Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff General Eduardo Año said erring police officers who were ordered sent to Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi by President Duterte should not complain and instead take advantage of the situation.

Año said that the Philippine National Police (PNP) personnel earlier presented to the Chief Executive in Malacanang due to alleged involvement in corruption, extortion and other criminal activities, should take the opportunity to rise from obscurity and do something positive, which may even merit the conferment of PNP Medal of Valor.

“They should take that positively. Like us here in the Armed Forces, that is an opportunity to earn the medal of valor. From P25, 000 the monthly gratuity increased to P75, 000. What’s wrong being assigned in Basilan and Sulu?,” Año said.

I just could not just hide this feeling, but is the  Chief o Staff ranting?  I hope I'm wrong though.  :-X

PNP to coordinate with PAF to fly scalawag cops to Basilan

MANILA, Feb. 8 (PNA) -- 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. (PNA)
