PNP on trial

LET it be acknowledged from the outset that Philippine National Police is being unfairly put on the spot by a so-called special report accusing the national government of creating, funding, and protecting a network of assassins to implement its war on illegal drugs.

The accusers have remained nameless and faceless even after providing a 26-page summary of their allegations to the Commission on Human Rights, the Catholic Church, and the media. 

That said, there is no way that the PNP leadership can sidestep the issue in the hope that it will somehow go away or fade into oblivion.

Despite not knowing who among its members are behind the damning accusations, PNP chief Ronald dela Rosa has no choice but to confront the charges.

The PNP now has all the right to demand a copy of the anonymous report. It can start by guaranteeing the immunity and safety of the 17 active and retired officers who risked everything so that the people may know. – PT.
