MANILA, Philippines–Justice Secretary Leila De Lima and members of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) will go to Atimonan, Quezon to re-enact the incident where 13 people were killed last Jan. 6 including three soldiers, 3 police officers and an environmentalist.

Aside from the re-enactment, the Philippine National Police (PNP) Crime Laboratory will turn over to the NBI tech team all the physical evidence recovered from the scene of the shooting.

The NBI, an attached agency of the Department of Justice, has been tasked by President Benigno Aquino III to determine what really happened in Atimonan, Quezon and determine if there are people that should be held liable.

    What a waste of time! They should invite all the persons involved such as Supt. Marantan, Mr. Victor Siman et al to make the reenactment a little bit more realistic.. 

  • bugoybanggers

    Wag ng reenactment na iyan, isa pelikula nalang kamo para lahat makapanood. Pwede si R. Padilla si Supt. Marantan.. bahala na kayo kung si Bong revilla si Vic Siman. Masaya diba at kikita pa ang mga naulila kasama na ang DOJ. Larga na, isa pelikula na. Pahabol si Pnoy pala pwede si Gandang hari.

    If the actors in the reenactment were to be some Senators, I respectfully suggest the role of Supt. Marantan be played by Sen. Lacson, Siman by Sen. Enrile, the drivers of the SUVs by Sen. Estrada and Sen. Sotto.  If other Senators would like to join, an audition can be scheduled.

      Hahaha.. very good suggestion indeed!

      Si Datu Andal Unsay Ampatuan JR daw at ang kanyang mga tauhan ang gustong gumanap bilang mga police at miltar sa check point kasi sanay daw sila sa check point. May isang hiling lang si Datu Unsay, dapat may backhoe din sa checkpoint site.

      lacson should play dumlao & trillanes should be marantan…ochoa should be alan cayetano …..angara should be pnoy,…..drilon should be melad….LP should be  the govt security forces & una those inside the suvs….the question is WHO got the 100 million, the gold & the diamonds……. .lol

      • mad_as_Hamlet

        LOL!  Okay!  But in that case they should use live ammo.  For the good of the country and the greater glory of God!  DSWD can investigate after.

    What’s the use of re-enactment if they will act according to PNP scriptwriters?

    • bahaykubo1015

      Alam mo na puro drama lang naman ang mga ito. 

    • ryan andres

      Tama ka jan ser. Isang malaking sarswela lang ang magaganap

    Quezon shooting to be REENACTED…

    This is good.
    The reenactment needs 13 Volunteers and three SUV’s.
    To be created real, they will be shot with high powered Armalites.
    Reward…Free funeral and live tv interview.
    Those with criminals records will be given priority. Experience is not necessary.
    Apply at Coplan Armando, look for Mr. Dumlao.

    • farmerpo

       Mag volunteer kaya ang mga senatongs…

  • ryan andres

    Sarswela time!!! Action blockbuster hit eto!

    Here is your current cast of characters:

    Supot. Hanselengretel Marantado to be played by Lito Lapid
    Supot. James Meladramatic to be played by Bo-Bong Revilla
    Supot. Glenn Dumlao to be played by Titi, este, Tito Sotto
    Justice Sec. Leila de Lima to be played by Franklin Drilon in drag
    Depty. Pres. Spokesperson Abigail Valte to be played by Pokwang

    Based on a screenplay written by the PNP
    Directed by Paquito “Little President” Ochoa

    Currently auditioning for the “Atimonan 13″. Walang gustong kumuha ng role kasi mase-stereotype ang mga career nila… “raratratin rin lang naman kami eh… dun na lang kami sa pelikula ni Ping Lacson…at least mato-torture muna kami bago ratratin”

    Pwede rin mga members ng UNA ang gumanap sa Atimonan 13. The only condition is that real bullets be used in the “ratrat” scene.

    Movie is currently shooting, pun intended.

     Why re-enact the Quezon shooting?  Does it mean another 13 persons are going to be shot and killed?


    Alam nyo, si national artist caparas ay gumagawa na ng script dito. Ang mga kwento sa buhay ni kingpin marantan!
