SINAS WARNS PARTYGOERS OF ARREST
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Debold Sinas has given a warning to the public that those who will attend parties this Christmas season will be arrested.
Earlier, the PNP chief announced that Christmas parties are prohibited in all units of the police force as the national government discourages celebrations during the holidays.
Sinas became the subject of the public’s outrage due to his birthday celebration in May despite the strict enforcement of quarantine protocols in Metro Manila due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sinas and other police officers were slapped with criminal complaints before the Taguig City Prosecutor’s Office due to this incident. There is no resolution yet on the complaints.
President Rodrigo Duterte has since defended Sinas over the incident and even appointed him as the 25th PNP chief in November.
