Cop chiefs who can't stop political killings to be sacked

CLARK FIELD, Pampanga (22 November) -- FOLLOWING the murder of three militants in as many provinces in just a week, Philippine National Police (PNP) Director General Oscar Calderon said on Wednesday that chiefs of police in areas where future political killings happen will be relieved.

Calderon, at a press conference following the National Forum on Internal Security here, said the move should prove his sincerity in seeking to end the continued political killings.

"The principle of command responsibility will be in effect," Calderon said. "Station commanders will be suspended pending the result of investigation."

Interior Secretary Ronaldo Puno also said the new policy is proof government is really against political killings.

Calderon said his new directive is similar to the "one-strike policy" in the campaign against jueteng, in which provincial police directors are sacked if they fail to stop the illegal numbers game.

However, in the case of the killings, Calderon said the relief would be temporary unless the officer in question is found guilty of failing to stop the killings. (PIA) [top]
