4 Manila cops axed for incompetence-A A +A
Wednesday, December 11, 2013
FOUR officials of the Manila Police District (MPD) who failed to pass their latest performance evaluation have been removed from their posts.
They were Superintendent Wilson Doromal of MPD Station 11 (Binondo), Superintendent Ricardo Layug of Station 3 (Sta. Cruz), Superintendent Orlando Mirando Jr. of Station 5 (Ermita), and Superintendent Amante Daro of Station 8 (Sta. Mesa).
Chief Superintendent Isagani Genabe Jr., MPD chief, said the four police officials have failed to reach the minimum grades required for officials holding station commander titles.
He said that the relieved officers will be reassigned in their mother unit at the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO).
Meanwhile, Genabe clarified that the relief of Layug is not influenced by politics.
Layug was then in-charge when a group led by Vice Mayor Isko Moreno was arrested by the MPD personnel while holding fund raising bingo game in Sta. Cruz at the height of the campaign period for the mid-term polls.
Moreno had claimed that they were arrested on orders of then Manila mayor Alfredo Lim. Lim was defeated in last May elections by Moreno's running mate former President Joseph Estrada.
Genabe said Layug's failure to resolve criminalities in his area of responsibility led to his removal from his post.
Layug will be replaced by Superintendent Aldrin Gran, while Superintendent Raymundo Ligodin will replace Doromal. Superintendent Fernando Ofelano is set to replace Daro while Superintendent Albert Barot will replace Mirando.
Genabe said that he will continue to implement the "One-strike policy" of the Manila mayor for the underperforming police officials, particularly among stations and precinct commanders' in-charge. (Sunnex)
