Policeman Sought for Killing of Filipino-Norwegian

Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim has ordered the arrest of a rookie policeman who is being sought for the killing of a Filipino-Norwegian in Quezon City on July 31.
Lim directed the Manila Police District (MPD) to go ahead and file administrative proceedings against Police Officer 1 Harold Meneses who has not reported gone home or reported for work since he allegedly shot and killed 18-year-old Mikael Troy Rasay in a fight in front of a bar on Timog Avenue. The shooting took place early Sunday July 31 outside a bar in a suburb of Manila after the Norwegian teenager tried to stop a fight.
Meneses is assigned at the MPD Station 1. It’s been more than a week since Meneses has gone AWOL (absent without official leave).
“Even if he is located, they can’t arrest him anymore so the Quezon City police should file [criminal] charges against him so a warrant can [be issued for his arrest],” Lim told reporters in Filipino.
He urged the MPD to find Meneses, charge him administratively and turn him over to the Quezon City police where the complaint against him is lodged.
