President Rodrigo Duterte finally aired his thoughts on the controversial and highly-criticized birthday celebration of NCRPO Chief Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas, which the latter opted to call as "mañanita."
According to Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, the President admits that the gathering during the birthday of Sinas amid the quarantine was "wrong."
KAMI learned that the President will also let the investigation determine if Sinas will be suspended or not, according to Roque.
A report of the Manila Bulletin revealed that the charges will not only be filed against Sinas, but also against the 43 other officers who were at the gathering. The charge was for a violation of the ordinance that imposes the quarantine.
As per CNN, the Internal Affairs Service is bound to complete its investigation on Sinas and the other "mañanita" cops.
In a previous report by KAMI, the government faced problems when they imposed the initial community quarantine, which was elevated into enhanced community quarantine. It also suspended transportation causing massive problems with commuters.
The coronavirus outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. At present, the Philippines is under a state of calamity while the entire Luzon is under an enhanced community quarantine.
