Ping: PNPA Sex Scandal, Pang-Sampol sa Anti-Hazing Law

May paggagamitan na ang talas ng bagong Anti-Hazing Law o Republic Act 11053 upang malaman ang pagiging epektibo nito.

Ayon kay Senador Panfilo Lacson na dati ring pinuno ng Philippine National Police (PNP), isang kongkretong halimbawa ng kaso na puwedeng paggamitan ng naturang batas ay ang naganap na sex scandal sa Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA).

Ang oral sex bilang parusa sa mga nagkamali o nagkasala na kadete ng PNPA ay malinaw upang paglabag sa naturang batas kung pagbabatayan ang mga nilalaman nito, ayon sa mambabatas.

“In this case, the cadets involved will have the distinction of being the first to be convicted under the new law,” banggit ni Lacson.

Lacson: PNPA Scandal a Test Case for New Anti-Hazing Law

The recent scandal that rocked the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) would be a test case for Republic Act 11053, the new Anti-Hazing Act of 2018, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said.

Lacson said the scandal, which reportedly involved cadets forcing freshmen to perform oral sex as a form of punishment, is considered hazing under the new law.

“In this case, the cadets involved may have the distinction of being the first to be convicted under the new law,” he said.

Lacson Pushes Transfer of Police Recruits’ Training to PNP

To make sure its new recruits learn to uphold the law instead of violating it, it is high time the Philippine National Police take full responsibility – and accountability – for their training.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson, who headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001, stressed this over the weekend, adding this should greatly help in the police force’s internal cleansing.

“In past months, we have seen how police officers, many of them non-commissioned ones with the ranks of PO1 and PO2, had been involved in heinous crimes. Itโ€™s about time we revisit the law to make the PNP the premier educational and training institution for our policemen and policewomen,” Lacson said.

Lacson is to sponsor this coming week Senate Bill 1898, which amends Sections 66 and 67 of Republic Act 6975. The present law mandates the Philippine Public Safety College to train police personnel.

Lacson: Pagsasanay sa mga baguhang pulis ipapaubaya na sa PNP

Ganap nang umusad sa Mataas na Kapulungan ng Kongreso ang panukalang masawata ang mga pang-aabuso at kriminalidad na kadalasan ay kinasasangkutan ng mga bagitong miyembro ng Philippine National Police (PNP).

Sa darating na linggo kasi ay nakatakda nang i-sponsor ni Senador Panfilo M. Lacson sa plenaryo ang Senate Bill 1898 na naglalayong ipaubaya na lamang sa PNP ang pagsasanay at pagtuturo laban sa kriminalidad ng mga baguhang tauhan ng ahensiya.

“In past months, we have seen how police officers, many of them non-commissioned ones with the ranks of PO1 and PO2, had been involved in heinous crimes. Itโ€™s about time we revisit the law to make the PNP the premier educational and training institution for our policemen andย policewomen,” paliwanag ni Lacson tungkol sa naturang panukala.
