by UNTV News | Posted on Wednesday, June 7th, 2017
MANILA — The Philippine National Police (PNP) has ruled that Resorts World Manila has no emergency response team that’s why the lone-gunman in Friday’s attack was able to enter the hotel premises.
PNP-Supervisory Office for Security and Investigation Agencies (SOSIA) has explained that because Resorts World has no such team, the guards who first encountered the gunman were obviously clueless of what to do during the incident.
PNP-SOSIA Chief PCSupt. Jose Espino added that the hotel also did not adhere to the standard security protocol.
They assigned only a few guards on graveyard shift of 12 midnight to 7 in the morning.
The hotel does not implement a buddy system and it doesn’t have command and control as well as a crisis management team,
Their security personnel also lack training and are not in proper uniform.
For this reasons, PNP-SOSIA has decided to conduct regular review and training sessions to all security providers to ensure that their personnel adhere with the standards.
“We again reminded the security managers of the standard procedures protocol. Okay security at nakita dun (it showed) what is lacking really are the drills and rehearsal ng kanilang (of their) security plan,” Espino said. – Grace Casin | UNTV News and Rescue

Authorities arrested alias Agatha who failed to escape after she was cornered. However the other suspect managed to flee.
According to Police Senior Supt. Villamor Tuliao, the Chief of the PNP Anti-Trafficking in Persons Division, the restobar had long been under surveillance after receiving complaints about the illegal activities by the suspects.
“Usually, they would offer via Facebook or other platforms on social media while others are through personal contacts that they have these women and these are the ages ranging from… actually the youngest we rescued is aged 14-yrs old,” WCPC Anti-Trafficking in Persons Division chief, PS/Supt. Villamor Tuliao said.
He added that the meeting for the trafficking of the women was supposed to take place at a diner, but the underage girls were being brought to hotels for sex.
The clients pay P4,000 to P5,000 for the services of the minors.
Tuliao reminded parents, “Warning to parents: properly monitor your children.”
The rescued women will be brought to Camp Crame for documentation. Afterwards, they will be turned over to the social workers of the Department Social Welfare and Development.
Alias Agatha, meanwhile, will face charges for violating the Anti- Trafficking in Person Act. – Mai Bermudez | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines – The New People’s Army (NPA) has long been a plague to society and oppressive to the public.
This is how Department of Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana considers the NPA with all its extortion activities.
Lorenzana said that what the NPA does, such as sowing division, killing innocent people, attacking government facilities, are acts of terrorism.
He added that the government has long been waiting to thresh out the peace talks but the NPA has not been showing any sign of interest.
In fact, the NPA has been launching various attacks despite the existence of a supposed unilateral ceasefire.
Even the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ leadership favors the decision of the President.
AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Rey Leonardo Guerrero said it is but fitting to call the NPA a terrorist based on their criminal acts.
In line with this, Guerrero said the AFP has launched unrestricted operations against the terrorist group.
On the other hand, the Philippine National Police assured that they are prepared to assist the military in their offensive moves against the NPA.
“We will have our combat operations. Ang amin pong role ay to support armed forces in the counter insurgency campaign(Our role is to support the armed forces in their counter insurgency campaign). So ang ating dedicated personnel diyan ay yung miyembro ng (So our dedicated personnel for that are members of the) police security forces, public safety battalion, provincial public safety companies,” PNP PIO Chief PC/Supt. Dionardo Carlos said.
The DND appeals to the public to cooperate with the military, police and the local government units and to report any citing’s of NPA members or dubious personalities in their community. – Lea Ylgan | UNTV News & Rescue
