The Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) has sought another more than a month extension to comply with the Supreme Court’s order requiring them to give details of the 3,806 killed under legitimate police operations from July 1, 2016 to Nov. 30, 2017 in connection with the government’s war on drugs.

In its 12-page compliance, the OSG submitted documents related to the deaths of petitioners in the Almora case questioning the Oplan Tokhang.


Submitted were case folders related to the death of Ryan Dave Almora, Rex Aparri, Conrado Beroña Gonzales, Jomar Manaois, Ryan Eder, among others.

The OSG also included a list of Chinese nationals involved in the drug trade from 2003 to 2017, number of buy-bust incidents in San Andres Bukid in Manila, and the drug watch list in Sta. Ana in Manila.


“The respondents need additional time to submit the other documents required by the court because said documents will still be collected and validated,” the OSG said.
Other documents required to be submitted are the following:

  • Names, addresses, gender, ages of those under  “death under investigation”;
  • Date, time and place of the killing;
  • Scene Of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) team leader and members who investigated the killing;
  • Investigation reports; and
  • Charges have been filed against the suspects, if there are any. /je
