At least 84 members of the Philippine National Police (PNP) will be dismissed for various offenses, including a female officer who aided Abu Sayyaf members in Bohol.
Director General Ronald dela Rosa, PNP chief, said the mass dismissal is proof that the PNP is serious in purging the organization of scalawags and misfits.
“This is a proof that we are serious in what we are doing. More will come because as I have said, we are implanting a no-mercy policy on illegal activities involving policemen,” said dela Rosa.
Among those to be dismissed are Supt. Maria Christina Nobleza who was caught at a checkpoint in Clarin town in Bohol last April while allegedly trying to rescue trapped and wounded Abu Sayyaf fighters.
“I will sign it today,” referring to the recommendation made by the Internal Affairs Service on the administrative case slapped against Nobleza.
Also facing dismissal is Supt. Lito Cabamongan, who was caught in a pot session with a woman in Las Pinas City three months ago.
