PNP seeks free access to UP

Police Gen. Oscar Albayalde, the Philippine National Police chief, called for a review of agreements denying policemen access to schools, particularly the University of the Philippines (UP).

Albayalde maintained that freely giving the police access to schools was one way to prevent communists from recruiting students on campuses nationwide.

At a press briefing on Thursday in Camp Crame, he challenged Anakbayan to answer the accusations of the parents of a missing Far Eastern University senior high school student whom the militant group allegedly recruited and brainwashed.

“They [Anakbayan] should answer the charges and reveal to the parents where they have taken the girl,” Albayalde said.

On Aug. 1, the PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group filed charges of kidnapping, violating the Anti-trafficking in Persons Act of 2003, child abuse, and crimes against international humanitarian law against Anakbayan national president Vencer Crisostomo; secretary-general Einstein Recedes; and members Charie del Rosario, Bianca Gacos and Jayroven Balais.

“Why are they [Anakbayan] blaming us? We are not the ones at fault. They should answer the parents. They should not be saying that this is the government’s scheme. That this is the scheme of the AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines) and the PNP,” Albayalde said, replying to Anakbayan’s claim that the charges were aimed at discrediting activism.
