Monday, March 31, 2014
TWO members of the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) class of 2014 were not able to participate in Monday's graduation rites after being found guilty of cheating and maltreatment, an official said.
In an interview, PNPA director Chief Superintendent Noel Constantino said two PNPA students were dismissed from the academy since the first semester of school year 2013-2014 after failing to obey the PNPA's Honor Code.
"One was dismissed after mapatunayan na nag-cheat sa exam and the other one was for maltreatment of co-cadets," he said.
Constantino, however, did not identify the two dismissed cadets.
Meanwhile, three cadets have graduated from the academy but will not be able to assume any position in the Philippine National Police (PNP) due to health issues.
"Mayroong may tuberculosis, tapos heart problem tapos 'yung isa color blind at meron din underage," Constantino said.
However, Constantino said the under-age cadet only has to wait until he is 21 while the cadet diagnosed with tuberculosis has to undergo treatment before they can hold a position in the police organization.
"'Yung may heart problem at color blind hindi na talaga sila makakapag assume ng position sa PNP pero graduate sila, 'yung may tuberculosis treatable naman daw kasi within six months," he said.
Some 202 graduating cadets who belong to the Mandirigmang may Dangal at Isipan Laan Para sa Bayan, "Mandilaab" joined the commencement exercises was held Monday at the Camp Castaneda in Silang, Cavite.
President Benigno Aquino III was guest of honor and speaker during the occasion.
