IBP: Nuezca dismissal to deter cops from committing crime

THE Integrated Bar of the Philippines yesterday welcomed the decision of the Philippine National Police-Internal Affairs Service dismissing from the police force Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca — the off-duty cop who shot dead a mother and son in Paniqui, Tarlac.

In a statement, the IBP said the dismissal of Nuezca by the PNP-IAS will serve as deterrence for police officers to commit crimes against the people.

The swift action of the Internal Affairs Service of the Philippine National Police on the administrative case of Master Sergeant Nuezca by recommending his dismissal from the service for shooting his neighbors Sonya and Frank Anthony Gregorio is welcome and commendable.

Justice bilis” and making the malefactor accountable after due process is the more effective deterrence to crime and misconduct. It also helps restore the trust of the citizens in our police force and in our justice system. Prompt action on the recommendation of IAS in this case and on many other pending administrative cases will be helpful, ” the IBP said in a statement.
