President Rodrigo Duterte has finally decided on whether he will keep or terminate National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Debold Sinas after his controversial birthday celebration.
KAMI learned that President Duterte defended the mañanita of Sinas.
In a report by CNN Philippines, Duterte said that Sinas is a “good” and “honest” officer. He also mentioned that it was not the fault of the NCRPO chief that he was serenaded during his birthday.
“Ako yung ayaw na malipat siya. He is a good officer. He is an honest one. Hindi niya kasalanan kung may mang-harana sa kanya sa birthday niya,” President Duterte said.
“At kung ‘yun namang sabi na nakikita hindi naka-mask, eh siyempre may mga meryenda ‘yan, may pagkain. Alangan namang kainin nila pati ‘yung mask. Di tatanggalin talaga nila,” he added
The President also explained that he studied the merits and demerits of Sinas’ case. Therefore, he decided to keep him because he needs him for his job.
“Sabihin mo ‘the law is the law’, well, akin na ‘yun. It’s my responsibility but I will not order his transfer. He stays there until further orders,” the President said.
In a previous report by KAMI, the Palace said that the President admitted that the gathering of people for Sinas’ birthday was “wrong.”
Earlier, the birthday celebration of Sinas drew flak from netizens for allegedly violating the enhanced community quarantine guidelines that prohibit mass gathering and strictly observe social distancing.
