Cop who claimed EJKs recants tale

By: Hannah L. Torregoza

The Senate Committee on Public Order and Dangerous Drugs has directed the Philippine National Police to “produce” SPO1 Vincent Tacorda who earlier resigned from the service after claiming that policemen are behind extrajudicial killings against drug suspects.

At the resumption of the committee’s investigation into the spate of killings of teenage drug suspects in the Duterte administration’s war on drugs, Sen. Panfilo “Ping” M. Lacson said Tacorda has recanted his statement despite issuing an affidavit regarding the corruption and involvement in illegal activities of several ranking police officials in Catandanues.
