Ex-police officer from PH tagged as ‘contract killer’ by PNP arrested in Abu Dhabi


- Advertisment -

A former police officer from the Philippines hiding for years in Abu Dhabi has been finally arrested during a sting operation in the capital. 

The former police officer, Ruben Baliong, is tagged as a notorious ‘contract killer’ by the Philippine National Police. According to a The Filipino Times report, Baliong was wanted for four counts of murder with three pending warrants of arrest, which were issued by the Caloocan Regional Trial Court and another by a Paranaque court for cases of murder and physical injuries. 

Prior to his arrest, the former police officer was working as a security officer since January 2019. 

The PNP has reportedly coordinated with the Philippine Centre on Transnational Crime, Interpol National Central Bureau of Investigation (NBI). 

“The subject was arrested by Abu Dhabi Police and turned over to our custody on February 3, 2021,” PNP Integrity Monitoring and Enforcement Group Chief Col. Thomas Frias Jr., said. 

Baliong was turned over to Philippine operatives at the Abu Dhabi International Airport last March 6 and was flown back to Manila on Monday, March 6.
