Supt. Marcos’s baggage won’t drag PNP down, says regional chief

The negative issues surrounding Police Supt. Marvin Marcos, the newly-designated Region XII Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) chief, won’t have any ill effects on the local Philippine National Police (PNP).

Thus, said PNP Region XII Director Cedric Train even as Marcos–the former CIDG Eastern Visayas head–is set to assume his position this week.

Train, in a Brigada News FM GenSan report, noted that the CIDG operates as a separate unit from the PNP. As such, he said that the local police force will be insulated from the supposed controversies surrounding Marcos.

Train went as far to say that Marcos’s reinstatement is an advantage and that the CIDG members and the local cops will work to maintain good coordination.

Marcos, who has just served a four-month suspension, has been charged in the killing of Albuera, Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa, a suspected drug lord, last November.

The police official headed the operation wherein Espinosa was shot dead inside his provincial detention cell. The Marcos-led CIDG team was supposed to serve a search warrant.
