Girl, 18, sues 5 SBMA cops

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT – An 18-year-old girl accused five policemen from the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority of robbing and sexually harassing her on June 10, after a fight with her boyfriend in one of the restaurants here.

In her complaint filed with the Olongapo City prosecutor’s office, the girl also charged the five policemen with extortion, acts of lasciviousness and grave misconduct.

The Inquirer learned about the attack on the girl only this week. The SBMA had been keeping the incident away from the media until the girl filed a complaint with the prosecutor’s office early this month.

In her complaint, the girl said she left the Magic Lagoon restaurant here on June 10 after a misunderstanding with her boyfriend.

As she was walking toward the freeport’s main gate at around 2 a.m., the five policemen accosted her. When they asked for her identification, they allegedly handcuffed her, took P8,000 of her money, forcibly removed her clothes, and sexually molested her.

An employee of Magic Lagoon said he found the girl sitting near the road at about 3 a.m., crying and looking dazed. By Robert Gonzaga - Philippine Daily Inquirer

  • Sad. Now my question is this, are those in SBMA going to blame the American military for this one? Seems to me that the SBMA police are up to thier old tricks again.

    I wonder if in fact they did not set up the Marine a few years back.
