Mayor Laarni Cayetano has commended two Taguig policewomen who declined a P100,000 bribe in exchange for the release of a Chinese national arrested for possession of a prohibited substance.
Cayetano said Patrolwomen Monaliza Bosi and Charmaine Galapon, both assigned to the Taguig Police’s Sub-Station 1 in Bonifacio Global City are proof that the local police force remains true to their mandate to serve and protect without fear or favor.
“These patrolwomen are exemplary models for standing their ground in a situation where their integrity was put to a test,” the mayor said, adding that the incident also showed that honesty and integrity are already a norm in the local police force.
Bosi and Galapon arrested the Chinese, identified as Bin Li, a 40-year-old sales manager, who had offered money for the release of Deng Jiliang, 33.
Deng, who works as information technology staff in a company at BGC, was nabbed earlier on March 26, after a sachet of shabu and drug paraphernalia were found in his possession and in a trash can in the hotel room where he was staying.
Mayor Cayetano said the two patrolwomen were exemplary models, not just for their fellow colleagues, but for the public in general.
Noting that March is Women’s Month, she added that the patrolwomen have emphasized that Filipino women are reliable, and can be trusted to do the right thing “even when push comes to shove.”
