National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Police Major General Debold Sinas insisted on Thursday that there was nothing wrong with his birthday celebration.
KAMI learned that Sinas also said that he won’t be taking a leave while the investigation regarding his celebration is pending unless ordered by the Philippine National Police chief or President Rodrigo Duterte.
In an interview with CNN Philippines, Sinas said that it was his officers who prepared for the “gathering.” He also mentioned that social distancing was observed and people were wearing face masks.
"'Yung gathering po na 'yun, hindi po 'yun mali. Wala po kaming nakitang mali doon, for me ha?,” Sinas said.
“It's just simple greetings, ganito... It's very ungentleman naman 'yan kung hindi ko sila hinarap at kung sabi ko huwag na kayo kumanta sa akin. They prepared for that eh. Alam niyo naman po, nag-observe sila ng social distancing at nagmask po sila diyan,” he added.
In a previous report by KAMI, Sinas issued an apology after photos of his supposed birthday celebration went viral on social media and drew flak from netizens.
The NCRPO chief earlier argued that there was no “party” that happened and it was only their traditional mañanita.
