PRESS STATEMENT

ON THE REINSTATEMENT OF POLICE SUPT. MARVIN MARCOS

I am curious as to what happened to and the status of the administrative case filed against him for summary dismissal before the NAPOLCOM (National Police Commission).

I still believe that by not pursuing cases against Marcos and treating him with kid gloves is a wasted opportunity for the administration to show and prove to the international community and its critics that it will not stand for abusive policemen and those who do shortcuts in violation of existing law in the performance of their duties.

This would have been a perfect opportunity to show, too, that the government will not tolerate any abuses, especially by state actors and law enforcement officials, in its war against drugs.
