Catanduanes Police Chief Ariel Burage Relieved From Post Due to Controversial Remarks vs Shootout Victims
Catanduanes police chief Ariel Buraga has been dismissed from his post due to his controversial remarks to “My Father is a Policeman” incident.
On Tuesday (December 22, 2020), the Philippine National Police spokesman Police Brigadier General Ildebrandi Usana announced that Bato Municipal Police Station chief Ariel Buraga has been relieved from his post.
Usana said that the cop would still undergo an investigation because of his controversial remarks over Paniqui shooting incident involving Parañaque cop Police Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca and victims Sonya Gregorio and her son Frank.
The cop urged the Filipino people to respect the police authorities at all times. He also said that the Tarlac shooting incident might serve as lesson to everyone that police officers must be respected,
“Lesson learn kahit puti na ang buhok o ubanin na tayo eh matuto tayo rumespeto sa ating mga kapulisan. Mahirap kalaban ang pagtitimpi at pagpapasensya,” Buraga wrote on his post.
Usana said that the PNP has rules and regulations regarding posts on social media. The Bato chief allegedly violated the policy.
