BRIG. Gen. Redrico Maranan, Quezon City Police District (QCPD) director, said the firearm used by Lt. Col. Mark Julio Abong in front of a restobar in Quezon City has an expired license.

It can be recalled that Abong assaulted a server at a bar in Quezon City and harassed one of the customers outside the establishment by firing his gun twice last November 26.

Maranan said records from the Firearms and Explosives Office (FEO) that the firearm license of Abong’s Glock 40 pistol has expired in 2019.

The police official also said they are seeking the revocation of Abong’s license to own and possess firearm (LTOPF) at the FEO.

If his LTOPF is revoked, Maranan said Abong has to surrender the other firearms registered in his name.

Abong is still detained at the QCPD’s criminal investigation and detection unit (CIDU) on several criminal complaints filed against him before the city prosecutor’s office.

Maranan said the bar server and manager dropped their physical injury and slander by deed complaints against Abong after settling their conflict on Monday.

Maranan said the resolution on Abong’s bail petition will be released November 29 or 30.
