Allain Bandiola, the cyclist who got involved in a traffic altercation along Welcome Rotonda said that the members of the Quezon City Police Department (QCPD) didn’t put ex-cop Wilfredo Gonzales under their custody because of a lack of evidence.
During the senate hearing led by Senator Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa on September 5, Bandiola shared that he was told by an officer from QCPD that they could not apprehend Gonzales because they didn’t see the weapon used by the former cop against him.
“Sabi ni Sir Adan, ‘Hindi namin puwedeng arestuhin si Ginoong Gonzales, wala naman kaming nakitang baril’ Ganito na lang, sabi niya, tatawag tayo sa traffic sector para maayos ‘to at magawan ng incident report,” said Bandiola.
Dela Rosa said that Bandiola should insisted that Gonzales was armed during the incident.
“Dapat sinumbong mo, may baril ‘yan, kinasahan ako,” the lawmaker said.
However, Bandiola said that he insisted it to the members of QCPD, but they said that they were not allowed to put the ex-cop under their custody without further explanation.
He was also told by the cops not to tap the vehicle of other people to avoid getting in trouble.
The certain ‘Adan’ was not present during the hearing.
Bandiola also confirmed that he talked with Gonzales to settle the issue.
