Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra on Friday (April 23) questioned the move made by Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Debold Sinas who asked the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) to require persons to secure police clearance in all of the agency’s transactions.

Though there are no laws being violated should this be implemented, Guevarra pointed out if this is necessary.

“Although it’s not illegal per se to require a police clearance for certain public transactions, the question is, is it necessary for a particular type of transaction with the DOLE? What purpose will it serve? Does it add to red tape? These are policy, not legal, questions,” said Guevarra.

PNP chief General Debold M. Sinas last March wrote to DOLE Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III asking that police clearance be secured by persons making transactions with the DOLE.

Last March, Sinas wrote to Labor Sec. Silvestre Bello III asking that the DOLE consider requiring persons to secure National Police Clearance (NPC) in all of the department’s transactions.

He boasted that, as of Jan. 19, 55 persons applying for NPC have been arrested after the National Police Clearance System (NPCS) showed that they have outstanding arrest warrants.

Sinas reminded Bello that it the PNP’s “primary mandate of maintaining peace and order, ensuring public safety, and improving its crime solution efficiency in partnership with the community through innovations and utilization of available technologies.”
