THE Philippine National Police (PNP) – Internal Affairs Service (IAS) will start processing summary dismissal proceedings against Police Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca, the cop who shot dead a mother and son in Paniqui, Tarlac.
This was bared by PNP Inspector General Atty. Alfegar Triambulo.
The PNP-IAS is also planning to submit results of the proceeding to PNP Chief Police General Debold Sinas on January 20,2020.
“Ni-shorten nga natin mga periods given by the rules sa pag-process ng kaso kay Nuezca para ma-beat natin ang 30 days but IAS is ensuring also na it will not disregard totally his right to due process,” Triambulo said in a radio interview.
Triambulo added the probe into the case started last Sunday.
He added the video, which showed Nuezca shooting to death Sonya Rufino Gregorio and her son Frank Anthony in broad daylight after they had a heated argument, was a strong piece of evidence against the police officer.
Nuezca surrendered to authorities and has been indicted for two counts murder.
The report said the killer cop is no stranger to administrative cases as he had faced grave misconduct (homicide) cases in May and December 2019. Both were dismissed due to lack of substantial evidence.
Earlier, President Rodrigo Duterte ordered authorities to make sure Nuezca remains in jail.
