Palace won’t tolerate cops’ violations amid COVID crisis

first_imgMANILA – Malacañang vowed not to turn a blind eye on the violations being committed by police officers while they perform their duty during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic in the country. Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque will ask Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Archie Gamboa to investigate the supposed violations of the cops. It was recently reported that cops allegedly mauled a 33-year-old factory worker who supposedly violated the quarantine rules being implemented in General Trias, Cavite. The Palace spokesman also ensured that the government would not condone any violations committed by authorities. “We leave it to authorities. Pero kapag meron pong maling ginawa ang mga awtoridad, eh kino-correct naman po ng ibang ahensya ng gobyerno gaya ng piskalya,” Roque stressed./PNcenter_img “Alam niyo naman po, sa ating gobyerno, no one is above the law. Kung talagang may lumabag sa batas, meron naman pong imbestigasyon, paglilitis at pagpaparusa,” he said. The Palace spokesperson also said that the involved police officers would be held liable, in case evidence proves that they commit misconduct. “Paimbestigahan po natin iyan. Tatawagan natin mismo si PNP chief Gamboa at titignan po natin kung ano ang nangyari diyan,” Roque said.last_img
