Sinas appointed as undersecretary at Office of the President
MANILA, Philippines — Former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Debold Sinas was appointed undersecretary at the Office of the President, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea confirmed on Saturday.
Sinas was appointed “Undersecretary, Office of the President,” according to Medialdea in a text message to INQUIRER.net.
Sinas retired from the PNP in May upon reaching 56 years old, the mandatory retirement age for uniformed personnel. He became controversial for the mañanita party held for his 55th birthday last year at the height of the pandemic when mass gatherings were banned.
When Sinas retired, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said President Rodrigo Duterte would give the former top cop a new post in government.
