No whitewash in probe
on alleged slay attempt

Senior Supt. Dionardo Carlos, officer in charge of the Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office, assured yesterday there will be no whitewash in the investigation by the NOPPO of the alleged attempted killing of a suspected drug pusher, by purported police personnel.

He stressed the NOPPO will let the Commission on Human Rights and its special investigator, Jess Cañete, “do the talking first”, even as Carlos added he already started a parallel and independent investigation on the attempt on the life of Romeo Amoma Jr.

Amoma, 32, of Barangay Taclobo, Dumaguete City, had sought the assistance of the CHR in seeking justice for what he believes was a plot to kill him, allegedly by members of the PNP's Provincial Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Group on Dec. 14, 2014.
