Cop nabbed for taking bribe in processing of ID cards for security guards
MANILA, Philippines — A policeman was arrested in an entrapment operation in Camp Crame for allegedly receiving cash in exchange for expediting the processing of identification cards of 32 security guards.
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Oscar Albayalde announced on Monday the arrest of Senior Inspector Gerry Manuel Revecho, assigned at the ID Production Section of the Supervisory Office for Security and Investigation Agencies (SOSIA).
According to Albayalde, an entrapment was set against Revecho by agents of the PNP Counter-Intelligence Task Force, Civil Security Group, and Intelligence Group inside the SOSIA office on Friday (March 22).
Albayalde said Revecho received P20,000 in marked cash from a CITF agent who posed as a representative of a security agency. The money was reportedly for expediting the processing of the identification cards of the security guards.
Revecho was brought to the CITF office and will face administrative charges and cases for violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act and the Anti-Red Tape Act, Albayalde said. /ee
