DILG reacts to FPJAP vs PNP controversy.
FPJAP VS PNP – The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) reacts to issue of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano after PNP raises concern over police corruption.
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Oscar Albayalde raises concern over police corruption included in the top rating Kapamilya show FPJAP top-billed by Coco Martin playing the famous role “SPO2 Ricardo Dalisay“.
“Hindi naman fair sa PNP ‘yung mga ganyang portrayal. Parang ‘yung the chief PNP himself is a villain — hindi naman po siguro kailanman nangyari sa amin. In reality, well, hindi puwedeng mangyari iyan,” the PNP chief complained.
Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) Chief Persida Acosta also complained about the program for using their agency’s logo. Acosta said, “Ginamit ‘yung logo, ‘yan ang sinasabi ni Senator Ping eh, ‘yung paggamit ng mga insignia, ‘yung mga logo. Hindi naman pinagpaalam sa PAO iyan eh.”
Even the Kapuso actress Jasmine Curtis reacts to this as she said, “First was Goyo and a politician. Now it’s a TV series and the PNP. Authorities want tv and film to show “better” things about them…… Hah”
And now, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) reacted to this. DILG Secretary Eduardo Año revealed that the Kapamilya network approached him and recognized that FPJAP is just purely fictional.
According to the report of ABS-CBN, the show does not reflect the reality of life and society. Also, they do not have any plan to dictate the writers on what to write, the flow of the story, and do not aim to make the show stop.
What the DILG is just concerned of is the use of symbols, logo, insignia, and the use of PNP’s uniform.
