AFFIDAVIT OF WITNESS
I, MARY ANN I. CODINA, 40, married, resident of B64 L53 Canada Street, Harmony
Hills I, Muzon, City of San Jose del Monte, Bulacan, after having sworn in accordance with law,
do hereby depose and state THAT:
1.

I was present and personally saw that accused, PO2 Daniel Pantaleon,
committed the crime of homicide against the victim Eric Garner;

2.

Said act was done while PO2 Panteleon was in the act of arresting Mr. Eric
Garner on 17 July 2014 at about 4:30 pm or thereabouts at the Centris Mall in Quezon City;

3.

Said arrest was done in a manner in which the victim was held in a chokehold by
PO2 Panteleon and four (4) other police officers when Mr. Garner was trying to break up a fight
between a group of teenagers in the same area;
04.
I can clearly hear Mr. Garner telling the police officers that he cannot breathe a
number of times while laying facedown and in a chokehold position as he was being arrested by
the said police officers and held by PO2 Panteleon;
05.
I remember even telling the police officers, for goodness sakes, he is saying he
cant breathe, do something! but nobody paid me any attention;
06.
I was able to witness how Mr. Garner passed out and they still there was not any
attempt in trying to resucitate him by the same police officers;
07.
I saw him being loaded in an emergency van a few minutes later, still
unconscious;
08.
that I later heard on the news that Mr. Eric Garner died because of the the said
manner of arrest done by PO2 Daniel Panteleon and his co-officers;
I executed this affidavit to attest the truthfulness of the foregoing facts and to support the
filing of Criminal Cases against Daniel Pantaleon for violations of Article 249 of the Revised
Penal Code.
