Stressing that the police force in Western VIsayas is a very professional one, PBrig. Gen. Jack Wanky, regional police director, yesterday said that there is no need to conduct a loyalty check.

For us here, I know we are professional. There is no need for it, Wanky stressed in an interview during his visit at Camp Alfredo Montelibano Sr. in Bacolod City.

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. on Thursday vowed to fend off destabilization plots, stressing the government’s focus is developing the countryside and to fight insurgency.

“We will also not allow agents within the country to destabilize our government and create division within our nation,” President Marcos said in a statement issued by Malacañang.

The President also warned that the country’s enemies may be hiding in the shadows, or infiltrating the very communities and institutions that the government seeks to protect.

He said the government will be ready to fight back and implement countermeasures to thwart any nefarious schemes and attempts.

Wanky discouraged policemen in Western VIsayas from entertaining talks of destabilization, if they encounter it.

“Let’s always respect authority and protect the Constitution,” he said.

Former senator Antonio Trillanes IV earlier claimed that high-ranking police officials were recruiting personnel to join an ouster plot.

PNP spokesperson Col. Jean Fajardo said this kind of scheme, no matter how small, would not escape the validation efforts of their intelligence units.

“We have not monitored any police officer who is involved in this so-called destabilization plot and we have not monitored any destabilization plot for that matter,” Fajardo said.

President Marcos also expressed continued trust and confidence in the PNP and the Armed Forces of the Philippines, stressing that he does not need to conduct a loyalty check among their ranks.*
