The Philippine National Police’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) chief said Thursday he has relieved 13 officers of the National Capital Region (NCR) department pending an investigation into allegations that they robbed and extorted a group of Chinese nationals. And more recently Filipino-Chinese businessmen.

CIDG Chief Constable Brig. Gen. Romeo Caramat Jr. said the 13 included CIDG-NCR Chief Police Colonel Hansel Marantan, who also handed in his resignation out of command responsibility, “possibly so as not to interfere with the investigation of allegations against his staff.”

Caramat ordered the rescue of Marantan, two other senior officials and 10 non-commissioned officers after hearing complaints from Paranaque city businessmen about robbery and extortion.

“Our investigative unit is looking into this matter,” Calamat said.

PNP Deputy Chief of Administration Police Lieutenant General Rhodel Sermonia said that a group of Chinese nationals visited his office on March 13 to question the police operation carried out by the CIDG-NCR.

He said the Chinese described how a team of CIDG agents showed up at their home while they were playing mahjong, allegedly in response to complaints from neighbors that they were noisy.

“They started arresting those people, and then allegedly, their crime was illegal gambling,” Sermonia told reporters.

Watches, Jewelry

According to the complainant, the police allegedly confiscated two expensive watches — a Patek Philippe and a Richard Mille — among other expensive jewelry, a Louis Vuitton bag and a vault containing P3 million in cash.

Thirteen Chinese nationals were arrested and taken to the CIDG-NCR headquarters in Camp Crame, Sermonia said, “according to the complainants, in exchange for their freedom, they gave money to our agents.”

He told reporters that CIDG-NCR agents allegedly extorted P10 million from the group.

Police Colonel Jean Fajardo, spokesman for the PNP, said Marantan had asked for his administrative dismissal to give way to the ongoing investigation.


The victim made no formal complaints against CIDG-NCR personnel.

“The head of the PNP immediately told me to conduct a thorough investigation and said that if they committed a breach, they would be subject to administrative and criminal charges,” Sermonia said.

past controversies

Marantan has previously been involved in a number of contentious shootouts, including a 2013 massacre in Atimonan, Quezon province that killed 13 people.

Marantan was the deputy intelligence chief of the Calabarzon Regional Police when he led a police operation, backed by soldiers, against alleged “jueteng” operator Vic Siman, who was killed on January 6, 2013.

Shootout or misfire?

According to Malantan, Seaman’s group opened fire on government troops when they were stopped at the checkpoint.

Police said it was a shootout, but the NBI said all indications were that the operation was a misfire targeting Siman.

In February 2010, Malantan, then captain of the 415th Provincial Police Mobile Brigade, was involved in the deaths of eight suspected kidnappers.

Like the firefight in Atimonan, clashes also took place at a checkpoint manned by soldiers and Army soldiers in Malantan, Candelaria town, Quezon.

He was also involved in another police operation against a robbery gang in the city of Parañaque in December 2008, which left 16 dead, including a migrant worker and his 7-year-old daughter who were caught in an exchange of fire.

In November 2005, Marantan was criminally charged for an alleged confrontation between Highway Patrol agents and an alleged Valle Verde car theft ring. Four rich children were killed.
