13 men converged in time to rendezvous with death


January 5, the day before they met their end in Atimonan, Quezon province, the victims, coming from various places, met up with Victor “Vic” Siman at Turbina bus terminal in Calamba, Laguna. They boarded two sports utility vehicles belonging to Siman and the group drove to Jose Panganiban in Camarines Norte, according to a relative of one of the victims.

Siman was to see small-scale miner Ronnie “Enor” Habatin in Jose Panganiban, Camarines Norte, about a security agency business. According to the younger brother of Siman, Christopher, he met his brother for the last time on Jan. 4 in his house in Barangay Maunong in Calamba.

The brother said present in that meeting were Paul Quiohilag and several other people.

He also said that while the meeting was on-going, Siman was simultaneously talking to Consemino and Lontok over the phone.

Christopher said, the meeting was about closing a deal with the contract of Greenfield [Estates] for security services.

“They were even happy because it was a (new) project for them,” Christopher told Inquirer.

He said the last time he talked to his brother was in the afternoon of Jan. 5 when he called him from Malvar (Batangas) and told him that their fighting cock lost.

“I didn’t know they were leaving [for Bicol] that night. I only learned about it when I went to his home on Sunday morning,” he said.

Siman had been identified by the police as the sole target of “Coplan Armado,” the police operation to neutralize the alleged “jueteng” lord in the Southern Tagalog region.

Traveling with Siman were Senior Supt. Alfredo Consemino, his security consultant, and SPO1 Gruet Mantuano and PO1 Jeffrey Valdez, Consemino’s aides at the Headquarters Support Services Group in the Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan) police.

According to Patty, Consemino’s second wife, the police official decided to leave his car at home and ride with Siman.

“He said he would not bring his vehicle because Siman had fast cars, he would not be able to keep up,” she said.

Patty said she drove the three men to Sucat Road in Parañaque where they would catch a bus to Alabang.


Meeting at bus terminal

In Alabang, she said the men would take another bus to bring them to the designated meeting place at Turbina bus terminal.

Environmentalist Tirso Lontok Jr. also traveled from Alabang to meet up with Siman and his group in Calamba. So did Paul Acedillo Quiohilag, a real-estate broker and insurance broker who was trying to sell to Consemino an apartment in a condominium building in Alabang.

Consemino and Quiohilag may have met up in Alabang and rode together to join Siman at the bus terminal in Calamba.

If Lontok, Consemino or Siman knew that their trip to Bicol was going to be fraught with danger, they never showed it.

Their families, like those of the rest of their companions, had no reason to suspect they would all end up dead in Atimonan the next day.

Lontok left home early on Jan. 5 in a jovial mood for San Pablo City to attend the civil wedding of a fellow environmentalist, Manny Calayag, his wife Marife said.

Marife said that when her husband left their house in the village of Santa Lucia in Dolores, Quezon, she knew that he would be going later in the day to Bicol in the company of “friends.”

“Jun told me that he would first attend the wedding of a friend and then he would go straight to Bicol,” Marife said in an interview at her husband’s wake.

She said she did not know her husband’s traveling companions, except for Siman, whom she described as a friend of Lontok, but “the family doesn’t know him personally.”

According to Marife, Lontok traveled with Siman to visit Siman’s gold mining business in Jose Panganiban.

Sole target

She said the friendship started after her husband helped Siman with a problem with New People’s Army rebels in Laguna where Siman operated jueteng.

The civil wedding Lontok attended on the last day of his life was held in a resort in San Pablo City. He arrived at the wedding reception around 11 a.m.

Odd behaviour

During the whole time Lontok was at the wedding, the groom, Calayag, noticed something “odd” about the behavior of his colleague in environmental protection.

“He bade me farewell at least six times. He was already at the door to make his exit but he kept turning around to embrace me and again and returned to the hall to once more mingle and joke around with his friends,” Calayag said.

He said Lontok posed for photos with all his friends at the reception.

Janet Geneblazo-Buelo, former staff member at Tanggol Kalikasan and one of Lontok’s allies in his advocacies for environmental protection, also recalled how her slain friend hugged her tight several times.

“Though it was natural of Jun to hug and kiss her female friends, he was insistent to plant a kiss and be kissed in return because, according to him, he would be away for a long time,” Buelo told the Inquirer.

Francia Britania-Malabanan, another wedding guest and also a friend of Lontok, also observed something strange about Lontok’s behavior that day.

“He was extra sweet at the wedding. He kissed all his female friends before he finally left,” Malabanan said.

Calayag said Lontok left the reception at around 2:30 p.m. with his cousin and personal driver Ariel Saliva.

