New security measures for Ayala Alabang Village proposed in relation to recent drug raids

The recent drug raids and apprehension of suspects inside Ayala Alabang is now a hot topic of discussion with regards to local community security and the war against illegal substances. In relation to this, new security measures have been proposed for Ayala Alabang Village and the issue has caught the attention of Muntinlupa City Mayor Ruffy Biazon, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.  

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon said new security measures were proposed for the exclusive Ayala Alabang Village after the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) seized 20 kilos of suspected shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) worth P136 million during a raid on a house used as a drug laboratory.

The PDEA-led raid on Nov. 18 targeted a house on Mabolo Street in Ayala Alabang Village, home to the rich and famous.

PDEA identified the suspects as Aurelien Cythere, 41, a resident at the target address, and Mark Anthony Sarayot, 42, businessman, a resident of Barangay Ugong, Pasig.

Biazon said he convened a dialogue with officials of Barangay Ayala Alabang and Ayala Alabang Village Association (AAVA) to discuss what measures to take to prevent any house in the posh village from being used for illegal drugs and other crimes.

In 2018, the PDEA and other government agencies declared Barangay Ayala Alabang, which covers the Ayala Alabang Village, as a drug-cleared, the first barangay in Muntinlupa to receive the declaration.

However, subsequent police operations in recent years yielded illegal drugs in the village.

Biazon said security is tight in Ayala Alabang Village and its residents value privacy. However, he said, the privacy aspect is being used by people to commit illegal acts and hide from authorities.

He said the barangay, village association and himself proposed several measures to prevent illegal drugs in the village.

One of these is requiring tenants, who rent houses in Ayala Alabang, to register so they can be identified.

Another is to have an agreement between Barangay Ayala Alabang, AAVA and law enforcement agencies to exchange intelligence information, which is the key to catching the culprits, said Biazon.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what is your reaction to this recent development? Do you suspect that a household within your local community has been secretly turned into a laboratory for illegal drugs? What kind of new security measures do you think the authorities will come up with?

Ten men pretending to be NBI agents arrested inside Ayala Alabang Village for attempted robbery, serious illegal detention and usurpation of authority

Not so long after the in-village drug-related raids happened, Ayala Alabang Village is back in the news again as a result of a group of ten men who entered the village, went to a certain residence and attempted to rob a foreign resident while pretending to be agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), according to a Manila Bulletin news report. The suspects have since been arrested and will be charged.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

Ten men posing as National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents were arrested for serious illegal detention and attempted robbery charges filed by a resident of the exclusive Ayala Alabang Village in Muntinlupa on Nov. 22.

Brig. Gen. Kirby John Kraft, Southern Police District (SPD), said the 10 suspects are also facing charges of usurpation of authority and trespass to dwelling.

The arrested suspects were identified as David Tan Liao, 46, travel agency agent; Fritz Ian Petil Cafino, 33, and Ronaldo Cadalena Zuniega, 33, both utility personnel of Long-Shang Travel Agency; Andy Ko Sy, 50 driver and translator; Erlindo Cuago Auditor, 48, tricycle driver; Roderick Segundo Ensano, 48, taxi driver; Bienvinido Biolango Vildad Jr., 47, driver; Ernesto Solamillo Baay, 45, driver; Roberto Daradar Pacis, 65, messenger; and Jonathan Caliwag Salud, 46, immigration officer.

The police are looking for Jose Romel Herbolingo Congreso, 50, and four other unidentified suspects.

According to the police, the detention and attempted robbery happened at about 9 a.m. inside the village.

The suspects, who were on board two vehicles, entered the Madrigal Gate of Ayala Alabang Village. They informed the village guards that they would be visiting friends residing on Maria Cristina Street.

Once inside the village, suspects went to the house of victim Weijian Pan, 33, a Chinese businessman, at Country Club Drive.

Introducing themselves as NBI agents, the suspects allegedly threatened Erick Cai, 19, a Chinese interpreter, and forcibly opened the gate.

After entering the house, suspect Liao approached the victim and demanded P40 million in exchange for his liberty. The suspects detained the victim until 7 p.m.

Another victim, Juvanie Baterna Lapinig, 30, Pan’s personal driver, was able to call the village security guards and asked for help. The security guards immediately responded to the call leading to the arrest of the suspects.

Kraft thanked the security guards for their prompt response and arrest of the suspects.

