Testimony of cop’s wife in Jee Ick Joo’s death junked

The wife of the policeman who allegedly strangled to death Korean and Hanjin executive Jee Ick Joo is not among those invited to testify at the Senate investigation on Thursday.

Senate Committee on Public Order and Dangerous Drugs Chairman Panfilo Lacson is wary of her story.

Jinky, the wife of SPO3 Ricky Sta. Isabel, had said she has a video tape, transcripts of cellphone conversation and pictures from a CCTV that will supposedly absolve her husband from the murder case.

But Lacson says, Jinky’s narration is hearsay and the phone conversation may not be acceptable as evidence as it constitutes a wiretapped material.

Jinky claimed Ricky’s superior, Anti-Illegal Drugs Group team leader Superintendent Raphael Dumlao, was trying to convince her husband to give a testimony that will cover up Dumlao’s alleged role in the Jee’s death in October last year inside Camp Crame.  

Meanwhile, PNP Chief Ronald dela Rosa says, all of the cops implicated in the case will face prosecution, including Dumlao.

He adds, the hunt for retired cop Gerardo Santiago, who owns the the funeral parlor where Jee was cremated, continues.

Santiago had allegedly fled to Canada.
