MANILA, Philippines — Patuloy na nadadagdagan ang lumalabag sa COMELEC gun ban mula nang magsimula ang election period.
Base sa datos ng PNP nasa 2,287 na ang naaresto kabilang na rito ang mga sibilyan, pulis, sundalo, BFP personnel, elected at government officials, security guards, CAFGU, mga empleyado mula sa ibang law enforcement agency at iba pa.
Samantala, mas paiigtingin pa ng pulisya ang mga ipinatutupad na police checkpoint sa iba’t-ibang lugar sa bansa habang papalapit ang halalan.
Paalala ng pamunuan ng PNP, iwasan ang pagdadala ng mga ipinagbabawal tulad ng baril at bladed weapons upang hindi makasuhan. (UNTV News)
The Commission on Elections (Comelec) gun ban will come to a close as the election period ends tomorrow, (June 12).
This gives way for gun owners to carry firearms outside of their homes as long as they have the permit to do so.
The Philippine National Police (PNP) has recorded more than six thousand violators of the gun ban since it was launched on January 13.
More than five thousand guns and close to fifty thousand deadly weapons were confiscated by the authorities.
PNP spokesperson PCol Bernard Banac said, “lahat ng mga ito ay nakalaboso at sinampahan ng kaukulang kaso. Doon naman sa mga pulis na lumabag ay meron po silang kinakaharap ngayon na kasong administratibo dahil sa paglabag sa ating mg alituntunin at patakaran [all of them were detained and were filed cases against. The police officers who violated (the gun ban), are now facing administrative cases for violating our rules and regulations].” (with details from Lea Ylagan) /mbmf
