[In the news] Murder charges filed against cop who shot two in Marikina City -MB
A string of criminal charges were filed Monday against a policeman who allegedly killed 23-year-old construction worker Kim Ramos and wounded his friend Lauro Lagarde in Marikina City in October.
Lawyer Ansheline Bacudio told reporters that charges of murder, frustrated murder, and planting of evidence were filed before the Marikina City Prosecutors’ Office against Police Corporal Herjonner Soller.
Bacudio said that Kim’s father Norman Ramos and another person whom the lawyer refused to identify due to security reasons stood as complainants against Soller.
“Nagfile po kami (We filed) against kay Soller. Siya po yung tangi naming (He is our only) respondent. Nag file po kami ng (We filed charges of) frustrated murder and murder case and planting of evidence,” the lawyer said.
“Na kay fiscal na po ngayon yung kaso tapos hinihintay na lang po namin ano yung magiging aksyon nila,” she added. (The case is with the fiscal and we are awaiting their action.)
Bacudio, who helped the complainants file the case, is a member of Initiatives for Dialogue and Empowerment through Alternative Legal Services (IDEALS)—a group of lawyers that provides legal assistance to individuals and marginalized sectors.
The legal group did not furnish media with a copy of the 20-page complaint, saying there is confidential information in the document.
