Negros Occidental police director Allan Guisihan said that, contrary to claims of the New People’s Army Roselyn “Jean” Pelle Command, there is no evidence that Chief Inspector Noel Mana-ay, Cadiz police chief is involved in illegal activities.
Guisihan reiterated his challenge to the NPA to present evidence against Mana-ay and also dared the rebel group to identify police and military personnel who allegedly provided them dossiers against Mana-ay.
Mana-ay, who maintained his innocence of the accusations of the NPA said the rebel group may have been misinformed by somebody affected by his anti-drug operations in Cadiz City.
Ka Noc-Noc, spokesperson of the Negros Island Regional Operational Command, confirmed at a press conference that NPA hitmen were behind the assassination of PO2 Johnny Urbano, and claimed that the data against Mana-ay was provided by his colleagues in the PNP, and even Army intelligence operatives.
But Mana-ay is by no means a target, Ka Marcos, spokesman of the CPP Visayas said.
He said this exposé is already a warning that he (Mana-ay) must stop whatever he is doing as far as the illegal drug trade is concerned.*GPB
