Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Archie Gamboa said that the policemen will not follow the order of President Rodrigo Duterte regarding the leftist groups.
KAMI learned that the PNP would still implement the law during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
In an interview with ANC, Gamboa explained that the President was just “overemphasizing” the implementation of the law.
"Of course not, probably the President just overemphasized on implementing the law in this time of crisis. Of course not," Gamboa said.
"We see the strong message and I think all the PNP personnel understood it,” he added.
According to Gamboa, he ordered the filing of charges against those who were arrested after they protested for relief amid the COVID-19 crisis.
"Sana naman they should not resort to these things. We’re mandated to enforce the law. People should understand that patience should be there," the PNP chief said.
"Patience should be a virtue. He (Duterte) even assured that nobody is going to get hungry,” he added.
In a previous report by KAMI, the Quezon City Police Department arrested at least 20 residents of Sitio San Roque who protested for lack of relief operations in their area.
Earlier, President Duterte ordered the police and military to shoot the leftists who criticize the distribution of goods during the enhanced community quarantine.
