PNP tells Non to report threats to police
MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Guillermo Eleazar urged Maginhawa Community Pantry organizer Ana Patricia Non to report to the police the threats of rape and murder sent to her in an initiative to identify who are behind it.
Eleazar said the PNP would be ready to assist Non, and assured her that they would track down the people behind the harassment she has been receiving.
“Nakahanda po ang PNP na tulungan si Ms. Non lalo na kung may banta sa kanyang buhay. Maaari siyang dumulog sa pinakamalapit na police station para ireport itong mga threats na natatanggap niya at agad na maimbestigahan ng ating kapulisan kung sino ang gumagawa ng mga ito,” said Eleazar in a statement.
(The PNP is ready to help Ms. Non especially if there are threats towards her life. She may get in touch with the nearest police station to report the threats she has been receiving so the police could investigate who are behind this.)
“Huwag po siyang magdalawang-isip na lumapit sa ating mga awtoridad dahil sinisiguro ko sa kanya na aaksyunan ng PNP ang kanyang mga hinaing o reklamo,” Eleazar added.
(She should not think twice in approaching our authorities because I can assure her that the PNP would take action on her complaints.)
According to Eleazar, Non could avail of the PNP’s law enforcement services, including security, once she gets in touch with the police.
The PNP would also utilize the Anti-Cybercrime Group to identify and track down Non’s harassers, and would look into all possible angles behind the threats, said Eleazar.
Non disclosed on Tuesday that she has been receiving threats towards her life, and she would take a break from interviews and photo ops to focus on running the Maginhawa community pantry.
