A police team investigating the death of two bosses of the Ozamis Gang submitted its report Friday to Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters in Camp Crame.
The PNP chief, Director General Alan Purisima, did not disclose the findings on the killing of Ricky Cadavero and Wilfred Panolingan Jr.
“The report contains the results of the re-enactment of the attacked on the police convoy transporting the two leaders of the Ozamis Group,” Purisima told a press conference.
The report of the team, led by Director Catalino Cuy, the head of the PNP Directorate for Personnel and Records Management (DPRM), will be finalized for submission to Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II.
The PNP Internal Affairs Service (IAS) had come up with its own report, but Roxas, apparently unsatisfied, brought the DPRM into the case.
He gave the DPRM team until Friday to submit its report.
Roxas ordered the relief of the chief of the Southern Tagalog Police, Chief Supt. Benito Estipona and the entire team from the Regional Special Operations Group (RSOG), headed by Supt. Danilo Mendoza, which were escorting the gang leaders to prison.
Police earlier said that the vehicle transporting the Ozamis Gang leaders back to Calamba City, were reportedly attacked by motorcycle-riding gunmen in Barangay San Antonio, San Pedro, Laguna.
The attack took place several hours after Cadavero and Panolingan were presented to the media in Camp Crame.
Policemen reportedly shot and killed Cadavero and Panolinga on July 15 after they tried to grab the firearms of their escorts while the attack was taking place.
