MANILA, Philippines—The ground commander of the controversial Atimonan, Quezon, shooting underwent a minor surgery to close the wound on his left arm on Wednesday, an official of the Philippine National Police (PNP) said.

Supt. Hansel Marantan went through a debridement operation to help him heal the gunshot wound on his left arm, which he sustained during a supposed shootout with alleged members of a gun-for-hire syndicate, according to Chief Supt. Ma. Angela Vidal, chief of the PNP Health Service.

Vidal said the police official remained wheelchair-bound due to the bullet wounds on both his legs.

“For some reasons, the wound on his left arm was healing rather very slowly. He is also complaining about the numbness and weakness on his pinkie finger,” Vidal told reporters.

“It could be because of infection or his blood sugar may be high,” she added.

She said Marantan’s father accompanied him during the hour-long operation done at the PNP General Hospital in Camp Crame.

Vidal disclosed that the police official might be brought to the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Taguig City in the next few days to undergo another medical procedure.

She said Marantan’s attending physician, Supt. Martin Sison, had advised him to undergo electromyogram and nerve conduction velocity to determine if the bullet, which hit his left arm had damaged his vein.

“We want to see what could be causing the weakness and numbness in his left hand. But we don’t have the equipment for that at the PNP hospital,” she said.

Vidal said Marantan has been staying in a 30-square-meter private ward at the PNP hospital. She said two policemen were assigned to guard him.

She said Marantan looked “fine” when she saw him last week. “He also appears to be contemplating on some things,” she added.

    Bukod sa sakit sa katawan gawa ng tama, meron ding sakit sa kalooban dahil sa sobrang pag-iisip kung paano malulusutan and darating na pinakamalaking kaso na kakaharapin nya. Akala kasi ng Bugoy na ito, napaka powerful na nya sa PNP at magagawa nya lahat ng gusto nya, yun pala bibitiwan sya ng mga boss nya pag dating sa gipitan.

    Mabuhay ka marantan, kailangan ka ng bayan na ang hukum ay nalalagyan kapwa niyo pulis ay gahaman isama muna ang mga politician na wala ng ginawa kundi mag payaman.

  • regd

    Might be a good idea to leave small pieces of nail before closing the wound, or a watch will do. Just saying.

    LOL…St. Luke’s is slowly but surely becoming the ospital ng mga kriminal. 

    • beerhunters

      What else can you infer if not that St. Luke has already transformed itself into a sanctuary and safe haven for those accused and alleged suspects?? Those under prosecution can ask and request prosecutorial asylum from St. Luke’s. St. Luke is now the patron saint of the prosecuted!

    Ayan, naka-wheel chair din at St Luke’s ang hantungan.

    Marantan undergoes surgery to close minor arm wound…

    Lucky for Marantan, only minor arm wound.
    Look at the car, too many wounds you cannot count…no surgery needed, totalled.

    Marantan undergoes Surgery, whereas Siman and the victims underwent surgery too for Embalsamo sa Morgue

    Is Marantan contemplating suicide? Good for him!

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

    Naku, baka magpapa hospital arrest na sya!

  • Paliwaweng

    The NBI should ask Marantan to re-enact what happened that fateful day when he goes out of the hospital.
    That is to see if it will corroborate with other witness accounts.
    And when it comes to the part of how he was being shot, use live bullets.

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

    Mamatay ka lang. Diyan ka lang makakaiwas sa mga ginawa mo. Kahit magtago ka diyan sa St. Lukes. Tutal yan naman ang mga taguan ng mga takas sa batas.
