Enrile’s mug shots will be placed in the “Rogues Gallery” – police manual says
By Raïssa Robles
If I know my media colleagues, they are even now frantically cajoling sources to release to them Enrile’s mug shots.
Who will get them first?
It’s just a matter of time. Almost nothing can be kept secret in Manila, which is why foreign parachute journalists love to work here.
Already, someone has leaked the letter from Enrile’s law office, that asks the police not to take Enrile’s mug shots because there is no need for them “if the subject’s identity is established or well-recognized” and “if there is no related public safety concern.”
“Absent these three requirements… the taking of mug shots or their publication would be unnecessary and would just expose the subject to ‘cruel, degrading or inhuman’ punishment… even while he has not yet been convicted.”
Here is a portion of the letter of Enrile’s law office:
Nice try, Attorneys.
The Philippine National Police released a directive in 2011 setting down the SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) for booking suspects. Taking mug shots of suspects to be placed in the police’ “Rogues Gallery” is part of the Standard Operating Procedure or SOP.
The paper work for booking a suspect is quite tedious. Seven separate forms have to be filled up. I hope the reporters get copies of these forms, too:
As for the police, its spokesman told reporters to go to court if they wanted Enrile’s mug shots.
The police is understandably wary because Enrile is still a sitting senator who can ask allies in the Senate to block the PNP budget, even reduce it to zero.
So, the only way for Enrile’s mug shots to surface is through a court order or a leak from somewhere.
Good luck, reporters. Let the race begin.
Meanwhile, here’s how one of Enrile’s co-accused remembers him with fondness. The mug shots don’t matter.

Babaeng presong 90-anyos na, ininda ang hirap sa selda
And yet PNP Chief Superintendent Reuben Theodore Sindac keeps on insinuating that there is no special treatment against the PDAF scammers????
Law maker, law breaker!!!!!
In his book on Gen. Douglas MacArthur, William Manchester has described Manuel L. Quezon as a man who was “stronger in the loins than in the head.” In making his wife Imelda as ambassador plenipotentiary so she could jet-set abroad all the time (she even represented Pres. Marcos during the funeral of Russian president Chernenko) so he could make dalliances with local movie stars (Conjugal Dictatorship), Ferdinand Marcos was no less the same. With JPE’s present predicament, I now know where his strength lies.
The reasons for anti-mug shot is SO SMALL compared to the millions lost from peoples money.
Do these attorney ever thought of how painful it was for Filipino factory workers, who can’t even cope to make the ends meet??? WHAT REASONS DO THESE ATTORNEYS AT HAND TO SAVE THEIR CLIENT TO NOT GUILTY VERDICT??? YOU ATTORNEYS WHO SUPPORT THE PLUNDERERS HAVE COMMITTED THE SAME SINS IN THE EYES OF GOD ALMIGHTY>>>SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!<<>>>SHAME ON YOU!!!! GREAT CONSPIRATOR TO ROB THE PEOPLE. BEING AN ATORNEY TO THE PLUNDERER IS KAPAL NG MUKHA NYO!!!

Enrile has to answer all the charges against him especially on GRAFT/PLUNDER and we HOPE he can not ESCAPE this time…Nobody really like’s ENRILE nowadays BUT what iportance is the MUG SHOTS in his CASE? If HE turns 360 degrees and support PNOY and his anointed on 2016 , like Lacson DID ( balembeng dito Balembeng doon also Meriam ” tupak ” Santiago ) will the Mug Shots and Plunders cases ay iguguhit ng tadhana or iguguhit sa wala?
Tanda is a very shrewd and brilliant lawyer and at this early, he’s telling people that he could easily win his court case without sweat – his defense – there’s no direct or documentary evidence that he endorsed his PDAF to napoles’ non-existing NGOs, and no living souls are around (benhur lincluded) that could testify/prove that kickbacks were received/delivered to him out of his PDAF allocations.
His lawyer was long ago quoted as saying that enrile did not authorize gigi or evangelista to sign for and in his behalf on matters pertaining to questioned pork transactions.
drill down says
imo, if enrile is not convicted, it will not be because he and his lawyers are brilliant but that the court (judge and/or the prosecutors) was compromised/weak during trial.
also not a good thing that the administration keeps on extending courtesy after courtesy right now because this will set a lenient tone for the trial.

