Masbate PD wants Monreal police out of Mayor Espiloy’s control and supervision

CAMP GEN. SIMEON OLA, ALBAY – “This is the very first time here in Bicol that the Philippine National Police is requesting that the local police be out of the control and supervision of the Local Chief Executive of the municipality."

This was revealed to BICOL STANDARD by PNP Regional Information Officer P/Insp Malou Calubaquib, in a text message this morning.

Calubaquib said that the Monreal police force is housed in a small hut which serves as their temporary office.

This situation ensued after police officers decided to abandon the LGU building after a serious misunderstanding with Monreal town Mayor Ben Espiloy.

It will be recalled that this controversy erupted two weeks ago when the local police decided to shave the hair on their heads to protest the unfair treatment made by the town chief executive.

Allegedly, the mayor even scolded them when they refused not accommodate his request to allow a detention prisoner to use an air-conditioned room inside the PNP office.

The detention prisoner is facing a criminal charge for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.

There are also allegations that the detention prisoner is a friend and close ally of Mayor Espiloy, hence his request that he be given special treatment, the report added.

The refusal made by the PNP to follow the mayor’s order immediately triggered the decision of the Local Chief Executive to order the disconnection of the power supply to the police office.

“As of this morning, the situation is still the same,” Calubaquib said in a text message to BICOL STANDARD.

“We are just waiting for the decision of the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) to rule upon the petition of Masbate Provincial Director P/Supt. Karl Michael Reyes.

P/Sr Supt. Reyes requested the NAPOLCOM that the local chief executive of Monreal be stripped of his authority to have control and supervision of the police, Calubaquib said.

Meanwhile, the Regional Office of Philippine National Police has provided an augmentation force to avert any untoward incidents that may arise from the rather volatile situation, she explained.

As this developed, the local police in Monreal could not be persuaded to return to the office which they used to occupy before this controversy.

“There will be demoralization upon our ranks if we return to the office which we vacated,” said Police Sr/Inspector Ignacio Suarilla.

At press time, there are no reported untoward incidents in Monreal. The peace and order situation remains normal. – BICOLSTANDARD.COM
