Lifestyle check on cops ‘good idea’ – Palace
By Prince Golez
Malacañang supports the conduct of lifestyle check for the police force.
A lifestyle check on police officers is a “good idea,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said Monday.
“I think that’s a good idea. There should be an internal lifestyle check among the PNP members, and for that matter, all heads of department,” added Panelo.
Earlier, Senator Richard Gordon called for a lifestyle check on Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Oscar Albayalde and the 13 policemen involved in the alleged recycling of confiscated illegal drugs.
Panelo said the Internal Affairs Service of the PNP should initiate the lifestyle checks.
“Head dapat, ‘di ba. In PNP for instance, there is so-called internal intelligence ba iyong tawag … internal affairs. Dapat sila,” he added.
