MANILA, Philippines – The policeman caught on camera torturing a robbery suspect was dismissed from the service, a spokesman for the Philippine National Police said, stressing that the PNP will not go easy on erring personnel.

Chief Superintendent Agrimero Cruz Jr. said PNP chief RaulBacalzo decided "with finality" to dismiss Senior Inspector Joselito Binayug, the precinct commander of Asuncion, Tondo.

binayugpic_inquirernetBinayug was the one caught on camera last year torturing a robbery suspect who was bound and naked.

The Internal Affairs Service of the National Capital Region officially dismissed Binayug last year and Bacalzo denied the policeman's motion for reconsideration just last week.

"We will not tolerate violations of the law, much less those committed by our men," Cruz said in an interview.

"The chief PNP stressed that this kind of man has no place in the organization," he added.

With the dismissal, Binayug forfeits his pension and other benefits.

"He is also perpetually disqualified to hold any public post," Cruz added.

MANILA, Philippines—After 14 years, a complaint of torture filed by the so-called Abadilla 5 against their arresting officers were finally acted upon by judicial authorities.

The Office of the Ombudsman Monday recommended the filing of criminal charges against 15 policemen for allegedly torturing and violating the rights of five people who were convicted 11 years ago by Quezon City Judge Jaime Salazar for the June 13, 1996, murder of former Col. Rolando Abadilla, a dreaded intelligence officer during the Marcos regime.
