Eyewitness wary of Maguindanao cops’ links to Ampatuans

An eyewitness in the infamous Maguindanao massacre had apparently requested that his confessions be withheld from the provincial police because they allegedly had “close ties” with the Ampatuan clan, the family implicated in the grisly crime.

This was according to SPO2 Cixon Kasan, the former officer-in-charge of the Buluan municipal police who placed on blotter the confessions made by Kenny Dalandag, the eyewitness, hours after the Nov. 23, 2009 carnage that left 57 people dead.

“Sabi ni Daladag, huwag ko raw ipaalam sa ibang mga pulis ang mga sinabi niya, lalo na kay Dicay,” Kasan said during the hearing while being cross examined by the defense at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.

Kasan said Dicay was Chief Inspector Zukarno Dicay, the deputy provincial police director of Maguindanao at the time of the massacre. Dicay is among the 197 suspects charged in the multiple murder case.

Dalandag was allegedly among the members of the Ampatuan clan’s private army who flagged down the victims and brought them to a hilly portion of Barangay Salman where they were shot to death.
