Pagdilao calls to fight crimes in the country

PDFPrintE-mail

Amid the unpredictable rise of criminality in the country, the Anti-Crime and Terrorism through Community Involvement and Support (ACTS-CIS) partylist headed by retired general and lawyer Atty. Samuel Pagdilao, Jr., has encouraged local folks in the community to aggressively participate in the campaign against criminals and lawless elements.

Pagdilao passed by the city yesterday going to the of Province of Zamboanga Sibugay, Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte and some towns of Zamboanga Peninsula as part of his entourage campaign sorties.

"ACTS-CIS believes that peace and order is the key to attaining progress. A community where violence, crimes and terrorism rarely occur attracts investments. A community that is free from crime is a community conducive to economic growth which uplifts the standard of living of the people," Pagdilao said in an ambush interview.

Pagdilao revealed with the present monthly honorarium of more or less one thousand pesos for Barangay Tanods. "Papaano mo maaasahan ang mga Tanod na maging kasangkapan o instrumento sa pagpapaganap ng isang tahimik na mamamayan?" he asked.

"We have to elevate their status like a policeman so as people will see them as real agent or persons in authority," Pagdilao continued.

He further said there is a need to pass laws that will address the modern crimes like cybercrimes with lots of defects. "Itataas natin ang kanilang (Barangay tanods) level sa pamamagitan ng training, equipment at sweldo," Pagdilao added.

As a lawyer, police officer and retired Director (General) of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) for 38 years in service, Pagdilao said he is confident that he will be able to eliminate if not minimize criminality in the country with the support of the community.

Assuring that once he seats as ACTS-CIS partylist representative in the Halls of Congress, Pagdilao said he will legislate measures on Juvenile Justice Law. "This is to ensure our young people are protected and not to encourage to be used as an instrument for the commission of the crimes," Pagdilao stressed.

Some of his legislative measures include the strengthening of Witness Protection Program (WPP) as he worked for almost 38 years as police officer.

"There is no enough protection and assistance for those witnesses and their families. Kailangan baguhin yan para mabigyan ng higit na proteksyon at incentives sa ating mga kababayan," Pagdilao said.

He appealed to Zamboangueños not to forget ACT-CIS partylist come May 13, 2013 election. "Ito po ay numero 53 sa balota, ang magbibigay ng kalayaan mula sa krimen sa ating mga komunidad," Pagdilao said.
