NBI continues to probe kidnap-slay of S. Korean businessman

MANILA — The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Monday said that they continue to conduct investigation on the kidnap-slay of S. Korean businessman Jee Ick Joo.

This was bared by head of NBI task force against illegal drugs Roel Bolivar.

Bolivar said the result of their probe on the case will be submitted to NBI Director Dante Gierran and Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II.

”We are preparing progress report for the information (and) submission to the NBI director and to Secretary of Justice,” he told reporters.

Bolivar however refused to comment if they have the copy of the recording of the conversation between Senior Police Officer 3 Ricky Sta. Isabel’s wife Jinky and PNP Anti-Illegal Drugs Group – Pampanga (AIDG) head Superintendent Raphael Dumlao.

Jinky claimed that Dumlao called her saying they were planning to tag another policeman in the crime and they would all be spared later on.

Jinky claimed that she met Dumlao and PNP Anti-Kidnapping Group head Senior Supt. Glenn Dumlao. They asked her to convince her husband to just follow the supposed “script” on the case of Jee’s case.

Aguirre ordered the NBI to provide security to the family of Sta. Isabel.

“Very serious ang mga threats nito, kaya ang ginawa ko ay kinausap ko si Jinky kung anong gusto niyang proteksyon at sinabihan ko na din ang NBI na tingnan ito kung paano sila mapo-proteksyunan,” he said in radio interview.

Aguirre said Sta. Isabel and his wife submitted an affidavit last Friday to the NBI saying that he was just framed up for the crime. PNA-northboundasia.com
