CONFIRMED VIA SOCIAL MEDIA
Superintendent Chito Bersaluna, the Caloocan chief of police at the time of Kian's death, told the Senate inquiry that the police confirmed Kian involvement in the drugs trade through the social media. "'Yun lang po ang basis namin," Bersaluna said.
Assisted by the Public Attorney's Office (PAO), the Delos Santos family lodged complaints for murder and torture of a minor leading to death against Police Officer 3 Arnel Oares and Police Officers 1 Jeremias Pereda and Jerwin Cruz.
Their supervisor, precinct commander Chief Inspector Amor Cerillo, was included in the complaint for murder.
Days later, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) also filed complaints for murder, violation of domicile, and planting of evidence against the four cops.
