(BY: REV. BERLIE G. YAP) Partners and friends, it’s again a weekend today and we are about to close the month of September. As you may enjoy your rest and family days until tomorrow, it is eMedia’s reponsibility to keep you abreast of what our City is up to especially in the aspect of our local peace and order.But before so, believe you me, ALL IS WELL.
eMedia’s 6-8 AM “Report del Pueblo” program, hosted by partners GIL Climaco and Rey Bayona Bayoging, had the chance to interview yesterday our City Police Director,Sr. Supt. (Col.) Angelito Casimiro. I’ll hightlight important points.
The traditional Fiesta Pilar will indeed continue and unlike last year which many activities were cancelled because of the seige. Inplaced colorful preparations are also unhindered. However, security forces in the City adviced the religious sectors to limit street activities for security reasons. Said statement was politely iterated by the City Police Director, Sr. Supt. Casimiro, as an official information to the public.
Host GIL Climaco asked further Sr. Supt. Casimiro on the alleged threats that are proliferating as a textmonger and in the social media. Casimiro replied that City policemen and the force multipliers in our baranggays are keeping our Cityand the outskirts24/7 safer. He rest assured that Zamboangueños can sleep well at night.
Casimiro also gladly shared that the police hotline 117 is now upgraded. Would there be emergency, anyone can just call the said hotline and in the quickest possible time our law enforcers will right away be there.
Mr. Climaco asked his second question on the City’s Compreshensive Master Security Plan, if how concrete is it. Casimiro’s reply was not so detailed as obviously some specifics on police matters cannot just be disclosed. However, he mentioned about the contingency of the police and the Armed Forces of the Phils., especially the Philippine Navy, securing our local shorelines.
The big thing he mentioned, as well as a form of a public announcement, on all of the crowd-gathering activities no person shall be allowed to carrybackpacks or motorcycle to draw closer within 100-150 meters in proximity in the “buffer zone”. Even photographers and media personalities cannot do so without valid accreditation pass cards. Strict implementation shall be observed accordingly. This is a precautionary measure on the matters of security for the Fiesta Pilar.
On the other hand, two more police reports prevailed the news yesterday. First, the apprehension of more or less than 2,500 blasting caps in the City wharf 2 days ago. It was a cargo ferried from Jolo, Sulu via a provincial boat plying from the south. Allegedly, such blasting caps are usually used forillegal fishing.
Second, the capture of empty armalite magazines in Recodo as a result of a legitimate operation by our City policemen in Baranggay Recodo. Said empty armalite magazines are a sackful. Along were confiscated uniforms and I.D.s of alleged regular MNLF members. Some ten men were arrested and the rest escaped. You should have heard or seen on TV the explicit report of the eMedia reporter Joseph Zosobrado.
