PNP approves security escorts for 6 WV politikos


The Philippine National Police (PNP) has approved the application of four congressmen and two governors from Region 6 for additional security this election period.

Regional police director Brigadier General John Bulalacao identified the four as Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Sr., Antique Governor Rhodora Cadiao, Iloilo City Rep. Jerry Treñas, Iloilo Rep. Raul Tupas(5th district), Antique Rep. Paolo Javier, and Bacolod City Rep. Greg Gasataya.

In a Panay News article, Bulalacao said he recommended the approval of their application to PNP Chief Police Director General Oscar Albayalde.

The six officials will each have two police escorts.

“So far ito lang muna ang na-approve na requests ng mga kandidato. We can only give them at most two police escorts kasi kung marami kukulangin tayo ng tao,” according to the police chief.
