Major Gen. Debold Sinas was just appointed by Pres. Rodrigo Duterte as the Chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP). ABS-CBN News reported that his appointment will be immediately effective on November 10, Tuesday.
Sinas made headlines after he breached COVID-19 quarantine protocols when he celebrated his birthday with many people in attendance. The event became popularly known as "mañanita," following the term given by Sinas himself.
For Sen. Bato dela Rosa, Sinas "is a good choice." He added that Sinas has a proven track record.
"Nobody is perfect in this world. My advice to him: Continue the internal cleansing program and sustain the gains of PNP's anti-drug and anti-criminality campaign," said Dela Rosa in Rappler's report.
In Inquirer, Archie Gamboa, the PNP Chief prior to Sinas' appointment said that the mañanita was a closed issue.
Sen. Bato dela Rose is one of the neophyte senators. He is a retired police general and served as the Philippine Nationa Police Chief prior to becoming a senator.
The senator gave his reaction to the birthday party celebration of NCRPO Chief Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas. Bato said that Sinas could have just distributed the food to every household for his celebration.
Now, he is saying that Sinas was s a good choice for the position and that he has a proven track record. The appointment bypasses two other senior officials in the ranks.
