PNP won’t follow Duterte ‘shoot them dead’ order

first_img “Sana naman they should not resort to these things. We’re mandated to enforce the law. People should understand that patience should be there,” Gamboa said. “Patience should be a virtue. He (Duterte) even assured that nobody is going to get hungry.” “Hindi pananakot ang sagot sa gutom. Hindi pananakot ang solusyon sa #COVID-19,” Pangilinan meanwhile wrote on Twitter. “Itigil na ang kalokohan. Solusyon sa gutom ang kailangan. Nasaan ang pondo at pagkain ng taumbayan?” “The PNP does not condone abuse in implementing the law,” the PNP chief added. “It has been the policy of the PNP that we always exercise maximum tolerance and within the bounds of the law.” Duterte placed Luzon under enhanced community quarantine starting March 17 – by enforcing strict home lockdown with some exemptions, suspending classes, and temporarily shutting down mass transportation – in a bid to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease in the country./PN PRACTICING.

Photo by Ben Nabong/Rappler Duterte’s statements came just hours after a group of Quezon City residents from Sitio San Roque protested along EDSA until they were arrested and dispersed by authorities for violating the enhanced community quarantine. Physical punishment must not be imposed on arrested curfew violators, according to the Joint Task Force Corona Virus Shield, tasked to implement government’s guidelines on the Luzon lockdown. Meanwhile, Duterte’s statements did not sit well with the opposition senators with Risa Hontiveros and Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan issuing condemnations on the Chief Executive’s threats. “Probably, the President just overemphasized on implementing the law in this time of crisis. Of course, we will not follow that order,” Gamboa said in an interview with ABS-CBN News Channel. “We see the strong message and I think all the PNP personnel understood it.” “Ang mga tao ngayon ay gutom, may sakit at nawalan ng kabuhayan. Ang kailangan ng taumbayan ngayon ay pagkain, ayuda, at proteksyon sa mga frontliners, hindi dahas at pagbabanta,” Hontiveros said. MANILA – The Philippine National Police (PNP) will not follow President Rodrigo Duterte’s “shoot them dead” order against leftist who will create chaos while the country fights the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). “Don’t threaten the hungry with brute police force. These threats will not fill empty stomachs. The President should give the people adequate food and jobs, not bullets,” KMU chairperson Elmer “Ka Bong” Labog said in a statement. Leftist labor group Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU) said the Duterte administration should listen to the cries of the poor instead of turning a blind eye to their pleas and resorting to violence. In an address to the public on Wednesday evening, President Duterte ordered his troops to shoot and kill quarantine violators if the protests prove to be a threat to law enforcers’ lives. The President might have “overemphasized” the implementation of the law in time of the outbreak, according to PNP chief General Archie Gamboa. last_img read more

FIFA steps in to run Venezuelan Football after death of Acting President

first_imgFIFA has appointed a Normalisation Committee to run the Venezuelan Football Federation (FVF) following the death of Acting President Jesús Berardinelli last month. The worldwide governing body said the Committee, which will manage the body on a day-to-day basis and will organise elections, had been installed to address the “leadership vacuum” at the FVF. Berardinelli had been acting President since January after Laureano González stepped down citing health problems. He was also first vice-president of the FVF and FIFA said his death at the age of 61 – which came shortly after he was arrested on charges of misusing public money – meant the the FVF “is currently facing a situation in which its President and first vice-president are permanently absent”. “This leadership vacuum prevents the FVF from taking key administrative and sporting decisions during these critical times, which could impact negatively on the development of Venezuelan football at all levels,” FIFA said in a statement.Advertisement Restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic could also prevent the FVF from holding its elections within the time period set out in its statutes, FIFA added. The Normalisation Committee’s mandate is set to run until June 30 of next year at the latest. read also:US Justice Department cautions FIFA on international ban FIFA stepping in to run the FVF marks the latest crisis for the Venezuelan body, which was embroiled in the corruption scandal at the worldwide organisation. González took over as FVF President after predecessor Rafael Esquivel, a former vice-president of the South American Football Confederation, was arrested during dawn raids at the Baur Au Lac hotel in Zurich ahead of FIFA’s Congress in May 2015.
