MANILA—The Philippine National Police (PNP) is set to coordinate with the Philippine Air Force (PAF) for the transport of police scalawags to Basilan province.
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on Tuesday scolded the 228 erring policemen from the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), who are facing various offenses and violations of the law, and gave them 15 days to prepare to “move out”.
President Duterte gave them a two-year “tour of duty” in Basilan to hunt down the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) bandits.
NCRPO chief Director Oscar Albayalde said they will immediately coordinate with the PAF pursuant to the directive of the President to transfer the police scalawags to Basilan.
He said their PNP provincial and regional directors would allot funds if ever the erring policemen need to personally appear for the cases they are facing in courts in Metro Manila.
Albayalde, however, admitted that many of the erring policemen prefer to just resign from the service than be transferred to Basilan.
