THE Philippine National Police-Internal Affairs Service (PNP-IAS) recommended to PNP Chief PGen. Dionardo Carlos to dismiss from the service eight policemen for their involvement in a robbery case in Angeles, Pampanga last January.
The policemen were formerly assigned with the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group-Anti-Organized Crime Unit.
According to IAS Inspector-General Atty. Alfegar Triambulo, the buy-bust operation mounted by the eight cops was illegal since their intention was to rob their victims.
Last Tuesday, the IAS submitted to the Directorate for Personnel and Records Management their recommendation.
Recommended for dismissal from service are:
Police Major Ferdinand Mendoza
Police Staff Sgt. Mark Anthony Iral
Police Staff Sgt. Sanny Ric Alicante
PCpl. John Gervic Fajardo
PCpl. Kenneth Rheiner Delfin
Patrolman Leandro Mangale
Patrolman Hermogines Rosario Jr.
It can be recalled that among the items the policemen took were money, jewelry and cellphone from the victims worth P3 million.
