Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Oscar Albayalde ordered at least 11 police personnel who criticized him on social media to be reassigned to Mindanao.

The order was effective Wednesday, May 9, said PNP spokesperson Chief Superintendent John Bulalacao.

The 11 police personnel who were earlier summoned to Albayalde’s office will be reassigned at the Police Regional Office – Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

Albayalde also said earlier that the 11 policemen suspected of criticizing him online will be charged with conduct unbecoming of an officer.

The two cops who failed to show up could also face additional charges for disobedience if they fail again to report to the office.

20 more cops are also suspected of criticizing the PNP chief and could also be summoned to his office in the near future.

Albayalde said the critic-cops were resentful over his surprise inspections, back when he was the director of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO.)