“He told me that he would go to Biñan City (Laguna) where he would meet with his associates before they would travel to Bicol. But he never told me what his business was in Bicol,” Calayag said.

Alabang stop

Calayag said his friend was killed wearing the same clothes he wore to his wedding.

Saliva, who acted as the Lontok family’s spokesperson following Lontok’s death, told the Inquirer that they did not go to Biñan but that he drove Lontok to Ayala Alabang in Muntinlupa and arrived there at around 3:30 p.m.

He said he did not know who Lontok went to see or what happened next, as he only dropped his cousin off then drove back home to Dolores.

“He just told me to leave him there in Alabang because he would meet friends who would travel with him to Bicol,” Saliva said.

The next day, Saliva said Lontok texted him at around 2 p.m. informing him that his group was already in Calauag, Quezon, on its way back home.

Saliva said Lontok asked to meet him at a branch of a popular fast-food chain in Tiaong town so that it would be faster for them to get back home to Santa Lucia in Dolores.

Saliva said he went to the restaurant at around 3 p.m. and waited for Lontok.

Lontok never arrived.

Saliva said he learned at around 7 p.m. that Lontok was one of 13 men killed in a shooting incident in Atimonan that he heard over the radio earlier.

He said Lontok did not tell him who he was traveling with and why they were going to Bicol.


STL operation

In an earlier interview, however, another relative of Lontok told the Inquirer that Lontok told his wife, Marife, that he was going to spend the night in Camarines Norte, but did not tell her exactly where.

The same relative also told the Inquirer that Lontok was a friend of Vic Siman, who was also killed in the shooting in Atimonan. Their friendship started after Siman asked Lontok to iron things out with communist rebels harassing his Small Town Lottery (STL) operation in Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon).

Lontok, who also advocated farmers’ rights, was known to have access to the communist movement in Southern Luzon.

According to his relative, Siman apparently asked Lontok’s help again when his STL operation in Camarines Norte was being threatened by the NPA in the province.

The widow of Consemino had no inkling that her husband was in grave danger that day.

She said she last spoke to her husband on Saturday, Jan. 5, when she asked him to drive their 18-year-old son to the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) in Silang, Cavite. Consemino is an alumnus of PNPA.

“My son said his father left after dropping him off. The next thing we learned: something happened to him,” the widow said.

Business partner

The widow said she and her husband rarely talked about his work, “because every time he’s home, his attention was focused on his family. All he did at home was to cook and feed us,” she said.

She said she knew Vic Siman was her husband’s business partner in a security agency.

Siman’s family declined to talk about his whereabouts before Atimonan, except to say that he left home on a “business trip” on Jan. 5.

Siman left with an undetermined number of cousins and bodyguards in SUVs. Four of Siman’s companions—Victorino “Tonet” Siman Atienza Jr. and Gerry Ancero Siman, both his cousins and bodyguards; Leonardo Catapang Marasigan, a distant relative and also a bodyguard; and Conrado Redresca Decillo, his driver—were also killed in Atimonan.

The two SUVs found at the crime scene were later found to be registered in the name of Siman’s wife, Gina Mamacud Siman.



According to Air Force SSgt. Armando Lescano’s daughter Eloisa, she did not know much about her father’s work except that he sometimes worked as a security escort as “sideline.”

On Jan. 5, she said her father left in the morning to go to Bicol on a “security” job.

She said she did not know who were traveling with her father and who he was providing security for.

January 6

One o’clock in the morning: Siman arrived in two sports utility vehicle Mitsubishi Montero convoy at the bus terminal.

Consemino and the others boarded the other Montero which became the second vehicle with Leonardo Marasigan as driver.

Siman with Decillo as driver, Maximo Pelayo, Gerry Siman, Jimbeam Justiniani and Victoriano Atienza were on the first Montero.

1:15 the convoy left the terminal for Camarines Norte.

The two convoy vehicle first stop was at around 7:00 in the morning in an unidentified restaurant in Gumaca, Quezon for breakfast.

After the break, the group immediately proceeded to their destination and arrived there past 9:00 in the morning.

“The house of Habatan was described as a mansion and was heavily guarded,” (parang mansion at maraming gwardya).

The meeting with Habatin started at around 10:20, with discussions focusing mostly on Habatin’s acquisition of the old security agency NewMarc in Laguna. Formerly owned by a Capt. Marck Braza, the agency was now known as Goldenor Security Agency.

A source said Siman and Consemino were Habatin’s “industrial partners” and they discussed how Habatin could get back P3.3 million he said he had overpaid to Braza.

The source said Siman and Consemino assured Habatin that Braza would return the money, even in installments.

