Missing teens in Pasay, Quezon City, not abducted – PNP
Maris Federez • December 3, 2019 • 411
Police authorities belied rumors that the seven teenagers in Pasay City who were initially reported missing were abducted.
Pasay City police chief PCol. Bernard Yang said the teens were not taken by force but voluntarily boarded a white van.
“Base sa kapatid ng isa sa nawawala ay makikipagkita lang ang kapatid niya sa isang kaibigan niya. At nang matapos mag meet up ay hindi na umuwi ang kanyang kapatid. Ganon din yung sa puting van na nawawala. Makikita sa video na mukhang kakilala nga nila at walang resistance,” Yang said.
(According to the sister of one of the missing, her sibling was to meet a friend. But after the meet-up her sibling did not return home. The same goes for the missing white van. We can see on the video that it seems like the teens are familiar [with the people inside it], and there was no resistance.)
Yang added that these teens were members of two groups.
National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) acting director PBGen. Debold Sinas, meanwhile, confirmed that these teens are involved in the illegal drug trade.
“Yung apat involved in selling, yung tatlo dito nagbigay ng affidavit ang kapatid nag-o-online sila pero ang cover nila sa online ay sapatos ang binibenta […] Ang theory namin baka hindi nakapag remit ang mga ito […] Most likely baka ang mga ito ay nagtaguan at hindi sinasabi sa pamilya,” Sinas said.
(Four are involved in selling. A sibling gave an affidavit testifying that three of the teens are into online selling, but the cover is selling of shoes […] Our theory is that perhaps these teens were not able to remit […] Most likely they went into hiding without telling their families.)
Meanwhile, the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) has also clarified that the ten teenagers who were also initially reported missing since August are now all accounted for.
Authorities said some of the female teenagers went off with their boyfriends, while the others had run away from home because of misunderstanding with their families. (from the report of Lea Ylagan) /mbmf
MANILA, Philippines – The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) on Tuesday (February 11) ordered a ban on all forms of gambling in Metro Manila, even during wakes and fiesta celebrations.
“Nag-issue ako ng directive na maski sa patay bawal,” NCRPO director Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas told reporters at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.
The NCRPO Chief added that his directive was already cascaded to local chief executives across the metropolis.
These include any form of numbers game like color games, video karera and ‘sakla’ which gamblers usually set up in wakes.
Sinas added that they received reports that funeral shops allegedly sell or rent out cadavers for fake wakes to set up betting games.
“Ang guidance ko pakiusapan muna at pag ayaw ay saka i-raid para hindi nila masabi na wala din kami konsiderasyon (My guidance to the police is to talk to the organizers and if they refuse, they may raid the location so they may not accuse us of being inconsiderate),” Sinas explained.
The NCRPO chief warned to automatically relieve police official in charge once he received reports of gambling in his area of duty.
“Lantarang saklaan, sabungan, number games, VK pag andyan yan ibig sabihin meron talaga kayong proteksyon (If sakla or card games, derby, number games, video karera is still in practice in your area, that would mean you are a protector),” Sinas warned members of the police.
Such effort by the NCRPO is in support of Philippine National Police Chief DG Archie Gamboa’s ‘no-take policy’ in order to curb illegal gambling in the country.
Other police officials, meanwhile, also expressed similar support to the program.
“On behalf of the MPD, I would like to pledge to our chief PNP and our regional director to support all their focus program and program trust the “NO TAKE POLICY” and to go against all forms of illegal activities,” assured Manila Police Director PBGen. Bernabe Balba.
“Ang buong SPD under my leadership are fully abide with the full commitment of following the no-take policy of our Chief PNP,” added Southern Police District Acting Director PCol. Emmanuel Peralta.
Sinas, likewise, encouraged the public to capture a video or a photo of any gambling activities in Metro Manila and immediately report the incident to the nearest police authority. MNP (with details from Lea Ylagan)
The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) has formed their own response team against the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).
According to NCRPO Director PMGen. Debold Sinas, this team will be the first responders in case they receive reports of a suspected case of 2019-nCoV.
Sinas said they will also implement security measures before anyone can enter Camp Crame.
“Sa mga kampo or offices ang unang tanong sayo ay ‘Galing ka ba sa China or these places?’ So please answer it, baka hindi ka i-entertain, (In our camp or offices, they will ask if you’ve been to China or these places. So please answer itor they might not entertain you),” he said.—AAC (with reports from Lea Ylagan)
MANILA, Philippines — Members of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) will contribute Php100 each as their collective donation to the victims of the Taal Volcano eruption.
NCRPO acting director Police Brigadier General Debold Sinas said, the Php100 contribution of each police personnel will be deducted from the Php3,000 combat duty allowance that President Rodrigo Duterte issues to them monthly.
The senior police officers, meanwhile, signified that they will donate the whole Php3,000 to the victims.
The NCRPO expects to collect a donation of not lower than Php2.5-Million.
“That is the effort of NCRPO to help and assist the evacuees of the Taal Volcano eruption,” Sinas said.
On the other hand, rather than collecting Php100 each from the 500 NCR police whose families are also victims of the earthquakes brought about by Taal’s explosion, the NCRPO will instead grant them Php10,000 each as financial aid.
Meanwhile, more than 1,000 police from the Reactionary Standby Support Force (RSSF) stationed at Camp Crame will be deployed to Cavite and Batangas to give assistance to the victims and maintain security in the areas affected by the Taal explosion.
According to PLtGen. Guillermo Eleazar who heads the PNP Directorial Staff, the said police personnel will augment Police Calabarzon who had been deployed in the area for several days now.
“Yung mga pulis na nagbabantay doon since noong Linggong ito ay meron silang mga kamag anak at pamilya na naapektuhan din ng kalamidad dahil doon sila naka assign at doon din sila nakatira most of them. Kaya mas maganda na halinhan muna ang mga ito ng mga tropa natin galing sa NHQ, para sila ay makabalik sa kanilang mga bayan at pamilya at matulungan naman,” Eleazar said.
The said augmentation force who were issued face masks, goggles, and Php500 per day food allowance will stay in their assignments for three days and will be replaced on Monday by another batch of RSSF police. — (from the report of Lea Ylagan) /mbmf
