Three of the 13 inmates who bolted a Caloocan City custodial facility early Thursday morning have already been re-arrested in various manhunt operations conducted following their escape. In a report from Caloocan police chief Col. Dario Menor, Harris Danacao, 28, Aldwin Jhoe Espila, 25, and Mark Oliver Gamutia, 21, are back in police custody.

The nine others still the subject of hot pursuit are: Martin Mama, 46; Gerrymar Petilla, 21; Hudson Jeng, 42; Reymark Delos Reyes, 27; Norbert Alvarez, 35; Jovel Toledo Jr., 27; Arnel Buccat, 19; Raymond Balasa, 35; Reynaldo Bantiling, 35; and Justine Tejeros, 22. According to Menor, the 13 made their breakaway from the Custodial Facility Extension Unit near City Hall at around 1:50 a.m. “during intermittent downpour of rain.”  The police chief added that the detainees drilled a hole inside their cell using stones and concrete nails. In a police report, two of the 18 remaining detainees who opted to stay claimed that it “was Arnel Buccat and Raymond Balasa who serve as the ‘mayors’ and ‘vice- mayores’ of the detention facility who planned the escape.” Police said they found out that the temporary suspension of visitation rights and the scheduled transfer to Caloocan City Jail were the reasons behind the escape. Two police officers manning the detainees will face criminal charges, particularly evasion through negligence, and administrative charges in light of the incident, Menor said......»»

French church attacker tests positive for Covid-19

The Tunisian assailant who killed three people at a church in France has tested positive for Covid-19, which could further delay his questioning, a source close to the inquiry said Tuesday. A woman lights a candle outside Notre-Dame de l’Assomption Basilica in Nice on October 31, 2020, to pay tribute to the victims two days after a knife attacker killed three people, cutting the throat of two, inside the church of the French Riviera city, and police arrest a young Tunisian migrant from Sfax who arrived in Europe only last month, according to French prosecutors. (Photo by Valery HACHE / AFP) Brahim Issaoui, 21, remains hospitalized after being shot several times by police after the knife rampage at Nice’s  Notre-Dame basilica on Thursday. “He hasn’t yet been questioned, his prognosis remains uncertain,” another inquiry source told AFP late Monday. Issaoui, who was known to Tunisian police for violence and drug offences, arrived in France only last month, having first crossed the Mediterranean to the Italian island of Lampedusa. Italian media reports say he was initially placed in quarantine with nearly 400 other migrants aboard a ferry boat, before being allowed to disembark  at Bari on October 9. Investigators have since determined he arrived in Nice on October 27, just two days before the church attack. One woman had her throat cut and a church employee was also fatally stabbed inside the church, while another woman managed to flee but later died of her wounds. Police say Issaoui yelled “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest) as they apprehended him, leading officials to say it was the latest in a string of jihadist attacks on French soil in recent years. Six people have been detained for questioning over suspected links with Issaoui, but only one remained in custody Tuesday, a 29-year-old Tunisian who was aboard the boat that brought Issaoui to Lampedusa, sources said......»»

PNP denies ‘overkill’ security for Nasino during baby’s funeral

The Philippine National Police (PNP) denied criticisms of an overkill in the security measures it implemented during the burial of the baby of jailed activist Reina Mae Nasino in Manila on Friday. In a statement, PNP spokesman Col. Ysmael Yu said that the security measures implemented were intended for Nasino who is under government custody after her arrest and subsequent filing of a criminal case for allegedly yielding a grenade during a raid inside the office of an urban poor group in Manila. “It is the subject (Nasino) who we were protecting,” said Yu. Netizens and other groups and personalities criticized the PNP and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology for what they described as disrespecting Filipino funeral rites. A video that went viral showed the police allegedly speeding off in a vehicle carrying the coffin of Nasino’s baby, which prompted the grandmother and other relatives to chase the vehicle. The funeral parlor and the cemetery were heavily-guarded. Nasino, who was handcuffed, arrived at the cemetery wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) gown and face mask and shield, with BJMP personnel heavily guarding her. The image of Nasino in a PPE gown, handcuffed and surrounded by BJMP personnel while grieving in front of her baby’s coffin triggered sympathy and anger from netizens who criticized the government for the treatment of a grieving mother. “That execution on security is appropriate, considering crowd control,” he added. Nasino was arrested in November last year in Manila during a raid at the office of urban poor group Kadamay. She and two others were charged with illegal possession of explosives, which they claimed had been planted by the police. She gave birth on July 1 but on Aug. 13 had to entrust the baby to the grandmother after the court handling the case denied her lawyers appeal to give Baby River more time with her mother either at the hospital or inside a detention facility where Nasino is jailed. During that time, Baby River was reportedly frail and underweight. The baby died last week at only three months old due to acute respiratory distress syndrome......»»
