PNP chief orders probe into cop’s alleged sexual abuse of quarantine violator

UNTV News   •   August 29, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar has ordered an investigation into a reported incident in Mariveles, Bataan in which a female quarantine violator was allegedly sexually abused by a policeman.

“Kaagad kong inatasan ang regional director ng Police Regional Office 3, Police Brig. Gen. Val de Leon, na magsagawa ng imbestigasyon upang malaman natin ang buong katotohanan tungkol dito,” Eleazar said in a statement.

Based on the initial report, the policeman and another civilian manning a quarantine control point accosted the victim on Friday (August 27) for violating quarantine rules.

The victim was then taken to the boarding house of the policeman where the two took turns in molesting the victim.

The accused policeman, who has a rank of patrolman and was assigned to the 2nd Provincial Mobile Force Company, is currently under restrictive custody and has been ordered to respond to the allegation against him.

The PNP chief expressed his condemnation of police personnel who abuse the authority entrusted to them.

“Walang lugar sa PNP ang mga pulis na ginagamit ang kapangyarihan na ipinagkaloob ng taumbayan para magsamantala at mang-abuso ng ating mga kababayan,” he said.

“Marami na tayong naparusahan at natanggal sa serbisyo ng mga ganitong uri ng pulis at hindi tayo titigil hanggang hindi nauubos ang mga tiwali sa aming hanay,” he added.

The PNP chief reiterated his directive to police personnel to be courteous at all times and respect people’s rights when implementing quarantine protocols.

“Noon pa man, mahigpit ang bilin ko sa ating kapulisan tungkol sa pagrespeto ng ating mga kababayan sa kanilang pagpapatupad ng quarantine protocols sa gitna ng banta ng COVID-19,” he said.

Eleazar vowed to monitor the investigation of the case and assured to file appropriate charges if the allegations are proven to be true.

“Makakaasa ang ating taumbayan na tutukan ko ang kasong ito at kung lumabas sa imbestigasyon na totoo ang akusasyon, tinitiyak ko sa inyo na hindi lang matatanggal sa serbisyo ang pulis na ito dahil sasampahan din natin siya ng patong-patong na kaso,” he said.

Papayagan na rin ang outdoor exercises subalit maaari lamang itong gawin mula alas-sais lamang hanggang alas-nuwebe ng umaga.

Paalala ng Palasyo, limitado pa rin ang paglabas ng bahay at ang pagbiyahe lamang para sa mga pangunahing pangangailangan, serbisyo at trabaho sa mga pinahihintulutang industriya ang papayagan sa MECQ areas. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Rosalie Coz)
