Kuratong Baleleng Case

robbery

❌LIE: “Lacson headed the alleged rubout of Kuratong Baleleng gang members in 1995.”

✔️TRUTH:

1. Lacson could not have headed the operation. At the time, he headed the Presidential Anti-Crime Commission’s Task Force Habagat, which was part of a bigger composite team formed to neutralize the syndicate that pulled off bank robberies and kidnapping in Metro Manila.

2. The case was dismissed in 1999. It was “reopened” in March 2001 during the Arroyo administration, but a Quezon City court dismissed the multiple murder charges in 2003. No less than the Supreme Court affirmed the dismissal of the case in November 2012.
