MANILA, Philippines — The station commander of the precinct where the Gubat sa Ciudad resort is located has been relieved from his post on Tuesday.

Caloocan Public Information Officer (PIO) confirmed to reporters that Major Harold Aaron Melgar of Congressional Police Sub-Station 9 was relieved from his duties.


“As per Col Mina, Maj Aaron Melgar of Sub-Station 9 was relieved from his post effective today,” the PIO confirmed to reporters, citing Col. Samuel Mina, Caloocan city’s chief of police.

Melgar will be replaced by Lt. Ronald Batalla, the local government added.


Earlier, Caloocan Mayor Oscar Malapitan said he had already summoned the chairman of Barangay 171 for failure to monitor and immediately act on the establishment’s quarantine violations.

The city government is not inclined to file charges against the guests of the Gubat sa Cuidad resort for now, Malapitan added, saying their priority is to have them swab tested and quarantined.
