Descallar is Cleared

After having been cleared by Bacolod City Police Office OIC-Director Sr. Supt. Larry Decena, the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) also cleared Supt. Jefferson T. Descallar of any link to illegal drugs.

NAPOLCOM Regional Officer Atty. Marte Palomar has formed an investigating team led by Inspector IV Napoleon Arostique, with Atty. Jorelyne Gasataya and Inspector II Felix Leo Loriega, to conduct an investigation.

The investigation centered on an alleged complaint against Descallar by a "concerned media reporter of Bacolod and Mamamayan Kontra Droga" that was addressed to the PNP chief.

NAPOLCOM probers visited the Negros Press Club (NPC) and the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster sa Pilipinas (KBP).

Both media groups denied any knowledge about the supposed media reporter in their lists.

Local KBP chapter chairman Joppy Ploteria was quoted as saying that "if said media reporter is existing and comes from the fold of KBP, he should have passed the letter to our office and the KBP could have facilitated it."

Same with the NPC.

PDEA, on the other hand, reportedly told Descallar they conducted background check and found no Descallar linkage to illegal drugs nor is receiving money from drug lords.

Descallar was relieved from the Bacolod PNP on order of Regional Director Chief Supt. Josephus Angan signed May 9.

Local KBP Denies Hand in the Anonymous Letter vs Descallar

The local Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP)-Bacolod Chapter Chairman Joppy Ploteria here denied that a KBP member has a hand in the anonymous letter sent to PNP Chief Allan Purisima claiming members of Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) is receiving drug money from drug pushers.

Ploteria said, if that concerned media reporter of Bacolod is a member of KBP, his letter should have been passed to them.

Decena Clears Supt. Descallar of Illegal Acts

Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) OIC Director P/SSupt. Larry Decena had already cleared Supt. Jefferson Descallar of any link to illegal drugs or gambling and even had position papers for him to return to his position.

Earlier, Decena has sent official communication inviting complainants to come to his office and to substantiate their claims that Descallar is receiving money from drug lords. But they did appear or send any representative.

This made Decena conclude these complainants are "pseudo "personalities aimed at harassing police operatives. The complaints are fabricated," he added.

Observers claimed, the same fabricated complaints were also used to previous police officers that led the Special Operations Group, notably Supt. Santiago Rapiz.

Rapiz is now the police chief of Victorias City PNP and is conducting relentless operations against illegal drugs and gambling in the area.

A Repeat, Sequel of the ‘Avelino Sanchez’ Concocted Documents Similar to Descallar’s Fake Report

THE LATE POLICE CHIEF WAS ALSO A RABID CAMPAIGNER AGAINST DRUGS. The news report which appeared in a local newspaper about a purported letter sent by one "Maratas" and a mediaman, to PNP Regional Director Chief Supt. Or General Josephus Angan, Western Visayas police chief, if we recall, is similar to an allegedly documented report sent by a man who signed the letter and the accompanying supposedly authentic documents detailing BCPO Chief then Sr. Supt.

The Police is a Victim of the Clout and Power of the Drug Trade

DRUG TRAFFICKERS ARE LAUGHING SILLY AT THE PNP. Barely three days after we wrote an opinion piece about principled and highly at that effective police officers to include then, the late BCPO Chief Sr. Superintendent Amado Marquez Jr. Chief Supt. Noel Constantino and now Supt. Jefferson Descallar, the last was relieved from his post presumably because he ignored an anti-drug complaint against a suspect in Cadiz City where he was then police chief.
