Don’t cover up cops in drugs, Leni tells PNP

Vice President Leni Robredo on Sunday said any bid to cover up police officers in the narcolist could only erode the trust of the public in the Philippine National Police.

She said that the PNP must sanction erring policemen.

“Ipakita sana ng kapulisan na hindi sila nagpapabaya na hindi maparusahan iyong mga nag-aabuso. Kapag ang stance ng kapulisan [ay] pinapakita na parang pinagtatakpan pa, dito nag-uumpisa iyong erosion ng trust ng tao,” she said.

“Kung iyong institusyon mismo iyong nagko-cover up, iyong institusyon mismo iyong nagtatakip, malaki ang problema natin. Dapat sana sila iyong mag-exert ng effort ipakita sa taumbayan na, una, hindi nila tino-tolerate iyong wrongdoings,” she added.
