Policemen violating quarantine should not be allowed to get away with their offenses.

Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has called for the punishment of Metro Manila’s chief of police Major General Debold Sinas and other policemen over the controversial birthday gathering despite the strict lockdown measures.

Gatchalian said the cops can be forced to do push-ups, sit under the sun, or do community service as penalties for alleged quarantine violations.

“Pili kayo: push up, jumping Jack’s, bilad sa araw, seminar on COVID or community service,” he tweeted.

Gatchalian said public servants should lead by example by following the quarantine regulations during the coronavirus pandemic.

“When the whole country is at a loss on how to cope with the pandemic, more so, public servants should serve as an example to the struggling public,” he said.

Sinas has drawn widespread criticism over his birthday celebration that supposedly violated quarantine rules such as social distancing as well as a ban on large gatherings. He has apologized for the incident but pointed to his fellow officers for surprising with him the “mañanita” or their traditional early birthday welcome. His superiors have defended him, insisting there was no actual birthday party.

Photos of the birthday party were posted on Facebook page of the National Capital Region Police Office-Public Information Office (NCRPO-PIO) . The posts were later taken down following criticisms on the alleged selective justice given to cops despite the enhanced community quarantine imposed in Metro Manila.

Malacañang has announced that Sinas will face a criminal case over the alleged quarantine violation.
