Senate to subpoena police, airport security that snubbed investigation into Lozada abduction

Tuesday next week will definitely keep people glued to their TVs and radios as members of the police, airport security and Presidential Security group are called to the Senate.

Senate President Manuel Villar this afternoon signed 18 subpoena for 18 officials of the Philippine National Police and the Airport Security Group that snubbed the Senate's invitation to appear at the NBN hearing to answer questions regarding whistleblower Jun Lozada's alleged abduction.

Among the 18 summoned to appear before the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee are Brigadier General Angel Atutubo (Assistant General for Airport Security), Police Superintendent Romeo Hilomen (Chief of Police Security and Protection Office), Chief Supt. Atilano Morada (Chief of the Aviation Security Group) and SPO4 Rodolfo Valeroso (PNP ASG).

Also issued subpoena were members of the Presidential Security Group. It will be remembered that during a visit of Senators to the NAIA last week, an entry in a security guard log book was discovered and it revealed that members of the Presidential Secrity Group had been part of a group that fetched and allegedly detained Lozada.

Villar threatened that the Senate would issue arrest orders if the people named in the subpoena don't appear before the Blue Ribbon committee on Monday.

So, if they don't appear at the Senate, will there be a man hunt for these men in uniform?
