Da­vide: No shoot or­der at CPDRC

The Freeman - - NEWS - — Le Phyl­lis F. An­to­jado

Cebu Gov­er­nor Hi­lario Da­vide III did not like the threat made by the act­ing jail war­den of Cebu Pro­vin­cial De­ten­tion and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Cen­ter, Aud­esti Miguel, to shoot any­one who en­ters the re­stricted area in­side the fa­cil­ity.

Da­vide said he was not aware of the pol­icy and vowed to call Miguel’s at­ten­tion about it.

“I will call Aud­esti Miguel and urge him to act within the bounds of law but re­main strong in their cam­paign against il­le­gal drugs,” Da­vide said.

Da­vide said he be­lieves that the act­ing war­den was just giv­ing a stern warn­ing to jail per­son­nel in CPDRC.

“I fig­ure nga iyang rea­son para lang gyud to in­still dis­ci­pline sa mga guards diha nga gahi og ulo ba,” Da­vide said.

Miguel is­sued a me­moran­dum ear­lier dis­al­low­ing jail per­son­nel from en­ter­ing the “re­stricted area” at the CPDRC with­out “se­cu­rity clear­ance” from his of­fice or else they will be shot if they in­sist on cross­ing the area.

“I have di­rect or­ders to any­body as­signed there to chal­lenge any­body who would go near and would at­tempt to cross the line and make them aware that we’re gonna shoot them if they do. I as­sure them that who­ever is guard­ing there, I’ll back you up,” Miguel said.

Miguel was re­fer­ring to the back door go­ing to CPDRC’s kitchen area, which he be­lieves con­tra­bands were sneaked into. He said the main en­trance of the struc­ture is well guarded by the per­son­nel of Cebu Pro­vin­cial Po­lice Of­fice (CPPO).

Miguel said the “re­stricted area” only ap­plies to CPDRC per­son­nel but not to in­mates who have er­rands in­side.
