Lacson says Sinas should face punishment for mañanita controversy

Senator Panfilo Lacson expressed that NCRPO Chief Debold Sinas should face punishment for the mañanita controversy even as President Rodrigo Duterte has already vouched for Metro Manila’s top cop to stay in his position.

Lacson, who formerly served as chief of the Philippine National Police, stated that Duterte gave weight to Sinas’ accomplishments on the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine in NCR, but that he should be held accountable for his actions that violated the country’s social distancing measures during the birthday celebration.

“I agree (with President Duterte) but he (Sinas) should not escape punishment for what he did. The President I think was thinking along the line of what he (Sinas) has done and what he is doing in implementing the ECQ in NCR. I think the President based his decision to retain him mainly on that,” said Lacson.

The senator then stated that Sinas is already facing an administrative case before the IAS (Internal Affairs Service) as well as a criminal case before DOJ (Department of Justice).

President Duterte earlier stated that he will not have Sinas transferred nor dismissed after the controversy.

“He is a good officer, he’s an honest one, and hindi niya kasalanan kung may magharana sa kanya sa birthday niya. At kung ‘yun namang sabi na nakikita hindi naka-mask, eh siyempre may mga meryenda ‘yan, may pagkain. Alangan naman kainin nila pati ‘yung mask. ‘Di tanggalin talaga nila. Kainan iyon eh” said President Duterte, defending Sinas’ actions.
