MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte ordered a police officer to file a complaint against Iloilo Rep. Oscar “Richard” Garin Jr. and his father, Guimbal Mayor Oscar Garin, for allegedly beating, slapping and pointing a gun at him.

Police said father and son allegedly summoned PO3 Federico Macaya of the Guimbal Municipal Police Station to the Guimbal Public Plaza in Iloilo.


The Garins allegedly disarmed the police officer, conducted a body search on him, handcuffed him, seized his belongings, and while being held at gunpoint, hit him.

“Kung may kasalanan man ang police, its not a reason especially a police officer na bugbugin mo, so I will look into it,” Duterte told reporters in Albay after visiting the wake of Rep. Rodel Batocabe.

“So they will have to file the case, direct assault, we will file charges,” the President added.

He ordered Interior Secretary Eduardo Año to look into the incident and file proper charges against the lawmakers.

“I will ask General Año to take a look, investigate. But I am not urging him, I am ordering him to file a case agaisnt the two,” he said. /atm
