PNP to continue serving arrest warrant to narco-politicians in Mindanao

admin   •   October 24, 2017   •   6495


MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) will not stop until drug personalities listed in their arrest order, especially narco-politicians who are allegedly involved in funding the Maute terrorist group, are arrested.

PNP chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa said they are not violating any orders because he reasoned that, “Hindi naman yan anti-drug operation. Hands-off na kami sa drugs di ba? But it is purely service of warrant so puwede namin ipagpatuloy yung pag hunting sa kanila dahil nga meron sila arrest order.”

(Translation: This is not an anti-drug operations. We are hands-off on drug operations. We can continue doing this because it is purely service of warrant. We can continue to hunt them down and serve the arrest order.)

The investigation against politicians allegedly helping the Maute group will also continue

The PNP will also start the rehabilitation of the Marawi City Police Station.

“Masakit sa amin yung naagaw sa amin yun from our position. Naagaw ng kalaban, sinunog pa nila eh masakit masyado sa amin (It was a big blow to us when the enemy seized [the station] from our position and even burned it down. It was too painful for us),” said Dela Rosa.

“The morale was dampened but now we are trying to reinvigorate the morale of Marawi City Police Station by helping them right away in rebuilding their home,” he added.

Based on the latest data of the PNP, seven police officers were killed and 61 were wounded in the war.

Dela Rosa assured that those who fought in Marawi will be given a reward and promotion.

The SAF troops will be back in Manila on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Dela Rosa expressed disappointment over those who questioned the planned promotion of PNP Task Force Marawi Commander PSSupt. Rolando Anduyan.

Dela Rosa believes that senior police officials are the ones questioning his decision.

He challenged those who oppose to go to Marawi themselves and fight it out with the terrorists because that was what Col. Anduyan did.

“Nandun siya, na wounded siya sa encounter. Anong gusto niyo? Porke senior kayo, nandiyan lang kayo sa opisina walang ginagawa kayo iuna kong i-promote, yung junior na fighting it out. Where’s meritocracy? ” said the PNP chief.

(Translation: He is there, wounded during an encounter. What do you want? Just because you’re seniors you stay inside the office doing nothing, you expect to be promoted first instead of the junior who is fighting it out. Where’s meritocracy?)

Dela Rosa believes he made the right decision in promoting those who worked hard and fought for Marawi’s liberation. — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

NTC, makikipag-ugnayan sa PNP at NBI para matunton ang nasa likod ng text scams

Robie de Guzman   •   November 23, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Makikipag-ugnayan ang National Telecommunications (NTC) sa pulisya at sa National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) para imbestigahan ang mga nasa likod ng text scams.

Ito ay kasunod na rin ng mga reklamo ng ilang mobile subscribers ukol sa natatanggap nilang mga text messages mula sa mga ‘di kilalang phone numbers na nag-aalok ng trabaho, o kaya ay pautang.

Ayon sa NTC, maraming paraan para makuha ang phone number ng isang indibiduwal na pinapadalhan ng spam texts.

Kabilang na dito ang listahan ng mga number na nagpapaload sa mga tindahan at sa contact tracing system ng mga establisimyento.

Pero giit ni NTC deputy commissioner Edgardo Cabarios, ipinagbabawal ang pagbibigay ng impormasyong ito sa ibang tao at paggamit rito para sa text scams.

“We can coordinate perhaps with NBI at police para surveillance, ano, ma-determine sino yung mga yan—grupo ba sila or individual, et cetera, et cetera,” ani Cabarios.

Payo ng NTC sa publiko, huwag magbigay ng personal na impormasyon kung makakatanggap ng mga ganitong mensahe.

Maaari namang i-block ng NTC ang phone number ng mga gumagawa ng ganitong aktibidad kung hihilingin ng mga magrereklamo.

Kung makakatanggap ng text scams, maaari itong ireport sa NTC Central Office Consumer Welfare and Protection Division sa mga numerong (+63) (02) 8920-4464; (+63) (02) 8926-7722; at (+63) (02) 8921-3251.

Maaari ding magpadala ng mensahe sa e-mail address ng NTC na consumer@ntc.gov.ph. (Mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Asher Cadapan Jr.)
