Police Officers under investigation
Taguig City Police Station is now under fire for the death of two suspects, which should have been facing another criminal rap for the death of Nick Russel Oniot. Although Senior Inspector Ruther Saquilayan denies allegations, they are still looking forward to reopen the case to determine the real cause of the suspect's death.

The mother of Reynaldo indicated that there are visible marks that were seen in his neck area, which is a clear indication that he was strangulated. Even if the senior inspector denies allegations, he will apprehend the police personnel who was on duty during the time incident and could face administrative charges. The mother and the family members are already taking legal steps to fight for Reynaldo's unfortunate demise inside the police station.
Saquilayan indicated that the cell where the two suspects were being held is only good for 50 inmates. But due to an increasing number of criminal offenders, the number of arrested individuals are high enough to increase the number of inmates per cell to at least 200 individuals, which is 400% higher. Being a criminal offender is a tough life, you will prepare yourself to be in a hellish environment inside the incarceration facility while awaiting the verdict of your trial.
In addition, the case of Reynaldo Clave is not the first time that happened in Taguig City Police Station. Inmates detained in the Police Station also suffered similar incidents from the past. There are previous inmates who died from suffocation because the space is too small and the breathable air inside the prison is unbearable.