jorge bernas says
@ drill down,
Tama po kayo, Maaaring ang mga justices/procecutors ay may mga CASHunduan, whatever it is? Saka baka takot pa rin mga ito kay tanda, pogi, sexy at iba pa?
Ang suspension order para sa 3 itlog bakit wala pa rin hanggang ngayon?
Humihingi nang hospital arrest ang lawyers ni tanda dahil marami na daw iniindang sakit dahil sa katandaan? ang tanong bakit hindi pa nagresign si tanda sa senate? kong ayaw magresign dapat huwag din payagan ma ospital arrest kasi puwede pa pala umattend sa senate caucus/deliberation? sa dami nang hinihiling parang nakakaloko dahil sabi ni tanda noon ay ready na siyang pakulong at mamatay doon…
drill down says
would be interesting to know if anyone has searched their cellphone records, email messages, written messages, bank transactions. etc.
vander anievas says
let’s not lose hope.
truth will prevail.
the tj’s impeachment at first seemed to be going to the bin.
in a stroke of luck(for us), he faltered.
and like this scam, we deserve to find justice.
the funds were not illusion.
the funds were released thru their endorsements.
they knew very well how the funds were disbursed.
the criminals shall be convicted.
they all will end in jail.
Talagang suspense tayo sa mga nangyayari.
Madalas naiinis pa dahil palagi ang hingi nila ng pabor sa korte.
Bakit ganuon? Di ba dapat kung ano ang para sa ibang preso ganuon din ang sa kanila?
Pero palaging sinasabi na bigyan ng kurtesiya bigyan ng palugit dahil mga mambabatas sila.
Nasaan ang pagiging pantay-pantay ng batas?
@[email protected]…we’re still only in the theory of rule of law. Not yet in the application of the rule of law.
Justi-is muna. But until when?
@vander…in the Senate, how many are due for banging…16 or 24? In the Lower House? 90 ? or 110 ?
correction…in the Senate = 21 ?
Did you mean 180 degrees?
No offense meant.
Victin Luz says
I should say it must be 180 degrees but for the super balimbings they can turn more than that and not only 360 degrees even 540 degrees or greater depending upon whatever benefits they can accumulate most likely in an illegal and immoral ways….
The mug shot shows johnny seems to have schistosomiasis, or needs pregnancy test.

his police mugshot is most probably ugly, ang daming kulobot. like looking at a living dead. not flattering. it has to be airbrushed, smoothened here and there to make enrile appear more ‘human’. make him appear years younger. not like a scarecrow. nakakatakot! his skin is turgid and needs to be fluff up with a kilo of moisturizer. maybe apply rouge on his cheeks to give it color, kohl on his eyes to enliven them. his eyes droop like his sagging arms. his lips need gloss.
enrile is vain and dont want to be seen as he is, an ugly old man past his prime. releasing his mugshot will hurt his ego terribly.
since he choose to front court case head on, releasing the mugshot is part of the deal. he cannot just pick and choose. the negatives are still around. later, reprints can be made of the mugshots.
manuel buencamino says
Sen. Enrile and his chief of staff Gigi Reyes filed a joint motion with the Sandigan that they be held in the same cell. The court approved their request on condition that a video camera be installed in their cell.
The PNP leadership refused the Sandigan order saying, “We can’t force our policemen to watch them.”
But a friend said he would volunteer for the job.
He explained that Enrile was very angry at Gigi for being careless in her dealings with Napoles and he wanted to see for himself a 90 year old man giving tongue-lashings and finger-waggings to a fiftyish woman. :-) http://www.uniffors.com/?p=7462

if that will be the case, i can see it will become an instant reality show akin to PBB of abs-cbn.
people shall clamor for its showing and will surely become a blockbuster.
That photo of JPE and his “Lady Friend” reminds me of one of Homer Simpson’s epiphanies – that of the boob lady’s.
Sort of JPE reminding himself that he is after all really that retarded. Cue in – ” Take my hand, I’m a stranger in paradise”………….. you probably know the rest.
A serpent may shed his skin but he nonetheless remains a serpent. So, be afraid. Really afraid.
More power, Raissa.
One shot to remember by putting onto a mug…
More shots here…
He will make good his defense…of course…
tells of a
in the islands
up north maybe…
a love that always will be.
I like this much better
than the mug shots! Go! Take
all the mugs! I Go for the shots!

