Ocon cites contribution of Amora to Oro’s peace and order

Wants to give him recognition, honor for bravery, accomplishments

COUNCILOR Zaldy O. Ocon on Monday pushed for a passage of a resolution recognizing and honoring the bravery of the late Senior Superintendent Eleuterio “Dodong” Amora in protecting the peace and order of the city during his time of police service in the ‘90s.

During the regular session presided over by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy, the councilor manifested his intention to give the former police officer recognition for his incomparable contribution to the attainment of peace and order during the time of the late City Mayor Pablo Magtajas.

According to Ocon, Amora was a known nemesis of the lawless and probably the most feared police officer during his stint at the city’s police force some 30 to 40 years ago.

He rose to prominence after his 1984 gunfight with New People’s Army (NPA) hitmen near the fruit stand in Divisoria where he was able to put down a rebel. He survived after sustaining several gunshots himself, Ocon further recalled.

“Kita tanan nasayod kung unsa siya ka-aktibo sa pagpanalipod sa atong dakbayan. Nakatagamtam kita sa kalinaw ug kahusay tungod sa dako nga contribution sa iyang pagkapulis dinhi sa atong syudad,” the councilor cited.

Ocon said the late former police officer, together with his “Aguila” group, has more than a dozen accomplishments to support his request.

The matter was referred to the committee on tourism chaired by

Councilor Jay R. Pascual for appropriate and action.
