Retirement of Barias to trigger PNP revamp

MANILA, Philippines?A looming top-level revamp in the Philippine National Police (PNP) might affect at least 17 senior police officials, among them a relative of First Gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo.

Chief Supt. Leonardo Espina, PNP spokesperson, confirmed the reshuffle within the police organization, saying it was triggered by the retirement of PNP Deputy Director General Geary Barias.

?This is a normal and regular movement because of the retirement of General Barias,? Espina told reporters.

Barias, the PNP deputy chief for administration, will retire tomorrow upon reaching the mandatory age of 56 for military and police personnel.

A member of the Philippine Military Class of 1975, Barias drew a strong rebuke when he ordered the arrest of journalists who covered the Manila Peninsula standoff in Makati City.

He was the chief of the National Capital Region Police Office at the time and commander of the police troops which assaulted the hotel to force renegade soldiers led by detained Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV to surrender.

Espina said Barias will be replaced by current PNP deputy chief for operations, Jefferson Soriano, who, in turn, will be succeeded by Deputy Director General Edgardo Acuńa, the chief of the PNP directorial staff.
