Citing the need for transparency, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson has made public the details of the institutional amendments he proposed in the P3.7-trillion national budget for 2019.
Lacson expressed hope other proponents of amendments to the budget will do the same, to remove speculations that the bicameral conference committee is a venue for “horse trading” and compromises among legislators.
“In the spirit of transparency, I instructed my staff to make public all my amendments in the 2019 national budget. I hope all proponents will do the same to remove all suspicions that the bicameral conference is a venue for sneaky horse trading among legislators,” he said in a post on his Twitter account.
Isinulong ni Senador Panfilo Lacson ang pag-ayuda sa Sandatahang Lakas ng Pilipinas kontra sa lumalalang terorismo sa pamamagitan ng paglaan ng halos P5 bilyon sa badyet nito sa kasalukuyang taon.
Sa kanyang pagdalo sa bicameral panel meeting para sa 2019 national budget, isiniwalat ni Lacson na ang P4.78 bilyon ay kanyang iminumungkahing ilaan para sa karagdagang Infantry Division ng Philippine Army.
“It is an institutional amendment that I introduced, for the activation of an infantry division as requested by the Department of National Defense (DND),” paliwanag ni Lacson sa harap ng mga kasamahang bumubuo sa bicameral panel ng budget.
Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is pushing for a P4.78-billion institutional amendment in the P3.7-trillion national budget for 2019 for an infantry division that will counter threats from armed groups like the Abu Sayyaf.
Lacson, who disclosed this at the bicameral conference committee meeting on the 2019 budget on Monday, said the funding to mobilize the 11th Infantry Division was requested by the Department of National Defense (DND).
“It is an institutional amendment that I introduced, for the activation of an infantry division as requested by the DND,” he said.
Huwag na ang mga guro. Mga nasibak na pulis at sundalo na naging masamang elemento ng lipunan gaya ng gun for hire na lang.
Ito ang naging payo ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police Chief Panfilo Lacson sa ahensiya, matapos lumutang ang balitang isinailalim nito sa “profiling” ang guro na miyembro ng isang organisasyon.
“The PNP should instead conduct profiling and surveillance on dishonorably discharged PNP and AFP personnel to keep track of their post-discharge activities including their lifestyle,” mariing pahayag ni Lacson.
Kung mamo-monitor umano ng PNP ang aktibidad ng mga ito, maraming krimen sa bansa ang mabibigyan ng solusyon, at marami ring krimen ang mapipigilan katulad ng kaliwa’t kanang pagpatay.
“In that way, they may be able to solve a lot of crimes, even preempt them,” dagdag pa ng mambabatas.
Instead of teachers’ groups, the Philippine National Police should train profiling and surveillance efforts on dishonorably discharged police and military personnel who have become guns for hire, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Tuesday.
Lacson, who headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001, cited many cases of such expelled law enforcers being tagged as suspects in recent heinous crimes.
Focusing on these “rejects” – who are likely skilled with firearms and other weapons – can even help solve or even preempt crimes, he stressed.
“The PNP should instead conduct profiling and surveillance on dishonorably discharged PNP and AFP personnel to keep track of their post-discharge activities including their lifestyle,” he said.
“In that way, they may be able to solve a lot of crimes, even preempt them,” he added.
From People’s Journal: Lacson practiced leadership by example when he headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001. Under his watch, the PNP became disciplined and efficient. This in turn earned Lacson and the PNP high approval marks from the public. “It is second to none. There is no substitute to it that I know of,” Lacson said of the principle of leadership by example.

Ito ang naging pahayag ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Panfilo Lacson kaugnay sa mistulang pagtatalaga ng mga nasa hanay ng militar sa Bureau of Customs (BOC), makaraan ang eskandalo sa naipuslit na shabu.
Sa kanyang Twitter post, binanggit ni Lacson na noong dekada 1960, dati nang napangasiwaan ng militar ang BOC at naging maayos umano ang operasyon nito dahil hindi umubra ang mga tangkang panunuhol ng mga smugglers.
Nagkaaberya lamang umano ang operasyon ng ahensiya sa naturang dekada matapos na gumamit ng mga naggagandahang mga kababaihan ang mga nakikipagtransaksiyon sa mga ahensiya.
“In the early 60’s, some young, idealistic AFP officers were put in charge of the BOC operations. They learned fast, they couldn’t be bribed or intimidated. The smugglers used equally young, beautiful women to influence them. The rest is history we don’t want to remember,” pagsisiwalat ni Lacson.
Learn from history, establish a focused counter-intelligence system to curb corruption, and prioritize leadership by example.
These can help the Bureau of Customs curb corruption without having to tap officers from the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Monday.
Lacson, a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class 1971, cited a lesson from the 1960s showing the use of idealistic AFP officers to run the BOC did not work, after the smuggling rings used women to sway them.
