According to Senior Supt. Samuel Gadingan, a Police Officer 3 Filomeno Toronio died of cardiac arrest while he was assigned with another police unit in Mati City in Davao Oriental.
As of the moment, several discrepancies have been found in Duterte’s list. He however, said that he claims responsibility for it.
“Any mistake of the military and the police dito, ako yung tagasalo. I ordered the listing, revalidation, I am the one reading it and I am the sole person responsible for the same," he said. MJM
