Lately, the public has lost trust in the police. The people who are meant to protect and serve others are seemingly obsessed with protecting and serving their own self-interests.
Countless scandals and controversies involving members of the PNP have been making the rounds lately, both online and in traditional media, such as print and TV.
Here, we have another case of a police officer drunk with power. An Iloilo policeman was caught forcing a female inmate to give him fellatio through the prison bars by a CCTV camera on January 27, 2017.
The cop was identified as PO3 Miguel Jancilan of Mandurriao Police in Iloilo City and he said that the purpose of his visit was simply to collect his SALN at 1 AM in the morning.
Jancilan entered the prisoners’ area and allegedly asked the female inmate for a sexual favor.
Jancilan could potentially be charged with rape.
According to a facebook post by RMN Network in Iloilo:
“EXCLUSIVE! CCTV FOOTAGE SANG MANDURRIAO PNP MAY KAANGTANAN SA ALEGASYON BATOK KAY PO3 MIGUEL JANCILAN NGA KUNO NANG HURIKAP SANG DUGHAN SANG BABAYE NGA PRESO.
Indi maklaro sa video kun gin hurikap gid man sang pulis ang dughan sang babaye nga preso.
Nahibalu.an nagpadulong sa police station para mag kwa sang SALN ang pulis pasado ala una sang kaagahon sang tinalikdan nga January 28, 2017.”
Many members of the PNP have been involved in numerous rape and sexual assault cases.
Recently, another Iloilo cop was arrested and charged with rape after he sexually abused his 15-year-old house helper. The victim shared with the Women and Children’s Protection Desk that the incident occurred on Jan. 22 during the Dinagyang Festival.
