawasan ang magagaling at matapang na pulis dahil after risking their lives doing their job– they are persecuted. Kaya yung iba sasali nalang sa masama, there they are given due credit. For the atimonan 13– impossible na hindi nila alam na jueteng lord ang sinasamahan nila. Pwedeng sinasama talaga sila kasi some of them being civilians and law enforcement authorities– alam nung jueteng lord na magdadalawang isip ang police forces ipursue sila. And kung lagi sila magkakasama the question is- ano legitimate business nila coming to Bicol. Heavy firearms were present and for sure nakikita nila yun– dapat dun palang umiwas na sila sa group ni siman kaya we cant say na wala sila alam or they are not involved. Alam ni Siman na sinusundan sya ng Pulis and thats why may sinasama sya civilians in his convoy. Q

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VPSXDLCQEZGZDJSX32G7PYHNCI Noel

    PAOCC said it did not approve the mission because it would be bloody.  What kind of reasoning is that?  Any operation against criminals and armed confrontation of course is bloody.

  • milespacker

    Is the measure of being “brave” the ability to kill people with overwhelming force? Brave ka ba if you kill someone who is outnumbered and outgunned? Parang hindi yata. More of a bully than brave.

    What about brave and at the same time intelligent? Wala bang mey ganong qualities sa PNP?

    • $40586212

      hindi naman bullying ‘yun dahil mga criminal naman ang mga napatay.  “Bravery” in the sense na may guts itong mga police to go after the criminals. And you’re right…bravery and intelligence go hand in hand…kaya nga nahuli ang mga ito.

      • milespacker

        Correction my friend, hindi sila nahuli. They were massacred. Before you call the people who died criminals, they should have been tried in the court of law and proven to be criminals through evidence. Hindi pwede yung papatayin mo and then call them criminals. Kung ganun-ganun lang yun, then everyone could be killed and called criminal.

        Fyi, most of those who died had no criminal records.

      • $40586212

        nakakatawa ka naman…sinasabi na nga nila na head ng organize crime si Siman…hellol!

      • milespacker

        Medyo pa-check ka, natatawa ka e wala naman nakakatawa sa sinabi ko. Sinasabi ng PDI na head siya ng organized crime? Sa nabasa ko e, maraming sinabi ang PDI example: Mey brother daw si Maratnan na involved sa STL, tapos naging sister.

        So learn to discern what you read.

      just a quick reaction brod, there was no news that marantan approached the suv van with the supposedly criminals or victims. what’s in the news earlier was that the suv van never stopped at the checkpoint. those in the suv while nearing the checkpoint started firing the checkpoint thus prompting the policemen and military soldiers to fireback and considering the numbers of the officials in the checkpoint as you said they numbered in 50, talagang walang bubuhayin sa loob ng suv yun.

    I salute Col. Marantan for his brave stand against criminals even though he didn’t get approval for his battle plan.. Some of his superiors were too scared for the operation. What a joke! Unfortunately Marantan became a victim of political survival of some people.

Pag-ji-jingle ka paharap, at isang kamay lang, yung isa ready to draw, pag tumalikod ka e. . . . .alam mo na.

      I am sure kung father mo, brother mo or someone in your family ang niratrat sa checkpoint hindi ganyan ang sasabihin mo. It is not right that 13 people died sa checkpoint, madaling sabihin na collateral ang iba because hindi mo sila kaanu-ano, pero someone’s father died a violent death there. Ni hindi alam kung sinu siya until well after the incident. Weak ang intel.

    The uniformed men in the company of Vic Siman may be a case of “Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are”. Vic Siman was tagged as a jueteng and drug lord so perhaps those uniformed men who were with him (Siman) were either protectors or partners. I just want to tell Marantan, next time you do operations like this…do it more convincing to appear as a “shootout”.

