Doctors, security guards on Jolo Revilla’s shooting incident facing charges

Sr. Supt. Bartolome C. Tobias, Public Information Office Chief of the Philippine National Police said in a press briefing at PNP Headquarters in Camp Crame on Tuesday that administrative charges have been filed against security guards and doctors of Asian Hospital and Medical Center in Muntinlupa City in line of Cavite Vice-Governor Jolo Revilla’s shooting incident last February 28.

The charges were filed before Security and Investigation Agencies against Alarm and Security and Investigation Inc. and Bulldog Security. The guards were identified as Julius Baniago, Dondon Roslinda, and Frobel Aloro of the Asian Hospital and Medical Center and Jose Torrendon, a security officer of Ayala-Alabang Village in Muntinlupa City.

Criminal charges will also be filed against security guards including their agencies for obstruction of justice and for not immediately reporting the shooting incident to the police.

“The case involving the security guards, the Muntinlupa Police has already completed their investigation and will file a criminal case against them this week,” Tobias said.

Vice-Governor Revilla’s attending physicians namely Dr. Edgar Mendiola, Dr. Rosita Bierneas, and Dr. Eden Lasala of Asian Hospital will face administrative charges before the Professional Regulatory Commission for violating Executive Order 212. The physicians reportedly denied the admission of the Cavite Vice Governor in the said hospital.

The PNP is also further investigating Jolo Revilla for possible violation of handling the Glock caliber .40 gun issued to him by Cavite government.
