MANILA, Philippines — Debold Sinas, acting director of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), said Friday that Vice President Leni Robredo may join operations of the police in Metro Manila if she wishes to do so.
In a press briefing, Sinas said he is “happy to work” with anybody for as long as it will help the drug war to be successful.
“If she would like to request that she join, then we assess if pwede, then why not? At least makikita niya ‘yung police in action. Wala naman kaming itinatago. Anytime sabihin ni Vice President, sama ako, then with arrangement, go ahead, no problem,” he said.
Robredo recently accepted the offer of President Duterte to be co-chairperson of Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD), where the Philippine National Police (PNP) is a member-agency.
After Robredo accepted the offer, she vowed that would put an end to killing of drug suspects.
According to Sinas PNP also does not want deaths during drug raids, but police officers should defend themselves when suspects resist. (Chris Figueroa/IAMIGO/CNS)
