As you may recall, yesterday Police issued information surrounding the Ramon Cervantes Senior homicide saying that police investigation has proven so far that no other party apart from wanted person Manuel Castillo and his accomplices are responsible for his murder and that of Sonia Abac. This wasn’t the only information shared, as police stated that the case has been closed, adding that one of their own had been placed on disciplinary charges. He is P.C. 743 Javier Alvarez who, according to the report, apparently sold a police service handcuff to wanted fugitive Manuel Castillo and as a result has been placed on disciplinary charges for two counts for Prejudice to Good Order and Discipline and has been interdicted from duty since 26th September, 2014. The case, said the family, cannot be closed since there is still much that needs to be investigated. The move, said Ramon Cervantes Junior has only served to further mar the image of the Police.

“We need to start cleansing our souls as a nation and start to come clean and clear with the people and you know when they said they would close the case we were very dismayed. I think the Police either were forced into it or they didn’t realize that it has done them more damage, more damage to their credibility and that it why it is sad…because they have damaged their own credibility. What are the reasons to close the case so soon after a press conference and a revealing tape?”


Furthermore, Cervantes adds that the police’s actions have only made room for more speculations about the case and what the department is doing to bring those involved to justice.

“It just starts the perception of why they would close the case it is all kinds of reasons, could it be that they know that there is the evidence out there and that is why the closed the gates on it? Could be that they whoever they are were caught and now they are doing anything and everything possible within their power given to them by the people to cover it up for the protection of people in high places? It just opens it to questions and trying to close the case they close one door but open many more to many more questions.”


Police are yet to make a statement about receiving the recording.