      • malek_abdul

        I’ve been in the company of a jueteng lord ( for 2 weeks) many years back. The most prominent protector I’ve seen was the PNP chief at that time and under him are colonels, majors, captains down to the traffic officer. Next protectors are mayors, barangay captains and tanods. Escorts during hauling of moneys are military and police who are in active service and AWOL. One governor (deceased) from south Luzon would even ask permission from this Jueteng lord to operate in his home province.

    the criminals killed their victims because they don’t care about the law and justice system…

    the “law” enforcers like police and military can’t just killed people because they are restricted by law…

    the killing is just saying, lawlessness is being exercise and being tolerated in the Philippines…

    what makes it dangerous is that the law enforcers killed their own brothers (policemen and soldiers)….. justified by rules of engagement during arrest… but it seemed, the victims didn’t engage…

    the FBI could easily killed Al Capone… but there is restriction… knowledge and abiding to the law…

    but not in the case of the Philippines, as the master himself don’t care about the law…

    it seemed there is impunity of lawlessness….

    It appears, as this item reported, that Supt. Hansel Marantan, whose unit has earlier killed six of Victor Siman’s followers and who was mad at the former for the loss of his men, wanted to get the latter first before the death threats against him are realised. 

    This is a jungle, where the survival of the fittest is law. But in this jungle, there is now law. How can one protect himself against unidentified killers and ambushers? No way. 

    From this time on, Marantan has to add more eyes around his head. Relatives and followers of Siman, Consemino and the others will surely not rest until they got him.

    In the past 7 years, Marantan was involve in the death of 40 people. Allege criminal elements involve in gambling.  
    It’s gambling not kidnapping, not robbery not drug dealings.  You arrest them and try them in court.
    Seems to me, Mranatan and group are acting as judge, jury and executioner, bypassing the laws of the republic.

    Oplan Armado belies the earlier report that the shootout was incidental and not planned.

    Part of the official report of Quezon PNP signed by Prov. Director Senior Supt. Valeriano de Leon last January 8th,  states “Since it was day time and checkpoint was equipped with signage, the occupants of the first vehicle, instead of submitting themselves for inspection, opened fire at the uniformed personnel manning the checkpoint.”

    Since the PNP is already tainted with too many controversies and has lost the respect of the public, it’s high time it should be abolished and replaced by a new name.  All officials involved in suspected/proven anomalies will be automatically separated from the service without prejudice for the continuance of their pending cases.

    So much information is coming out which is just taking this story to a bunch of twists and turns. The main point is that despite Aquino’s false efforts in terms of his fight against corruption, there is clearly so much crookedness and corruption still occurring under his Administration. Now, his department heads, lead by his KKK, are quick to deny and make excuses regarding the event. Everyone is pointing the finger at somebody else. However, it still doesn’t change the fact that this tragic events shows how corrupt the system really is under Aquino.

    • boldyak

      the thing is, Marantan is in the Inteligence and he has no right to be the leader of the enforcer who manned the cehck point, the question is…WHY IS HE THERE????…

       They are not making excuses..they are stating facts..Coplan Armado was not approved by the PAOCC but Dumlao and Marantan went ahead with the execution….Question: Why would an intelligence officer lead the charge in a self made dimly lit checkpoint in their civvies?..The answer is obviously to wait in ambush and kill and not necessarily just to arrest their suspected prey.

      • Your_King

        Well if what you say is true then it opens up a bigger can of worms which is how messed up is the system under the Aquino administration? This is directly under the President’s office and 2 people disregarded it? That’s blatant acts of disrespect of the law and authority. I suppose it’s not surprise when the President himself and his DOJ also disregard the rules and do what they please.

    There is no question that Siman is indeed a gambling lord.  The police operation was just a rubout to end the illegal activities of Siman.  They did it at a time when Siman was carrying a sizable amount of money and a load of gold.  

    To some people, they believe that the end does not justify the means.  They claim that Siman should be presumed innocent, and should be subjected to a legal process before being condemned.  But to some people that have been troubled by Siman’s illegal activities for so long, if the legal system could not hold Siman’s group accountable then an “extralegal” means is justified under the circumstances.  Sa aling grupo kayo?

Kung nahuli man na buhay ‘yang si Siman…sa tingin ko di pa nakarating sa precinto ay may tatawag na galing sa taas at pakawalan, or the judge will say, not enough evidence to convict him.  Mabuti pa execution style na lang kasi binubuwis ang mga police ang buhay nila para madakip ang mga criminal na ito tapos wala rin silang support sa justice system.