This recent development is very disturbing. Could you just imagine how a group with bad intentions could enter your village and then attempt a robbery inside while pretending to be agents of authority? The usurpation of authority is alone a very serious topic that needs to be discussed in the local community as criminals can pretend to be authority personnel members and use their fake authority to victimize people.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What do you think about this recent development? Does this news make you feel uneasy about the security of your home and your village? If ever you get approached by a group of people who claim they are agents of authorities (examples: police, the military, health department), what would you do to find out if they are telling the truth?

Drug-related raids inside Ayala Alabang Village

Recently, over P100 million worth of illegal drugs were found by elements of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) and a few suspects were arrested in Muntinlupa City, specifically inside Ayala Alabang Village according to a news report by GMA Network. The law enforcers were armed with search warrants.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the GMA news report. Some parts in boldface…

Authorities on Friday seized around P149.6 million worth of illegal drugs during a raid in an alleged shabu laboratory in Muntinlupa, according to a report of Bam Alegre on GMA News’ Unang Balita,

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) at 12:30 a.m. served search warrants in two houses in Ayala-Alabang Village which were allegedly used as improvised shabu laboratory, PDEA said in a report.

At the first house, authorities arrested French national Aurelien Cythere, supposedly the “chemist,” and Filipino Mark Anthony Sarayot.

Trays filled with suspected shabu and equipment for its production were found inside the house, according to PDEA.

Authorities seized 20 kilograms of suspected shabu with a street value of around P136 million.

At a nearby house, another suspect identified as Canadian-Iranian Ariana Golisorkhi was also arrested.

Two packs of suspected shabu were found inside the house, according to authorities. There was no foul smell of chemicals in the area because the suspects used machines with new technology in cooking illegal drugs.

The two houses are being rented for around P300,000 and P70,000 per month, PDEA said.

PDEA officer-in-charge Assistant Secretary Gregorio Pimentel said the laboratory is linked to international drug syndicates.

The above article ended stating that the arrested suspects will be charged for violating Republic Act Number 9165 (Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002). For added insight, watch below the related news video.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What do you think about this recent development? Are you convinced that international drug syndicates could still be running makeshift laboratories of illegal drugs here in the Philippines?

Muntinlupa City’s recipients of 2nd booster shots more than double

In the progressive city of Muntinlupa, the number of patients who received 2nd booster shots for COVID-19 had more than doubled over the initial count, according to a Manila Bulletin news report. Specifically speaking, the 2nd booster shots recipients jumped from over 1,400 to more than 3,000.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin report. Some parts in boldface…

The number of people who have received their second booster shot in Muntinlupa City has increased to more than 3,400.

Data from the City Health Office (CHO) showed that as of May 21, a total of 3,425 individuals got their second booster shot or fourth dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

This is an increase of 2,002 individuals or 140.6 percent from 1,423 who were given the fourth dose as of May 21.

Of the 3,425, Barangay Putatan posted the highest number of recipients with 688 followed by Ayala Alabang with 606; Alabang, 377; Cupang, 348; Tunasan, 315; Poblacion, 216; Sucat, 177; Bayanan, 121; Buli, 25; and 552 unclassified.

Among the 12-to-17-year-old population in Muntinlupa, 40,157 have been fully vaccinated or 71.08 percent of the total population of 56,499.

The CHO also reported that 15,085 minors aged five to 11 are now fully vaccinated or 22.12 percent of the total population of 68,198.

To date, 498,153 individuals in Muntinlupa are fully vaccinated, or 112.57 percent of the target population of 442,517. The target population is 80 percent of the total population of 553,146.

The Department of Health (DOH) earlier allowed the giving of the second booster shots using the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines four months after the first booster shot to immunocompromised individuals, frontline health workers (A1) aged 18 and above, and senior citizens (A2) aged 60 and above.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what can you say about the rise of patients who received their 2nd booster shots? Do you believe that the COVID-19 vaccination and boosting have made a solid impact on making people more resistant from COVID-19? Do the news about the highly infectious Omicron sub-variant in our country compel you to get fully vaccinated or boosted? Do you think that the anti-vaccine fanatics movement in our country are deceiving people from getting immunized? Did you notice that anti-vaccine believers often claim they are “not anti-vaccine” and still go on to condemn vaccinations and attack the local authorities behind vaccination efforts?
