Korean detainee’s jail guards in hot water

The Bureau of Immigration has filed criminal charges against two of its jail guards in connection with the escape on Christmas Eve of a South Korean detainee wanted for cheating in a casino in his country.

Immigration Commissioner Ricardo David Jr. said charges of infidelity in the custody of a prisoner had been filed before the Taguig City prosecutor’s office against jail guards Eduardo Dulay and Noel Acedillo.

David placed Dulay, a regular employee, under preventive suspension for 90 days and terminated Acedillo’s services as a BI confidential agent.

The detainee, Kim Tae Dong, escaped from the St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City in Taguig on Dec. 24 where he was confined and guarded by Dulay and Acedillo.

Kim accrued P2.2 million in hospital fees for which the BI is being dunned.

According to lawyer Ma. Antonette Mangrobang, acting intelligence chief, Dulay and Acedillo could face a jail term of six months to six years if convicted.

Mangrobang said that in their explanation, Dulay and Acedillo claimed that Kim disappeared after the Korean enticed them to eat food and drink beers that caused them to fall asleep inside the hospital room. Jerome Aning

    Enticed to eat and drink beer in a hospital room?! Where would the detainee find the time and opportunity to purchase the food and drink these two bottom-feeders say they were “enticed” with?

    Cut to the chase, and, hang these two for dereliction of duty. And, facilitating, aiding, abetting in the escape of a prisoner in their conniving hands. Examples os justice making it unworthy for scum, like these two, to turn traitor is very much needed in the Philippines. It must not only be in the ranks of arroyo(PWE) and corona(PWE) that heads must roll (take that literslly or figuratively; Your choice).

    This Dulay and Acedillo should also be charged criminally, perhaps with aiding and abetting a fugitive.