    The overriding concern now for the government is to determine what the death of 13 people was all about. Was the Atimonan incident a “shootout” or a “rubout”? Is an honest-to-goodness investigation being done by whom and who is on top of this? 13 dead persons, 13 grieving families. How long can the public expect to know the truth about the Atimonan incident, if ever?

    There is an obvious conspiracy in this entrapment. But from the looks of it, the conspiracy will also end up being murdered, especially with the possible involvement of a presidential group.

    wag po natin e judge ang mga tao… lalo sa mga victims na yan… lets us ask this… tanong po natin .. honest po ba ang mag bilang grupo… d po ba sila involve pareho sa illegal… sa mafia .. kapwa mga member ng mafia, nag papatayan… all we read are all hearsay or speculative.. no basis of truth … i respect life for any one.. whether saan side  ka… i think..police officer must be taught of .. the first subject in there school days sa academy.. ang ” RESPECT OF HUMAN LIFE”  meron po bang respect sa mga buhay ng mga na paslang… as i can see it.. it seems there is no plans to capture them all alive… all of the deads suffered numerous bullet wounds… a person who sustained so many wounds can be no longer a threat to the law enforcer… besides they are many meters apart… a wounded person can no longer aim his gun accurately , due to his injuries… especially you have bullet wound in your brain or arms or shoulders…one single bullet can stop you , two can immobilized you… lets not compare this to a movie.. where a fatally injured person can fire back and still kill or shoot you in your brain… i tried shooting in a firing range, or target practice.. i can not even hit the target.. at 10 meters,      how about if you have been shot and bleeding … can you shoot a person who is on cover or slightly protected by cover .. i think no…way…     did the team of marantan stopped firing once all of the occupants are no longer moving or firing back… i presumed after a couple of minutes all them are maimed or immobilized.. or can be considered as no longer capable of shooting you back…
           is there any plan to bring the wounded to hospital. or they are just left to die? maybe some of them can be saved … or there is no plan really to capture or bring them alive?…      every time a person or group of persons are subject to be arrested . in my observations… most of them are all dead or victim of summary executions… but not all… it is a common occurrence that a criminal or any person subject to arrest are shot to death… as always the case.. shootout or self defense .. in areas where there are witnesses . your lucky because you will not be shot at or get killed… every time that a crime scene or place of encounter are place where no lookouts or possible witness are present… tendency is to summary execute you…
          all i can say is … the team of marantan must respect human life .. get them alive as much as possible..the group of siman is not foolish enough to shoot it out where there is no chance to survive or get away.. first is the group of marantan is of superior in position , simans group is inside a vehicle. second, marantan s group has advantage in number with back up from the army . third marantan s group are well entrenched … with superior long rifles and lots of magazines and bullets… therefore … to surrender or show sign of giving up is a must.. or it will be suicidal… to engage them in a firefight… 
        on this basis i guess .. mr simans group have indeed planned to surrender .. amen

      I agree with what you’re saying but in a third world country like the Philippines, there is no such thing as regard to human life because its government is corrupted. The justice system can be bought where criminals can get away easily. The system is sucks. At bakit ang grupo ba ni Siman ay matino? Masagupa mo kaya sila di papatayin ka din nila na walang patawad…may regard din kaya sila sa human life? Kaya di natin masisi ang mga police na execution style na lang ang ginagawa kasi nagbubuwis sila ng buhay nila to apprehend these criminals tapos di naman sila supported ng justice system.

    maaaring nagpabaril si marantan sa kanyang mga kasama para magmukhang may ‘encounter’. Ayon sa initial report ng NBI, walang putok na galing sa loob ng dalawang SUV.

    Ayon kay Marantan, nagbukas ng bintana ang mga nasa SUV pagkatapos, sinara ulit.
    Kung ikaw ang nasa loob, hindi mo na maisasara ang bintana ng SUV.
    Uunahin mo pa bang isara ang bintana o kukunin mo na ang baril mo, na alam mo namang kahit isara mo ay tatagos pa din ang bala. 
    And sinabing sinara uli ang bintana ay hindi tatanggapin sa cross examination.
    Hindi na sila nagkaroon ng pagkakataong makapagpaputok. 
    Pinaputukan sila agad.

