2 Mandaluyong cops tagged in abuses now in Marawi
COTABATO CITY – The two policemen from Mandaluyong City who were caught on video maltreating two men are now in Marawi City to face the Maute terrorist group.
Chief Supt. Reuben Sindac, police regional director for the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), officially turned over Wednesday, Police Officers 1 Jose Tandog and Chito Enriquez to Senior Supt. John Guyguyon, Lanao del Sur acting police director, for deployment to Marawi City.
Last week, Tandog and Enriquez accosted two men for drinking liquor on the street in Mandaluyong City and hauled them to the police station.
A video caught Tandog hitting the one of the two men with a rattan stick. Tandog even pulled his gun and threatened to shoot one of the two men.
But one of the victims filmed the brutality and uploaded on the internet that made PNP Director General Ronald Dela Rosa fuming mad.
In the video, Tandog repeatedly challenged the suspects to fight so he could shoot them.
The two who readily obliged Dela Rosa’s order to be sent to Marawi City, arrived at Camp SK Pendatun in Parang, Maguindanao and reported to Sindac.
Sindac said they would form part of the police force fighting militants in Marawi City. SFM
