City Councilors want 'Bato' to probe HPG


Some members of the Highway Patrol Group- 9 (HPG-9) are now in hot water.

This after the City Council approved a resolution calling on Philippine National Police chief, Director Gen. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa to investigate HPG-9 personnel who are allegedly involved in extortion activities.

Councilor Mike Alavar, author of the edict, disclosed that he personally witnessed an incident involving the Toyota Innova of his father when it was flagged down by two non-uniformed Highway Patrol Group members along Veterans Avenue.

According to Alavar, he passed by the area and saw a man who was not in uniform messing with the things inside the car.

During the session, four other vehicle owners, three women and a man,  who were also allegedly victimized by some HPG wanted to participate in the discussion during the recent session of the august body to share their experiences, but were prevented to speak in the session.

“Desmayado yo cay talla ya era maga victima para puede uyi todo si cosa gayot ya pasa canila pero nuay canila manda man cuento.,” Alavar said.

Alavar said majority of the members did not want the vehicle owners to participate in the Council’s discussion saying that the city council was not the proper forum to air their grievances.

“Keber aquel hombre ya abla cumigo cay mientras talla ele ta pasa na Canelar ya hace para cunele el maga HPG acabar el unu ya planta cunele armalite na cara pensabe ele primero man kidnap cunele. Cuando ya mira ele cay Highway Patrol, ya pregunta ele si cosa pero derepente ya lang ya abla cay hot car daw suyu Montero y ya lleba dayun na diila oficina. Acabar ta pidi sila P150,000 para puede ele saca suyu vehiculo,” Alavar explained.

The other women similarly claimed that they were approached by the HPG members and were told that their vehicles have questionable registrations. However, when they allegedly gave them money, the said authorities let them go.

“Now these are clearly their modus operandi and they are using these tactics to make money,” Alavar said. (Nonong Santiago)
