Former Police Colonel Caesar Mancao said he will help promote the Philippines as a number one tourist destination by having his pictures taken all over the country. The fugitive Police Officer issued this sarcastic statement after successfully escaping his jail cell at the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) many weeks ago.
The National Bureau of Investigation and the Philippine National Police (PNP) have already launched a massive manhunt for the former law enforcer but has so far failed to find and arrest him. Caesar Mancao was implicated in the Dacer-Corbito Double Murder Case but has turned witness against former PNP Chief and now Senator Panfilo Lacson and former President Joseph Estrada.
The former cop was extradited from the US by the Arroyo Administration and was convinced to become a state witness against Sen. Lacson and former Pres. Joseph Estrada whom he pointed out as the masterminds of the double murder case. Mancao was under the Government’s Witness Protection Program during the Gloria Arroyo Administration but he was scheduled to be transferred to the City Jail a few weeks ago.
Mancao said he will be assassinated once he is removed from NBI custody and asked the court to defer his transfer but it was denied. It was this reason that he escaped his NBI detention. He also accused Sen. Panfilo Lacson of harassing him and that his transfer to the city jail was due to the connection of the Senator to the Department of Justice (DOJ) and to Pres. Noynoy Aquino.
So now, Mancao is scot-free and having a field day enjoying the beautiful sights of the Philippine countryside. He even joked that he will continue posting his pictures taken all over the country to help promote the Philippines as the best tourist destination. Mancao even borrowed the Department of Tourism’s slogan that says “It’s more fun in the Philippines!”
I guess Col. Caesar Mancao should enjoy his temporary freedom. No matter how good he is at eluding his captors, the time will come that his luck will finally run out. When that time comes, Mancao will either end up in jail again or get himself killed in some dark alley... Yes, “It’s more fun in the Philippines!” Until the shit hits the fan….
