PNP maintains promotion of Delfin Lee task force head-A A +A
Sunday, March 16, 2014
THE head of the tracker team that arrested housing scam leader Delfin Lee was assigned in Cebu in preparation for a promotion to a one-star general, an official of the Philippine National Police (PNP) said.
"Mula 'nung umupo bilang pinuno ng buong kapulisan si General (Alan) Purisima, inilatag din niya na ang lahat ng nagiging general ay dapat may clear na landas na tinahak, hindi ýung kung saan-saan na unit nanggaling. Nilagyan ng standard path towards being a PNP General," said PNP spokesperson Chief Superintendent Reuben Sindac.
Task Force Tugis head Senior Superintendent Conrad Capa expressed disappointment over his appointment as Deputy Director or Regional Operations for Central Visayas a week after his men nabbed Lee for syndicated estafa charges in a hotel in Manila on March 6.
He said his promotion will not take effect immediately.
"Si General Purisima kumbaga ang ama ng kapulisan at walang ama na maghahangad ng masama para sa kanyang mga anak," Sindac said.
Capa will assume his new post this week. (Third Anne Peralta/Sunnex)
