Marlon, the victim of torture by the Chief of Police of Carmona Cavite went to the CHR (Commission on Human Rights) to file a formal complaint.
The CHR is in the process of getting his sworn written statement which will be used in filing the case when he decided not to file but few minutes later reversed his decision.
Marlon did not go to the CHR just to file a complaint but also to be put under protective custody for fear of his safety.
There is a need for Marlon to personally file the case but he is having second thought.
CHR on the other hand said that Marlon should personally file the case.
Failure of Marlon to file the case will not prevent the CHR from filing the case in his behalf but the case will be weak.
The case came about when a video came out showing the Chief of Police of Carmona in Cavite hitting the victim’s hand with a piece of wood after he was detained for allegedly committing a crime of theft for stealing his co-worker’s necklace and celfon.
The Carmona Police Chief, PNP Chief Inspector Jigger Naceda tortured the victim. The video that came out showed the act of the police chief maltreating the victim who at that time was under detention.
He was detained after he allegedly stole the necklace and celfon of his co-worker.