“He was mad because Braza was in bad faith, sold the security agency to Habatin for more than what was stated in the contract,” the source said.

The meeting also discussed the group’s latest contract—providing security for Greenfield Subdivision in Alabang.

Habatin was the financier of the security agency and he gave Siman P5 million to pay the bond for the Greenfield contract.

“Apart from the money, the group also received tokens from Habatin,” the source said.

The source said Habatin also gave Siman and Consemino a gold lighter each worth P500,000 as belated Christmas gifts.

Habatin asked Quiohilag to find in Manila an apartment with a kitchen that he could buy, the source said.

Habatin wanted a kitchen because he always carried fish whenever he traveled to Manila, the source said.

The group had lunch with Habatin and then left at around 1 p.m. for the trip back to Laguna, the source said.

The source said the last contact with Atimonan 13 was at 3 p.m., while they were in Gumaca, Quezon.

“I was told they had lunch in Habitan’s house when I inquired if they had eaten,” the source said.

The source said the next contact with Atimonan 13 was at 6 in the evening, by then no one from the group picked up the calls.

    i think want nila mag tayo ng security agency nila para sa security ng illegal activities nito.Licensed kaya ang gambling operation nitong Siman at hindi ito involved in other illegal activity.Kasi kung pera lang ang question dito at Control sa area,siguro madali naman ayusin yan between Lord ng Juetengs.
    Ang masaklap,walang rason maki pag associate ang isang Police Col. sa isang Lord of organized crime and illegal jueteng,maski kapatid pa niya si Siman.Maski consultant pa si Consemino pa pagtatayo ng home for the aged if kasama niya si Siman na badLord,by default kasama si Col. sa ano mang gawaing illegal ni Siman.
    Malupit tong Siman,pati rebel infested area nasakop niya ng Jueteng.Ang labas niyan,financier siya ng Rebelde thru Lontok’s intercession.Obviously galit nga sayo ang Militar.Maski magbigay ka ng asukal sa rebelde pag malaman ng Militar,masama ang tingin sayo.

  • boybakal

    Siman was to see small-scale miner Ronnie “Enor” Habatin in Jose Panganiban, Camarines Norte, about a security agency business.

    From the looks of it, Habitan and Marantan were the ones who set up the Bait ang the Trap.
    He enticed Siman and Co. to go to Bicol for a purported meeting.
    That’s the only way, where Marantan can corner Siman, along the highway.
    That was the plan…a premeditated plan of Conspiracy.

    From then on, Habitan and Marantan were monitoring the movements of Siman.
    From the time they left,  his company, number of people and number of cars.
    Marantan beforehand knew who the escorts in the car.
    Siman then set up the sentry and a back up military check point. Motorists were diverted and prevented from passing the highway.
    Then the firing squad…a well positioned Firing Squad.

    Habitan should be investigated too.
    He should be charged too as Principal suspect.

    While the above was going on, Marantan and his men were cleaning and double checking their guns and ammunition to make sure everything is working order. They were also polishing on their moves and plotting contingency plans A, B and C of the ambush.

    In an interview with ABS-CBN on January 15, 2013, mining operator RONNIE BASAR HABITAN said Siman bought P100M worth of gold nuggets, gold bars and diamonds from a Bicol governor and loaded them in a white pick-up, part of the 3-vehicle convoy,  that was able to turn back to safety when the 2 black monteros were being riddled with bullets in the Atimonan checkpoint.

    The precious cargo, if true, could likely be the motive of the slaying – and your guess is as good as mine…

    Hmm.. seems to me that PDI reporters might be doing their jobs better than the NBI investigators. 

    “The source said Habatin also gave Siman and Consemino a gold lighter each worth P500,000 as belated Christmas gifts.”

    A small-scale miner Habatin giving gifts of such worth will certainly raise more suspicions about the “real” business the group is involved with.

      Investigate Habatin to shed light to its activities with Siman,why his villa is heavily guarded,and why he intend to bring fish to Manila.It’s highly improbable that Police are not aware of Habatin’s activity,and why the Police were tight lipped bout him.

    in the first place a policeman with official rank should have open their window and door of their car in checkpoint!!! why it is closed, meaning they are hiding something bad to the public.
    good for them on what they suffer, and the one manning the checkpoint is also wrong to fire this kind of shootout, its an overkill as they did not respond to a firefight. they should shoot first the tires of the car for them to be immobile. it should be a wait and see attitude for the one manning the checkpoint not trigger happy.

