MANILA — Three policemen were found guilty of murder over the death of 17-year-old Kian Delos Santos in an anti-drug operation in 2017.

The trio, PO3 Arnel Oares, PO1 Jeremias Pereda and PO1 Jerwin Cruz, however were found not guilty of planting evidence.

Police had accused the teenager of being a courier for illegal drugs, which his family denied.
