An official of the Negros Occidental Teachers Federation (NOTF) denied that the robbery of its liaison officer and two employees was an “inside job” or “hold-up me” incident.
Romeo Camporaso, NOTF public information officer, said Friday, May 27, that there was even a commotion and the victims immediately asked for help from the security personnel and police who were at the Negros First CyberCentre.
The riding-in-tandem suspects, as seen from the vehicle’s dash camera, carted away more than P600,000 from the victims who had just withdrawn the money from a nearby bank. They pointed a gun at the victims who were in the vehicle parked at the parking lot.
Camporaso said they have closed-circuit television footage showing the suspects were following the victims’ vehicle from their office.
The police said it is possible that the robbery was an “inside job” or “hold-up me” incident since the suspects and victims arrived at the CyberCentre almost at the same time.*
