These bars were not closed and the very few dancers with permits were allowed to continue dancing. 80 girls with no ID taken. Fine P1000 each. P80,000 pretty good income for barangay for a "non-raid"
05-Jun-2014Honey Ko's Raided about 1730 by personnel from Camp Olivas. Staff taken including 2 momasans. Men of the Regional Special Operations Group based at Camp Olivas, the regional police headquarters in Pampanga, are facing extortion charges for allegedly demanding P1 million from the owner. Chief Inspector Heryl Bruno, provincial chief of the CIDG, said he also ordered an investigation as the RSOG operatives allegedly identified themselves as CIDG members. Bruno said the owner of Honey Ko’s bar on Fields Avenue here has filed extortion charges against the RSOG men before the city prosecutor’s office. The police officers though have yet to be named pending their identification by the complainant and witnesses, although they definitely belong to the RSOG, he added. “The report is that the erring cops had asked the owner for P1 million so that charges would not be pursued against him,” Bruno said. The RSOG men, allegedly identifying themselves as CIDG. Reopened 21 Jul
