CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan — The Internal Affairs Services (IAS) of the Bulacan Police Provincial Office has summoned the relieved police chief of Hagonoy to give his side on the rape complaint filed against him by a female inmate.
Atty. Christina Alcantara, Bulacan IAS director, has also confirmed that they are now conducting a motu propio investigation on the rape complaint filed against Supt. Lorenzo Kim Cobre by the mother of an inmate allegedly raped inside the Hagonoy Police Station.
The mother of the alleged victim personally went to Senior Supt. Chito Bersaluna, acting Bulacan police director, on Thursday to file a complaint against Cobre and formally made the complaint at the women’s and children’s desk of the Bulacan PNP, Alcantara said.
Alcantara temporarily withheld the identities of the inmate and her mother who filed a complaint against Cobre.
“Because of the gravity of the accusation, Cobre was relieved by Bersaluna from his post on Thursday as police chief of Hagonoy so that he cannot influence the progress of the investigations being conducted on the complaint filed against him,” Alcantara explained.
Alcantara also added that Cobre has agreed to give his side on the rape complaint filed against him Friday. (RONDA Balita Online News)
