More police arrested in chili-torture scandal
MANILA | Police said Thursday they have detained six more officers in a widening investigation into the mistreatment of police recruits who were allegedly force-fed and rubbed with hot chilies.
A total of 14 police officers are now in custody, and their two superior officers are under investigation, National Police Chief Raul Bacalzo said.
Eight police officers were arrested on Monday after Loretta Ann Rosales , chief of the Commission on Human Rights, alerted the Interior Ministry to two videos she said showed a group of naked and blindfolded police recruits.
