9 SAf members sacked

MANILA, Philippines — Two Philippine National Police-Special Action Force (PNP-SAF) members who figured in a fistfight while reportedly moonlighting as bodyguards of a Chinese national were relieved from their posts together with seven of their superiors, according to the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO).

“They have been relieved from their duties pending the outcome of a thorough investigation. This action underscores the SAF’s commitment to accountability and maintaining the highest standards of conduct,” the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) said in a statement.


“We want to make sure that even their bosses and those who worked with them will also be included in the (admin) case. Why did SAF allow this?” PNP chief General Rommel Marbil said during a press briefing held on Monday. 


Earlier, NCRPO said the two SAF members, Corporal George Rojo Mabuti and Patrolman Roger Ramos Valdez, will face administrative charges for “neglect of duty and misconduct for moonlighting and unauthorized provision of VIP security, including their Head of Office/Commander.”

“The SAF assures the public that this incident is being taken seriously and that appropriate disciplinary measures will be enforced against any personnel found guilty of violating regulations,” the SAF added.

Valdez and Mabuti figured in a fistfight in a residential community in Alabang, Muntinlupa City at around 3:15 p.m. on May 18.

Eventually, the police said Mabuti reportedly fled the scene and sought refuge in one of the homes in the village, causing alarm and panic among the residents.

Both were eventually arrested by responding police officers.

Mabuti was assigned to the 52nd Special Action Company Zamboanga, while Valdez was assigned to the 55th Special Action Company Zamboanga.


Both allegedly served as bodyguards for a Chinese national.
