フィリピン警察 ECQ違反者により寛容な態度

フィリピン警察は、マニラ首都圏でECQを実施するにあたり、違反者に対し最大限の寛容さを発揮すると述べました。違反者の逮捕は、「最終手段」のようです。

フィリピン国家警察のEleazar長官によると、国境管理地点に配置されている警察は、車の運転者が居住地外許可者(APOR)の規則に違反していることが判明した場合、通行を拒否することができるといいます。また規約を遵守せず、自宅待機命令に従わない者に対しては、地方条例が適用されるようです。しかし、基本的には最大限の寛容さをもって、市民の権利を尊重すると述べています。

これまでの厳しい規制に国民の我慢も限界となっているでしょう。感染拡大防止と経済活動、さらに国民の満足の両立のため、寛容さも求められます。

PNP vows to exercise maximum tolerance vs health protocol violators during ECQ

MANILA (UPDATE) – The country’s top cop said Friday police officers would exercise maximum tolerance as they start implementing protocols under the enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila.

In an interview on ANC’s Rundown, Philippine National Police chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar said arresting health protocol violators would be the last resort.

“Kung talagang insisting ang mga ‘yan lalo na kung meron talagang disobedience, obstruction and related criminal offenses then we will arrest them,” said Eleazar
.
Eleazar said that police manning border control points could just deny motorists passage if they are found to be violating the rule on Authorized Person Outside Residence (APOR) while local ordinances would be imposed on those who don’t comply with health protocols and defy the stay-at-home order.

“But basically maximum tolerance and we will respect the rights of each citizens,” he said.

Metro Manila is now under ECQ until August 20 to mitigate the spread of COVID-19’s highly transmissible Delta variant.

The PNP previously said that non-APORs are banned from driving for APORs. But following public clamor against the rule, Eleazar said they consulted with the National Task Force and this was eventually reversed.

“But naglagay tayo ng restrictions that the employers of these worker APOR should provide a certification showing the certificate of employment of the worker APOR, indicating also the name of the non-APOR driver to include its vehicle. Ilagay na rin natin doon ‘yung copy of the business permit para malaman natin na talagang itong establishment na ito is part of the permitted industries,” he said.

(They should also include there a copy of their business permit for us to know if they are part of the permitted industries.)
