OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF PDIR GUILLERMO LORENZO T ELEAZAR, REGIONAL DIRECTOR OF NCRPO MRT BONI AVENUE STATION INCIDENT
February 10, 2019
We accord our PNP Uniform with high respect and wear it with dignity. We serve and protect the citizenry with integrity, professionalism and service aboveself, for these we do to serve God, country and people.
We can't just imagine kung paano at kung gaano kawalang galang sa Kapulisan ang nasaksihan natin sa insidenteng ito. Siyempre kahihiyan ito sa ating uniporme, sa ating organisasyon at sa ating pagkatao. The incident at the Boni Avenue Station of MRT yesterday when a female Chinese National intentionally threw and spilled Soya drink or Taho towards a NCRPO personnel who was on-duty thereat is offensive, to say the least. The act commited by Jiale Zhang against P01 William Cristobal is clearly a case of unmitigated Disrespect to an Agent of a Person in Authority. PO1 Cristobal was assisting in the implementation of the security policy of the MRT Management and DOTr that prohibits passengers from bringing with them any food, drinks and all items in liquid form.
I commend P01 Cristobal for exemplifying the highest standard of discipline in handling thus unusual occurence. On the other hand, after the filing of a criminal case against Zhang, we will recommend to the Bureau of Immigration that she be considered and declared as an "UNDESIRABLE ALIEN"; which will eventually be the basis for her deportation. Hindi lang naman sa kanya isinasagawa ito kundi sa lahat. Kahit sino sa atin na nandito, pag-ganyan ang gagawin, mayroong corresponding action na dapat gawin ang ating Kapulisan.
Tayo sa Pilipinas, we have rules and regulations here. Just like when we are in other countries, we also follow their rules and law. Kaya kung nasa local at foreign country tayo sundin natin ang batas na pinapatupad naman ng kapulisan. Respetuhin natin ang ating Kapulisan.
On the part of the NCRPO, we are just recommending proactive and precautionary measures based on the specific guidelines, it's up to the agency concerned, the DoTr, MRT and LRT management, na isama lahat pati na ang mga exemptions. Maybe upon assessment and study, they will consider our recommendation. Kaya nga naglabas sila ng circular, ng memo para i-implement ito. Then we will support the MRT and LRT in its security.
Hinihingi ko muli ang pang-unawa at kooperasyon ng publiko sa ating mga tagapagpatupad ng batas maging pulis man ito o ibang Law Enforcement Agencies. Ang punto natin dito ay gusto naming ipakita sa ating mga kababayan at sa lahat na ipinatutupad natin ito para din sa kanila. No one is above the law. Rest assured we will remain dedicated and committed in the strict implementation of our policies and existing laws of the land especially in the adherence to human rights.
