MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police Internal Affairs Office (PNP-IAS) claims that a number of errant policemen already recommended for dismissal remains on active service.

PNP IAS Inspector General Atty. Alfegar Triambulo noted that based on record from 2015 to 2017, only 30% or 721 from the total of 2,431 cops recommended for dismissal had been removed from the organization.

Triambulo said it seems that the PNP is being slow in addressing their recommendation.

“Pagkatapos po mapirmahan ng inspector general o regional director ng IAS ay pino-forward po naman sa disciplinary authority. Kung sa Crame ay kay CPNP pero kapag sa region ay sa regional director ng police regional office,” he noted.

(After securing the signature or the inspector general or IAS regional director, it is forwarded to the disciplinary authority. In Crame it would be CPNP [Chief of the Philippine National Police], but in regions it is the regional director of the police regional office.)

With this, the Inspector General said DILG Officer in Charge Eduardo Año already ordered an investigation on the matter to find out the loopholes in the process.

Meanwhle, PNP Directorate for Personnel and Records Management PCInsp. Gregorio Oscar Tambuli, in defense, said all recommendations needs to go through due processes so they cannot just dismiss anyone from active duty.

“Once na napirmahan ni CPNP ang decision, we have to inform the respondent kaya binibigyan pa natin sila ng 10 days for motion for reconsideration. Iyon po ang nagpapatagal,” Inspector Tambuli explained.

(Once the CPNP signs the decision, we have to inform the respondent so we give them 10 days to file motion for reconsideration. It’s what causes the delay.) — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue
