MANILA, Philippines — Acting Interior Secretary Catalino Cuy said President Rodrigo Duterte stands firm on his order that all investigations to be conducted against police and soldiers must have his consent.
This is in relation to the request of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) to open police case folders to which the president disagrees.
Still, Cuy said they are still open to help the CHR in any way possible.
“We’ll find other ways to help the CHR in their effort. We’ll continue the meetings, I hope they understand our position,” said Usec Cuy.
CHR plans to conduct a full review of all the case folders of the PNP that they believe are cases of extrajudicial killings
The commission wants to check, in particular, if incidents of victims resistance in police operations are true, specifically cases from May 2016 up to present.
The commission believes that within the said period, the number of deaths related to EJKs has increased.
Despite the president’s disapproval, the agency is not losing hope.
Based on the statement of Commissioner Chito Gascon, they will send another request on the matter.
Meanwhile, DILG plans to review all policies on the manner of recruitment, training, and deployment of policemen.
DILG is also in favor to return the full control to the PNP of all training involving new policemen.
Cuy said all of these are ways to maintain the good image of the PNP that critics want to destroy.
“Despite the effort of good policemen, there are some who wants to destroy our image, and we don’t want them also out of the organization,” said the undersecretary. — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue
