It’s not even necessary. That is a show of extreme arrogance. The traffic altercation is a very simple and petty thing for you to show your arrogance,” Albayalde said.
As a retired official of PNP and a current public servant, Albayalde said that Ver must be an example and must not display arrogance, especially being an executive of the state-run corporation.
“My son has high regard for police but with what happened, the image of policemen was tainted in his mind. He understood the situation but what confused him is the attitude of the CDC executive who identified himself as an ex-general,” he said.
Due to the incident, Albayalde has called for a review of the freeport zones, including both Clark and Subic, and to check if they are allowed to bear firearms inside and outside of the said freeport zones in light of the election gun ban.
"We will check their mandate and on what extent their police power is inside the Freeport not only for Clark but also in other freeport zones in the country including Subic Bay Freeport," said Albayalde.
Ver was immediately relieved from his post after the incident.---With
