MANILA, Philippines- Nagbabala si Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Rodolfo Azurin Jr. nitong Lunes sa mga police personnel na iwasan ang pag-solicit at pagtanggap ng mga regalo ngayong holiday season.

“While we understand that some want to reciprocate our deeds, I said let’s be strict this time. We do not ask because we all know that we are all having a hard time making ends meet. Lots of jobs have been lost and businesses are still recovering,” ani Azurin sa press briefing sa Camp Crame sa Quezon City.

“Definitely they will be administratively charged and they will also be criminally charged under provisions of graft and corrupt practices. Let’s be together, it means we celebrate Christmas, and we can have fun without spending a lot of money celebrating Christmas,” aniya pa.

Ipinagbabawal ang solicitation sa ilalim ng Presidential Decree 46 at papatawan ng karampatang aksyon ang sinumang PNP personnel na mapapatunayang nagsagawa nito.

Iginiit pa ni Azurin na ipinagbabawal sa police personnel ang pagtanggap ng anumang uri ng “token of gratitude.”

“Let’s refrain from giving gifts because the police might get used to it. This is why we made it a point to release their bonus early. At the same time, I urge them to spend it wisely because that came from the government. It’s part of the appreciation for their good performance. Let’s not cross more than what we are entitled to, especially if these are prohibited by law,” hikayat niya. RNT/SA
