POLICE MAJOR SHOOT BOY DEAD

Saturday, April 6, 2013 

A police official in Bogo City, northern Cebu surrendered to fellow policemen after he fatally shot the 17-year-old boyfriend of his daughter.
Chief Insp. Ceferino Tabay Jr., deputy police chief of a Bogo City police station, said he thought the boy was trying to shoot him that’s why he fired at him.
Supt. Anthony Bagarinao, chief of police of Bogo City, said Tabay left his police station around 3 p.m. yesterday to eat and pick up her 16-year-old daughter from school. 
The school is 150 meters from the policeman’s house in barangay Guadalupe. 
On his way to the school, Tabay claimed that he saw his daughter in a shanty near the school with her nose bleeding. 
Bagarinao said Tabay alleged that when the boy saw him, the boy tried to draw something from his waist. 
Tabay said he thought that what the boy was trying to get was a firearm prompting him to draw his 9mm pistol and shoot the boy. 
Montesclaros suffered gunshot wounds in the head and chest.



SELF-DEFENSE? PNP DOUBTS IT

Sunday, April 7, 2013 

By Davinci S. Maru, SUN.STAR NEWS
POLICE investigators found loopholes in the statement of a police official in Bogo City, Cebu, who allegedly shot and killed his daughter’s boyfriend last Friday, leading them to suspect it may not have been self-defense.
Hounded by their doubts, the family of Vincent Paul Montesclaros, 17, sought the help of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) 7 for an autopsy and parallel inquiry.
Bruises on Montesclaros’ face led them to believe the teenager was mauled by Chief Insp. Ceferino Tabay Jr., 51, before he was killed. Tabay is the city’s deputy police chief.
Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO) Director Patrocinio Comendador also sent personnel to the Bogo City Police Station yesterday to investigate. He assured there will be no whitewash.
Supt. Anthony Bagarinao, the city’s police chief, told Sun.Star Cebu they found inconsistencies in the statement of Tabay after gathering evidence and interviewing the victim’s family. Read more: http://www.sunstar.com.ph/cebu/local-news/2013/04/07/self-defense-pnp-doubts-it-276366

SLAIN BOY'S KIN WANTS NBI IN

Sunday, April 7, 2013 

The family of the 17-year-old boy who was fatally shot by a police official in Bogo City, northern Cebu is asking for the help of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). 
The family of Vincent Paul Montesclaros went to the NBI after turning down the request of the Bogo City police to have the victim’s remains autopsied and be subjected to a paraffin test. 
Senior Supt. Patrocinio Comendador Jr., chief of the Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO), ordered the Provincial Intelligence and Detection Management Branch to investigate the case.
Chief Insp. Ceferino Tabay Jr., deputy chief of the Bogo City police station, admitted shooting the boy but claimed he did it in self-defense. 
The boy was the boyfriend of Tabay’s 16-year-old daughter. 
Tabay said he was forced to shoot the boy when the victim appeared to draw a gun from his waist. 
Tabay, who has been in the police service for 27 years, surrendered to the police after the incident. He also turned over a .45 caliber pistol which he said was recovered in the boy’s possession. 
Tabay was about to pick up her daughter from her school in barangay Guadalupe on Friday afternoon when the shooting occurred. 
Supt. Anthony Bagarinao, chief of police of Bogo, said the girl claimed that she and the boy were arguing before her father arrived.

FIVE minors were brought to the Bogo City Police Station on Sunday to testify as witnesses that a police official didn't act in self-defense in shooting his daughter's boyfriend.
The friends of Vincent Paul Montesclaros, 17, issued their affidavits through the help of the Women and Children's Protection Desk (WCPD) and said that Chief Insp. Ceferino Tabay Jr. twisted the story.
"This will only show that my son was defenseless and didn't have a gun when he (Tabay) killed Vincent," said the boy's father Paul, 37.
He said Natasha Faye, his son's girlfriend, sent text messages and called their friends for help that Tabay mauled Vincent before shooting him in Barangay Guadalupe last Friday at 3 p.m. Read more: http://www.sunstar.com.ph/cebu/local-news/2013/04/08/5-testify-cop-shot-daughter-s-boyfriend-276536

BOGO COP FACES MURDER CHARGE 

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

A COMPLAINT of murder was filed against a police official in Bogo City, Cebu yesterday for allegedly shooting to death his daughter’s boyfriend.
Bogo City Police Station Chief Anthony Bagarinao told Sun.Star Cebu the initial complaint of homicide was changed to murder because of witnesses’ accounts. 
“Naa’y nakadungog nila nga nihangyo kuno ni ang bata pero gipusil gihapon niya (Somebody heard the boy pleading for his life but the policeman went ahead and shot him),” he said, referring to Chief Insp. Ceferino Tabay Jr.
Last Sunday, five minors issued affidavits that Tabay did not shoot Montesclaros out of self-defense. 
Without the autopsy result, Bagarinao said they still lodged the case at Bogo City Prosecutor’s Office because they already have a post-mortem examination from the hospital.
“Mas maayo unta gyud ang autopsy pero ang pamilya kay di man magpatabang sa pulis (The family doesn’t want police assistance),” he said.
The Cebu Provincial Board (PB) requested Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO) Chief Patrocinio Comendador to conduct a “thorough and impartial” investigation on the
