Dela Rosa sacks some members of Metro Manila, QC anti-drugs unit

/ 05:51 PM July 05, 2016

Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa immediately sacked some members of the anti-illegal drugs unit of Metro Manila and Quezon City Police and sent them to Mindanao on the day he assumed office last Friday.

Dela Rosa ordered the relief of the members of the National Capital Region Police Office Regional Anti-Illegal Drugs Unit (NCRPO-RAID) and Quezon City Police District’s Anti-Illegal Drugs Unit (QCPD-DAID) and transfer to different Mindanao provincial units.

President Rodrigo Duterte earlier identified two former QCPD chiefs as protectors of drug syndicates—Police Director Joel Pagdilao and Chief Supt. Edgardo Tinio.

The relieved anti-narcotics operatives will be assigned to the regional police offices of Zamboanga, Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, and Caraga.

The relief order was signed by Chief Supt. Fernando Mendez Jr., chief of the Directorate for Personnel and Records Management, and Chief Supt. Ramon Apolinario, Chief of the Directorial Staff. 

Disgruntled members of QCPD DAID, however, are complaining about the transfer order, saying that it is unfair for Dela Rosa to assume that all personnel are involved in drugs.
