The Philippine National Police has relieved a total of 40 personnel from the Philippine National Police's Civil Security Group, the Supervisory Office for Security and Investigation Agencies and Firearms and Explosives Office due to alleged corruption.
Police Major General Roberto Fajardo, director of the CSG, made the announcement of the latest PNP directive during a press conference held at Camp Crame on Friday.
"Despite the first major revamp in CSG two weeks ago, reports still persist on corruptions, delaying the processing of documents, collecting grease money, withholding of approved licenses, importation permits, etc.," Fajardo said.
"If you are relieved, you are placed at the admin holding unit para wala kang ma-influence. At the same time, to give 'yung pumalit sa kanya, tingnan natin kung he will be good in the service," he added.
