Is the country now under dictatorial regime?

Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has slammed a police official for snatching a reporter’s phone while recording a police clash with Black Nazarene devotees.

The phone was eventually returned to GMA-7 reporter Jun Verneracion but the video of the Traslacion incident was supposedly deleted.

“Wala naman mali dito sa video na ito. May magulo, at hinuli ng mga pulis. Bakit pa dinampot and binura ang video sa cellphone? Over reacting ang pulis general,” Gatchalian tweeted.

“Nag mukhang censorship tuloy. Parang na sa dictatorial regime tuloy tayo. Hindi tama na binura ang video ng reporter,” he said.

Southern Police District director Brig. Gen. Nolasco Bathan has already apologized for confiscating the phone of Veneracion, saying he thought he posed a threat.
