A New PNP Junket Scandal ?

December 14, 2008


What’s  happening at the Philippine National Police Director General Jesus Versoza?

Public anger over the Euro Generals scandal has not really subsided and now we have reports that a bunch of PNP brass led by ex Metro Manila police boss Geary Barias have just junketed in Munich, Germany on an all-expenses-paid ‘familiarization trip courtesy of a private company.

The Daily Tridune report says “Barias, along with Quezon City Police director Senior Supt. Magtanggol Gatdula, district operations chief Senior Supt. Federico Laciste and District Mobile Force head Senior Supt. Neri Ilagan left for Munich first week of October “to visit and participate in the inspection and observation tour of the facilities of Rohde and Schwarz, an electronics specialist company.”

Rohde and Schwarz, a German electronics company, reportedly shouldered “all travel-related expenses, to include international airfare, meals, and accommodation” of Barias and his group.

Absent any prejudgment, it surely bears serious asking how the trip was arranged and that ‘strings’ were possibly attached? Is the German telecoms maker vying for any PNP project?

If it is,  then Mister B arias has quite a lot of serious explaining to di given the PNP’s less than sqeaky clean record of integrity.

The onus is for Generals Versoza and Barias to give favour the public a credible explanation lest wagging tongues get ahead of the real story.
