by Babes Jacob-Rebultan

ICC Iligan City (3 November) -- "Actually, we are consistent with the Armed Forces of the Philippines' Code of Ethics. As such, we, as professional members of the AFP are duty bound to uphold and support the Constitution as declared by the Chief of Staff of the AFP."

Thus stressed Col. Agane Adriatico, Civil Military Operations (CMO) Chief, G7, First Infantry Division, Philippine Army when asked by mediamen on the stand of the military regarding the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippine's (CBCP) call for the President to step down.

During a recent press briefing at the Information Command Center (ICC), Philippine Information Agency, this city, Adriatico said, military men would stand by and defend the assertion of their Chief-Of-Staff of the AFP, Gen. Alexander Yano to stay apolitical and not comment on anything that is against the Constitution.

Meanwhile, P/Insp. Melfin Ian Burlat, Police Community Relations Officer (PCRO) of the Iligan City Police Office (ICPO), also said, in so far as the Philippine National Police National (PNP) is concerned, they will uphold the law and follow the chain of command of Pres.. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, the AFP Commander-In-Chief.

"What is in the law shall always be followed and our loyalty remains with the Constitution," Burlat also stressed. (PIA-10) [top]
