In the name of ‘delicadeza,’ NCRPO Chief Sinas urged to resign
Manila, Philippines — “If the President can’t remove chief Sinas, then the latter must voluntarily quit from his post in the name of delicadeza, and face the consequences of his actions,” According to the militant fishers group Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (PAMALAKAYA) on Thursday, reacting to President Rodrigo Duterte’s statement that National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Chief Debold Sinas who violated quarantine protocols over a birthday bash, will be kept in his post despite the public outcry to hold him accountable.
“Along with the other party cops, Sinas should be facing the full throttle of the law just like how they impose it ruthlessly against ordinary citizens who are being alleged of violating the quarantine. The harshness of the law should also apply to the enforcers who violate it,” Fernando Hicap, PAMALAKAYA National Chairperson said in a statement.
PAMALAKAYA lambasted President Duterte for his ‘double standard’ in upholding the rule of law by defending his officials who are guilty of violating health protocols, while ordering individuals to be ‘shot dead’.
“While ordinary citizens got beaten black and blue, threatened and harassed, publicly humiliated, jailed and even killed, authorities, including but not limited to allies of the administration, are being given the benefit of compassion. This is injustice on so many levels,” ended Hicap. ###
