UP President questions presence of armed PNP officers on Diliman campus

UP President Danilo L. Concepcion has sent a letter to Philippine National Police to inquire on the presence of three uniformed and armed PNP officers at the UP Diliman Campus on Wednesday, September 12.

“The UP community is deeply alarmed by this intrusion and the possible reasons for its undertaking, and I am writing to inquire (1) if you or your local superintendents were aware of, and authorized, this visit; and (2) if so, what its official purpose was,” Concepcion asked the PNP chief in his letter.

Concepcion noted that UP, the police, and military authorities have an agreement to observe prior coordination.

And that the objective of the said arrangement is "to prevent any misunderstandings, particularly as UP Diliman has its own police force to deal with minor incidents and disturbances."

“Such sudden and uncoordinated intrusions tend to raise concerns about the repression of civil liberties and human rights, and I hope that you will respond to allay those concerns and assure us that these incidents will not recur under your administration.”

Concepcion related that witnesses said the police officers went to the residence of Student Regent Ivy Joy Taroma, looking for her without disclosing their reasons, then proceeded to Palma Hall.

The witnesses took pictures of the visit and these surfaced on social media, provoking protests from student leaders, including Taroma.  — BAP, GMA News

    “Itong mga institusyon tulad ng PNP, ang kanilang slogan ay Serve and Protect. Pero sino nga ba ang kanilang pinagsisilbihan? Sino nga ba ang kanilang pinoprotektahan?” 
  • PNP should respect the fact that UP has its own police force to deal with its internal matters.

    What if hindi internal matter ang dahilan ng pagpunta nila? What if napadaan lang?
  • UP admin naman gave them benefit of the daw, hence the letter inquiry. But yun nga, if PNP wants something prior coordination is mandated by law mga besh hihi  :bee:

    Under the 1989 Soto-Enrile accord, a tripartite agreement between UP, the Department of National Defense, and the Department of the Interior and Local Government, state security forces are barred from entering university premises.

  • Kaya sa susunod PNP ingat ingat din mga koya :lol: wag sugod basta lalo na at UP Diliman yan ang tahanan ng aktibismo sa bansa.

    Hindi ba dapat ikatuwa ito ng UP dahil dagdag seguridad ito sa campus nila?

    We see law as continuation of politics by other means. We brush aside rules when we have the political strength. We demand respect for law when we do not.

    Cops in UP Diliman not out to arrest, intimidate: PNP chief

  • Avocadude31Avocadude31 Avocado Boy ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    MANILA - Policemen who were spotted earlier this month at the University of the Philippines Diliman campus were not out to arrest or intimidate anybody, the Philippine National Police said Monday.

    UP President Danilo Concepcion, in a letter to the PNP, expressed alarm over the "intrusion" of 3 armed and uniformed policemen in the campus, who reportedly searched for Student Regent Ivy Joy Taroma last Septermber 12, without disclosing their reasons.

    "There was only some sort of a misunderstanding doon dahil iyung pagpunta naman ng PCRG (Police Community Relations Group) doon, for invitation na napakaganda," PNP chief Director General Oscar Albayalde told reporters.

    (The PCRG was there for proper invitation.)

    "It is not to arrest or not to intimidate anybody. Siguro hindi lang nila alam na kailangan muna makipag-coordinate doon,"

    (Perhaps they were not aware that they should coordinate.)

    The police has since explained the reason for their visit to UP officials, Albayalde said, but did not divulge what this was during the press briefing.

    Concepcion earlier said that UP has a "longstanding agreement" with the police and military "to observe prior coordination with each other" regarding visits to campuses to prevent any misunderstanding.

    The university, he noted, has its own police force to deal with minor incidents and disturbances.

    While the PNP recognizes the autonomy of UP, it should "not abuse" the privilege given to it, said Albayalde.

    "Under the constitution, there is only one Philippine National Police -- that is the PNP, that is us. There is no such thing as meron po silang sarili (they have their own)," he said.

    Albayalde said he has directed the PNP legal services division to produce a copy of its memorandum of agreement with UP.
