Police, his brother extort P500,000 from Chinese national

A policeman and his brother who pretended to be policemen were arrested after extorting money from a Chinese woman at a hotel in Pasay this Monday morning.

Based on the report of the Pasay City Police Station, a Malaysian national friend of the victim approached their office about the arrest of two men who first identified themselves as operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) Pasay allegedly for human trafficking.


The Malaysian national received a text message from the victim that the suspects demanded half a million in exchange for the release of her friend.

The police immediately responded where they found one of the suspects sitting in the hotel lobby.

“Nagpakilala na DSOU naman siya so tinanong ng ating mga opisyal ‘yung kanyang Chief kung merong operations na ginagawa ang DSOU dito sa Pasay pero ang tugon ay wala kaya lalo na silang nagduda,” said PCol. Froilan Uy, chief of Pasay City Police Station.


“So inakyat nila ‘yung 4th floor, nakita nila ‘yung babaeng Chinese na nakaposas kaya inaresto na nila itong suspek natin kasama ‘yung kanyang kapatid,” added Uy.

It was confirmed that one suspect is a member of the District Special Operations Unit (DSOU) of the Southern Police District with the rank of Police Staff Sergeant while the accomplice wearing a camouflage shirt is his brother.

“Ang aming assessment kaya siya nandun sa ground floor ng hotel, hinihintay na niya ‘yung ipapadalang pera, eventually para mapakawalan itong babae na nasa itaas ng hotel,” said Uy.


Confiscated from them was a gun, IDs, P14,000, and three cellular phones. A fake I.D. was also obtained from the arrested policeman using a different name.

The suspects who will face complaints of illegal detention, robbery extortion, violation of the Comprehensive Law of Firearms and Ammunition, Falsification of Public Document, and illegal use of PNP Uniform refused to give a statement.

“Alam naman natin na ang pagiging pulis ay isang noble profession. Serbisyo ang dapat nating gawin, hindi perwisyo,” Uy insisted.

An administrative complaint against the police suspect is also being prepared.
