GATCHALIAN AT KAPIHAN SA SENADO: Senator Sherwin Gatchalian discusses during the Kapihan Sa Senado on Thursday, July 13, 2017, what he calls the “chilling effect” of the decision of the Philippine National Police (PNP) to reinstate Police Superintendent Marvin Marcos and 18 other policemen tagged with the killing of former Albuerta, Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa Sr. Gatchalian said that the move “sends a very bad signal to the scalawags in the police force, which are admittedly, still many.” “We do not want them to be emboldened. What we want is a police force that respects the rule of law, and that abides by the rules of the PNP. We do not want to breed impunity within the PNP,” he said.