    Don’t get me wrong.
    If the group of Siman are notorious jueteng lord and gun-for-hire are true as alleged, well, he deserves that ending.
    What makes some eyebrows to raise is that there are more questions than answers on that operation.

  • Rovingmoron

    From what I’m reading it appears that there is also too much politics in the organization. I can say that there are still police officials who are clean or trying to be clean. This is now a question of who is the lesser evils. PAOCC knew in advance that the plan would be dirty, yet it has not stopped the group from pursuing the plan? Why? The decision of Dumlao and Marantan is much greater than that of the Palace officials? Crazy…How come palace officials didn’t tell them to forget about it?

  • Paliwaweng

    napakahina namang shooter yung bumaril kay marantan. 
    High caliber at mga automatic weapons ang dala nila, sa paa lang tinamaan?Bakit pa nila ipapayuko ang baril nila e mas madaling patamaan pag sa gitna ng katawan.

    • $40586212

      e gunggung siguro ang bumaril :)

    • Jason Cruz

      Di mahina pala si Marantan.   

    • $40586212

      malalaman din sa imbestigasyon kung binaril nga ni Marantan ang sarili niya. We have to wait and see.

      “It is possible that there was no exchange of gunfire,” according to source. Who’s the source Sec. Mar Roxas?


    ok ngayon, masaya na sina bishop cruz et al dahil nabawasan ang mga jueteng operators. sa tingin ng mata kong doling hero si marantan. so tagumpay si bishop cruz.

    Expect the NBI report will implicate GMA, Corona and Gov. Gwen Garcia.

    If I will check Marantan’s injury. I will look on the angle of the entry, the burns caused by powder on his skin and muscles(you cant have powder burns if the shooter is not as close as a foot or two). But even if I dont do those things mentioned…. Marantan’s inury is definitely self inflicted…

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_L7PILUDK6IPFGJLJNCM2IROCRY Albin

      Marantan’s wounds were caused when he tried to put some guns inside the victims’ vehicles. Naipit lang sa mga bubog.

    • VooDoo

      while marantan saying ang pointing his finger “dito mo ako tamaan” , suddenly went off and “BANG” ….kaya may tama ang kamay/daliri nia.. :lol:

  • Markov Chain

    maingay ang mga politiko ngayon dahil d pa dumadating ang payout galing sa rubout…tingnan nyo, pagnabayaran na ang mga yan, wala na kayong balitang mababasa about sa “atimonan 13″ (LOL)…..kung sino ang pinaka maingay, yan ang pinakamalaki ang payout….pera pera lang yan….

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NPV7TOHIJPG3UMTLQDTHLQJR7Y Jack

    report ni marantan: i look in the barrel and see no bullet. but when i squeezed the trigger,bong kunana and hit my hands and foot.

  • Guest

    Hintayin na lang natin ang imbestigasyo ng NBI, mas credible yun
    kesa sa imbesigasyon ng PNP.

  • Guest

    Sec. Roxas the possible source of this story to make it appear
    na victims of rubout ang 13 people including Siman, his friend/jueteng

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TULWWK3NWDBO3Y2ELXKYESRI4A Randy

     i my differ, rubout or shoot out? either way, but in reality its seems like it is OVERKILLED, no option of surrender for supposed or allegedly gun for hire group, how many bullets? 100…..200…300…400 on two vehicle, para silang sardinas na tinarget lahat nasa loob when shot. so it may be a shoot out for the first what ten bullets (one hit for marantan) that ended into a rubout, for the rest 20 bullets up to is it 400 b?. remember even criminals have the right for a due process which was taken to the alleged vic siman group. now we have to rest our case to the government investigator. god bless

    Bloody business should not be a reason to stop a legit operations. Bloody or not, illegal activities and criminals should be wiped out.

    But the problem with  Marantan is that he has a personal grudge against Siman that’s why they didn’t follow the protocols and the Rules of Engagement.
