No more muz­zle-seal­ing

Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES -

FOR the sec­ond time, the Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice (PRO 11) will forgo the an­nual muz­zle-seal­ing of all gov­ern­ment-is­sued firearms this year as or­dered by Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice (PNP) Chief Ron­ald Dela Rosa.

“Since last year na naupo ang at­ing chief PNP, sin­im­u­lan po niya na hindi na tayo mag­co­con­duct ng muz­zle-tap­ing that is to show the public also gaano kare­spon­s­able ang at­ing ka­pulisan. Hindi na natin kailan­gan pang lagyan ng tape ang kani­lang mga baril,” PRO 11 spokesper­son Po­lice Chief In­spec­tor An­drea dela Cerna said yes­ter­day dur­ing a weekly AFP-PNP press Corps me­dia fo­rum.

Dela Cerna said that po­lice al­ready know that in­dis­crim­i­nate fir­ing is pro­hib­ited dur­ing yule­tide sea­son and that per­son­nel found guilty of this ac­tion will be fac­ing dis­missal and le­gal sanc­tion.

“Ac­tu­ally wala po tay­ong tinatawag na one strike pol­icy, dis­missal po ta­laga ang in­dis­crim­i­nate fir­ing if in case ma­pa­p­atu­nayan po na ang isang po­lice of­fi­cer na gi­na­mit niya yong firearm sa darat­ing na bagong taon, sa hol­i­day sea­son,” she said.

“Alam na­man na­man ng ka­pulisan ta­laga na bawal gamitin ang baril kung bagong taon. Hindi yan isang tool para icel­e­brate ang New Year so

we will not have much muz­zle tap­ing like what we did last year wala po tay­ong gi­nawang muz­zle tap­ing,” Dela Cerna said.

The na­tional head­quar­ters had also given a me­moran­dum not to so­licit dur­ing hol­i­day sea­son. JCR
