MANILA, Philippines – Paranaque City police chief P/Col. Renato Ocampo told journalists in print, radio and television to immediately report to the police the death threats they receive for their protection.
In the dialogue that took place before noon this Friday, October 7 between the Parañaque police led by Ocampo and members of the media was also based on the order of President Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr. that the police contact journalists to find out if they have received death threats or intimidation related to their work.
Ocampo also advised the journalists who attended the dialogue to notify the police early of the threats they receive so that they can be immediately addressed and take appropriate action before anything bad happens.
At the same time, Ocampo also gave what journalists should do if they receive a threat to their lives.
According to Ocampo, the participation of the media in the community is important because they provide information to the public on the daily happenings in different corners of the country as well as reporting the good deeds done by the police.
Ocampo also suggested to the journalists in attendance the existence of a monthly gathering of members of the Paranaque police and the media to further strengthen the association of the two groups that will help promote the security of every Filipino citizen.
The interaction of the Philippine National Police (PNP) with members of the media was ordered by PBBM following the incident of the ambush of radio broadcaster and commentator Percival Mabasa better known as Percy Lapid this past Monday, October 3 in Las Philippines City. James I. Catapusan
