DID COPS PLANT SHABU ON VAN-RAPE SUSPECT?

Did cops plant shabu 
on van-rape suspect?



Aside from the three counts of rape cases pending at Branch 101 of the Regional Trial Court of Quezon City, the survivor van-rape suspect, Wilfredo Lorenzo, has also been charged with illegal possession of shabu at Branch 79 of the same court.

In their own affidavit, the three policemen who arrested Lorenzo admitted in their joint affidavit that they arrested the accused at 5:15 p.m. of 13 June 2016 despite the fact that the alleged rape incident occurred three (3) days before on 10 June 2016.

Meaning to say, the cops violated the rule of arrest that it must be caught in the act or that the crime has just been committed and the police officers have personal knowledge of facts and circumstances leading to a probable cause for arrest that the person to be arrested was the one who committed the crime.

Moreover, it is obvious in their sworn declarations in their affidavit that the cops relied only on the alleged victim of rape and the cops did not even know to arrest.

What is surprising though is the fact that these cops declared that they seized shabu from the possession of the suspect when there was no statement on how it happened and how a shabu sachet was found in the possession of the accused.

So that if the arrest because of rape cannot be done because the rape happened already too long ago and the police officers were obvious to be not in hot pursuit, then it was illegal for them to arrest Lorenzo.

And if the arrest was illegal, all evidence taken by the police as a result of the arrest for rape are considered as fruits of the poisonous tree and as a consequence the shabu or any other evidence seized cannot be used in any proceeding for any purpose.

There is suspicion from the camp of Lorenzo that shabu was intended to be planted if only to justify the arrest for rape.

IN FAIRNESS TO ALL, READ THE ATTACHED COPY
OF THE AFFIDAVIT OF THE POLICEMEN
