No More Warnings on Violators if Still Disobey Under ‘Martial Law-Like’ ECQ
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief police General Archie Francisco Gamboa said that there will be no more warnings if violators still disobey under ‘Martial Law-Like’ ECQ.
On Monday, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief police General Archie Francisco Gamboa said if the national government decides to enact a martial law-like ECQ, authorities will not issue warnings against violators.
“Kung ito ay matutuloy, it will really be full implementation of the law and wala na tayong warning, diretso na tayo sa aresto,” Gamboa said in an interview of GMA News.
“So kung talagang tutuluyan ito, we can charge them of so many violations existing ngayon [against] Bayanihan Act No. 11332 then meron pa ‘yung Revised Penal Code. Siguro magpakita dapat ang publiko na mag-behave sila para hindi ito matuloy,” Gamboa said.
Based on the report, Gamboa had previously said that the police organization was ready in case Duterte decided to let the military forces take place during the health crisis.
However, the PNP chief has promised to observe and respect human rights in the implementation of the rules and regulations of the community quarantine that is expected to expire on April 30.
Earlier, President Rodrigo Duterte warns stubborn violators that if they still disobey the guidelines he will implement “Matial Law Like” enhanced community quarantine. He also readies police and military forces to enforce the stricter ECQ guidelines.
