dies in road accident
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
A man believed to be a former police intelligence officer, who had defected to the New People’s Army many years ago, died in a road accident at the south national highway of Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental Saturday.
Police investigators have not confirmed it yet, but the man, whose driver’s license gives the name of Dave Aguilar Mercado, is believed to be Senior Police Officer 2 Joel Geollegue, formerly the deputy provincial chief of the Philippine National Police’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group in Negros Oriental.
This was before his defection to the NPA in northern Negros, for alleged “rampant corruption” and “injustice” during the Arroyo administration.