      Don’t you know the authorities manning the 2nd checkpoint were all in civilian attires except for the Army special forces which were all in full battle gear? And that there was no “CHECKPOINT – STOP SIGN” when the two SUVs were approaching except that a military truck was in the middle of the road blocking the road. You are asking question 
      based on ordinary situation. The place of the 2nd checkpoint is sparsely located that you can only see the densely trees lining on the side street. If you were the one inside will you open your window when the situation is full of mystery?

If you have evidence to the contrary produce it. Don’t you know they are now all dead?

         I fully agree with you, Bystander. It is indeed most unkind to say something unpleasant, much more impute nasty things about people who couldn’t even expalin their side of those accusations after having been brutally and mercillessly butchered by criminals masquerading as police officials. At the very least, if we cannot say something good about those victims, we shall not maliciously make nasty imputations on them.

        Siman and Company are engaged in illegal activities that caught the ire of Police and Military.This has nothing to do with wrongful connotation because how can you justify and defend the Police Col.escorting Siman who’s involved in Organized crime and illegal Jueteng.The Police Col. can’t and should not be doing that even if Siman is his own brother,that’s contrary to his job.How on earth will an environmentalist acted as a Jueteng tax courier of Siman to the NPA’s.Providing sugar to NPA’s will make you a marked man with the Military.
        The wives of these 13 people involved don’t know exactly what their husbands are doing,not even their itenerary.If you were not to impute wrongful connotation to their activities,you think they should rather be jailed?
        I would symphatize with them if they were Boy scouts or kids.They knew the consequence of their action,and their fate is not that far.

      • D_BystandeR

        If after explaining to you, you still maintain your idea that you are always

        hard-headed persons will take a snipe at you even if you can no longer refute their accusations because you are already six feet below, then that’s the time I can say and everybody will agree with me that it’s what

    NEUTRALIZE-what is the meaning of this word in relevance to the coplan? Is it kill? Or is it arrest? What? Please state it clearly, if it’s arrest, then why not say arrest? Is it because maratrat has no arrest warrant? Then most probably, it means to kill, so why use the word neutralize where as kill is a better and clearer word.
    If it is KILL, then what is there to investigate?

    Jueteng…this game of fun is vilified as game of crimes.
    It is more  source of sadness than joy and happiness.
    Of course, if you associated this Jueteng, the poor man’s lottery with bullets and deaths.

    Only people with negative thinking makes this Jueteng, an original, bonafide, our own game of chance as bad as it can be.
    First, this jueteng is as old even Magellan landed in the Philippines.
    This for sure is recorded in diary of Pigafetta that filipinos are good in numbers and play the number games for fun.
    In addition are sabong and childrens play called shatong and agawan ng buko at palosebo.
    In short, we are inventive people, creative people that changed King Philips outlook that we are pagans and beyond.

    Jueteng is our own, our culture, our customs and tradition which should be preserved like Ping Pong and Sabong.
    Unlike Casino, an imported game of chance that is discriminating for only the rich and famous can play.

    Only Bishop Cruz thinks that Jueteng is bad.
    Never heard of poor family died of hunger because of Jueteng. Nor a criminal hold up and kidnap in order to play jueteng.
    Never also heard that families were tore apart because of Jueteng.

    Jueteng do more good, good and good and no Harm.
    Legalize Jueteng….Jueteng is fun, jueteng is thrill and jueten makes people to think for what number to play and not remain idle.
    Only perception, bad thinking is what Bishop and Co. think otherwise.

      Your perception on Jueteng is as rusty as your brain and name.While there’s thrill in playing numbers,the government does not receive any revenue from this illegal game that generates millions if not billions of pesos.Gambling Lords does not operate illegal Jueteng only.They are also engaged in other activities like gun running,drug dealing and gun for hire.Bad Lord supports some if not lots of Politicians during campaigns.There is no Jueteng in progressive countries where people find productive ways to earn a living.Jueteng makes majority of people lazy and unproductive because they tend to be satisfied with their daily earnings just enough for the day,and so on.
      Imagine yourself,your entire family and kids if you merely depend on bloody Jueteng.Rather than you and your family members grow up as professionals,you justify Jueteng as your main source of livelyhood.
      Go on brother,be as successful as Vic Siman sporting SUV’s with presidential sticker and end up with lots of holes in your body not just in your car.

    That is what the Philippines has become. If you are on anyone’s naughty list, at least anyone with authority, you will become a target. Having a legitimate reason or evidence or even following proper procedure is no longer needed. In this case, Siman was the target and the solution was shoot to kill. In other battles in politics like Garcia or GMA suspension or jail. There is supposed to be due process and certain guidelines that need to be followed to prosecute someone but now it doesn’t matter. All you need is a personal reason and the position or authority.
