IS Chief Insp. Musa Amiyong on his way back to Western Visayas?

This question percolated in the media when a PNP special order surfaced yesterday directing the reassignment of Amiyong, former Iloilo City police intelligence czar, to Region 6.

The supposed special order issued this month was signed by police Director Abner Cabalquinto, head of the PNP Directorate for Personnel and Records Management.

The special order suspended the assignment of Amiyong to the Personnel Holding and Accounting Unit (PHAU) in Camp Crame.

From Camp Crame, Amiyong was detailed to the Police Regional Office (PRO-6) in Camp Martin Delgado in Iloilo City.

Amiyong was relieved from the Iloilo City Police Office as intelligence section chief effective July 27, 2009 through Special Order No. 2384. He was then ordered to report to PHAU.

PRO-6 Director Isagani Cuevas has yet to confirm or deny Amiyong’s reassignment to Western Visayas.

Amiyong was transferred from Iloilo City upon recommendation of the PNP Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Force (AIDSOTF) headed by Police Director Raul Bacalzo.

Reports from the police community said Amiyong was tagged in the death of PO1 Frederick Capasao, a former member of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, in 2007.

Amiyong was also dragged in the alleged pilferage of fuel used by contractors of the Iloilo Flood Control Project. He was also accused of shooting two youngsters in General Luna Street, Iloilo City last August 13, 2008.

Amiyong had denied all the charges against him.

Sources from the Iloilo City Hall and PRO-6 said a powerful politician moved for Amiyong’s return to Region 6 by threatening to hold the PNP budget next year.

Amiyong has been linked to the group of Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Raul Gonzalez Sr.

But Gonzalez said Amiyong only provided security assessments and recommendations.
