PRO 7 RE­CEIVES P1M FOR LE­GAL AID FROM LUYM

Sun.Star Cebu - - TOP STORIES -

A pri­vate group do­nated P1 mil­lion for the Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice (PRO) 7 per­son­nel who are fac­ing cases for per­form­ing their du­ties. Busi­ness­man Douglas Luym gave the le­gal as­sis­tance on Mon­day morn­ing, Jan. 14. This was not the first time Luym and his friends helped gov­ern­ment forces. He gave fi­nan­cial aid to the fam­i­lies of the slain 44 Spe­cial Ac­tion Force troop­ers in Maguin­danao three years ago and the vic­tims of the land­slide that hit Barangay Tina-an, Naga City last year. The as­sis­tance to PRO 7 per­son­nel came from a fund-rais­ing ac­tiv­ity, a golf tour­na­ment. PRO 7 Di­rec­tor De­bold Si­nas wel­comed the do­na­tion, say­ing it can help his per­son­nel who were in­volved in le­git­i­mate op­er­a­tions. Po­lice­men who are fac­ing crim­i­nal and ad­min­is­tra­tive charges be­cause of their il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties can­not re­ceive le­gal aid. Si­nas said they will not give spe­cial treat­ment to any busi­ness­men in ex­change for the le­gal aid.