I pulled the following paragraphs from a blog I’m drafting, a preview of an article for late in the week entitled “A plunge into the darkened mind of Juan Ponce Enrile”. I muse about the court that drew Enrile’s case:
“If the court raffle had dealt Enrile’s panel that puffed up showman Revilla instead, no problem. They’d ignore Revilla’s antics, for he is always acting. He somewhat creepily appears to believe the role he has cast for himself, popular anti-hero, fighting for his devotion to his loving family and fans. Riding into scene with light saber agleam. He enters stage left, stage right, stage center . . . and never seems to leave.
If the court raffle had dealt Enrile’s panel the stalwart, puffed up son-of-a-plunderer Estrada, no problem. He is always posturing and playing for the crowd, quite a quotable guy, a bit of a political buffoon, rather like his father. An excellent Vice Presidential candidate, for sure, all hat, no cowboy. He’s no problem at all for the court.
But the panel got Enrile instead and they reacted as if they had been handed a deadly Philippine cobra, the most poisonous snake on the planet. Perhaps it was just the great man’s reputation speaking, but the cobra rose, head up, neck flattened, and hissed the warnings and threats that only Enrile can hiss. Just by being Enrile.”
I suppose the PNP felt the same way as the court.
Waiting to read the rest of your piece, Joe.
I have the same request as Raissa’s. Finish up and allow us to appreciate it. This comes with a please.
Joe America says
Thanks, vernon. It will be Friday’s article on my blog.
that cobra enrile is so old his venom is not potent anymore. got no juice, all dried up.
plus we got mongoose. that rat-like creature cobras are afraid of. mongoose are natural enemies of cobra, hypnotizing cobra with their back and forth movement, rhythmic to and fro movement, and then, striking just as cobras are lulled into the movement, bitten at the neck. yeah!
anyhow, if you want to capture a cobra, throw a towel at it, bludgeon it with a dos por dos, then eat it. better still, sell it at the pet shop. they’re in demand pets. shabu makers want them to guard their stash of shabu.
Joe America says
Where can I buy about a dozen mongooses (mongeese?) hereabouts? I figure that with a yard full of those I will never get any unwanted visitors. Cobras, cousins, crooks . . .
mongoose can be bought in the pet shops. not sure if they’re prohibited imports. I’ve seen one in the zoo though. tiny creature, unassuming, but got sharp teeth with equally sharp eyes, claws sharp like talons. immune to cobra’s venom.
poor cobras, they can be reduced to dancing, thanks to snake charmers. cobra enrile dancing? yes, he will, by public demand.
I like your choice of words, Joe, to create an impact. You’re even better than my idol, Gen. Douglas MacArthur!
I eagerly wait to read the rest of your write-up.
The Arrest and Booking Sheet (ABS) includes the fingerprints and pictures (mugshots) of the suspect or accused. A copy is always with the case folder held by the Investigator-on-Case until the case is filed in court. In the case of Enrile who was arrested by virtue of a warrant of arrest (WA), the arresting officer must return the WA to the court together with the ABS. In other words the ABS would become part of the records of the court on return of the WA by the PNP to the Sandiganbayan (SB).
The PNP SOP says that mugshots MAYBE provided the media in high profile cases. So that the media could only access the mugshots from PNP upon approval by the Chief, PNP. But the court records are always available to the parties of the case such as the Ombudsman and the lawyers of the complainant. In fact the lawyers on record, meaning those appearing in the case, could photocopy any or all the pages of the rollo or the records of the case. So that the mugshots of Enrile should not be a problem or an issue.
As I said, I’m waiting.
he, he, can anybody make a pretend mugshots of enrile with all his teeth missing, sucking on a pacifier?
enrile with hair like elvis presley complete with sideburns?
enrile with lipstick in shockingly bright red as is the fashion these days?
release the mugshots, or mugshots will be made not to enrile’s liking!
According to the PNP spokesman the warrant of arrest for Enrile had been returned to Sandiganbayan today. I think the waiting is over.
vander anievas says
do we filipinos have double standards or we don’t have any?
ordinary person is even handcuffed upon his arrest or surrender.
mug shot or none is never an issue.
now we’ll see who among our journos is/are the most resourceful.
i’m betting my pocket’s few bills for the winner of this race, as madame raissa asked to begin. hehehe.
IMO, it will be political suicide if ever his allies ridiculously reduce or block the PNP budget. And if they do that, they should never expect any security from the police force.
On the other hand, let them go ahead and do it. That way, people gets to know who’s depriving them their security, even if it isn’t really much to begin with.
tama, zamera. in those days in the 70s and 80s pwede nilang i-block ang budget ng PNP. nowadays, it’s near impossible to do. we shall certainly have breakdown of law and order. that would be fun, having policemen stalking senators and doing riding in tandem. we have to remember senators have families too, they got children and grandchildren. easy targets. easy to pick them off the streets. policemen refusing to do their duty because the senate refuse to do their ameliorated duty. yeah, let them try to cut off PNP budget. and PNP will surely release all the dirt they have on senators. release all the prisoners and let the senators deal with them.
Right. I was kinda even thinking of scenes similar to how Indira was taken down. The reasons may not be the same but they’re asking for trouble if security forces are thoroughly aggrieved, and more so due to political showmanship. What, the one whom my collected tax went to for pleasures and leisure will also block my source of income because he’s now in brink of becoming a jailbird? I’ll absolutely see red!
@zamera…why would lawmakers care to give enough money to PNP budget! They thought they’ll never be thrown into those ‘porky cells’!
Look at our Phil. Marines onboard RPS Sierra Madre…kalawang!
Yet, the PNP is doing its best to give them all the comfort and convenience for the big shots. Like it has enough more budget.
Yes, they do hard work with limited (reduced?) resources.
Payback time for these high end thieves! Unleash the hounds, uhm, the cockroaches!
