THE former intelligence chief of Iloilo City said he is willing to be shot by a firing squad if proven that he has a hand in the death of a fellow police officer.

C/Insp. Musa Amiyong, former intelligence section head of Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO), denied any involvement in the killing of PO2 Frederick Capasao.

Capasao, a former member of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) was gunned down in front of his house in October 2007.

Capasao’s death is being linked to his anti illegal drugs operations which led to the arrest of some suspected drug traders.

A PNP intelligence report which surfaced this year pointed to some police officers who were involved in Capasao’s death.

Amiyong’s relief was recommended by the Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Force (AIDSOTF) in Camp Crame.

Amiyong, however, said he does not know Capasao nor does he have any involvement in the latter’s death.

Amiyong said cases could have been filed against him if he was involved in the case.

“No one came to investigate me on this. If the allegations against me are true, they could have filed cases so I can undergo due process before being judged. If there is truth to that, I am willing to be shot by a firing squad,” Amiyong said.

Amiyong said Capasao’s case is not the basis for his relief to Metro Manila.

He also clarified his supposed close links to Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Raul Gonzalez Sr.

Amiyong said he only provided intelligence reports and threat assessments to Gonzalez.

“Maybe some of my fellow officers and politicians want me out of the ICPO,” he added.
