Manila, Philippines – Inatasan na ng Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) ang kapulisan na protektahan ang media sa kaakibat na mga banta sa papalapit na halalan.

Sa ulat, inutusan na ng DILG ang Philippine National Police (PNP) na magtalaga ng Media Security Focal Persons sa bawat probinsya na tutugon sa media workers’ security concerns.

Base kay DILG spokesperson Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya, naglabas na ng memorandum si Secretary Eduardo Año kay PNP Chief General Dionardo Carlos.

Dagdag pa ng departamento, hiniling ito ni Presidential Task Force of Media Security (PTFoMS) Executive Director Joel Sy Egco kaugnay na rin sa mga karahasan sa media.

“We are one with the PTFoMS in providing security and other protective measures for media workers. They deserve to be shielded from every form of harm that they might be exposed to in the line of duty particularly during elections,” dagdag ni Año.

“The 4th Estate is an integral part of our democracy and government’s partner for a more peaceful, honest and orderly polls.” RNT/FGDC/Santi Celario
