PNP-IAS's probe on Nuezca case to be resolved this week, says Sinas

Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Debold Sinas on Monday said the Internal Affairs Service is set to resolve the administrative case of Police Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca by the end of the week.

"'Yung case po niya ay hinihear na po ng IAS and the IAS, to handle the case niya, promised to finish the case at the end of this week. So we'll have the resolution and kuwan by Monday," Sinas said at a press briefing.

Sinas said National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) acting director Police Brigadier General Vicente Danao would be the one to decide if he will abide by the recommendation of IAS as Nuezca is under the jurisdiction of the NCRPO.

Nuezca is assigned at the Parañaque City Police's Crime Laboratory.

"Si RD NCRPO na po ang magbigay ng final decision if he will abide with the recommendation of IAS. Ganoon po ang sistema na gagawin namin para mapabilis po, para ma-achieve 'yung less than 30 days na pre-charge at summary hearing," Sinas said.

Nuezca, currently under custody of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology in Paniqui, Tarlac, fatally shot his neighbors Sonya and Frank Anthony Gregorio after a heated argument over "boga" explosion and right of way in December of last year.

Sinas promised that Nuezca would be dismissed from the service in less than 30 days. — RSJ, GMA News
