Statement from Greenhills Center management on the hstage taking incident today.
Mall management says it will look into allegations made by the hstage taker vs security agency officials who allegedly take bribes from tenants to disregard policies. Via Ralf Rivas.
“The hstage-taking situation at Greenhills Mall
perpetrated by a former security guard of a
security agency has been resolved with the help of San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora and the
Philippine National Police.
The hstage taker on Monday morning
forced himself into the shopping mall, shooting one of the security guards before capturing employees of Greenhills Mall.
The injured guard was rushed to a nearby hospital and is now in stable condition.
The other hstages are now safe in police custody
and are being debriefed. All the necessary
assistance are being extended to them.
Management continues to cooperate with
authorities and will have a post-incident
assessment with the police to avoid a repeat of this unfortunate situation.
Management will also look into allegations made by the hstage taker against security agency officials who allegedly take bribes from tenants to disregard shopping mall policies.
To tenants and loyal patrons of Greenhills Mall,
please bear with us as Management moves
deliberately towards the resumption of normal
shopping mall operations.
Management will share more information as we get them. We ask the public to avoid sharing online unconfirmed information and refer to authorities.”
