MANILA – Four police station commanders of the Manila Police District (MPD) were sacked due to poor performance, an official said Wednesday.
MPD chief Supt. Isagani Genabe Jr. said Supt. Wilson Doromal of Station 11, Supt. Amante Taro of Station 8, Supt. Orlando Mirando of Station 5, and Supt. Ricardo Layug of Station 3 were dismissed from service after scoring low in their respective assessments.
Doromal was the replacement in Station 11 in Binondo of Supt. Alexander Navarette, who was earlier sacked by Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada due to of the proliferation of illegal vendors on roads in his area of jurisdiction.
Earlier this year, Estrada ordered the relief of Supt. Reynaldo Nava, MPD Traffic Enforcement Unit head; and Supt. Ernesto Tendero Jr. of Station 2 for his failure to solve the heavy traffic situation in his jurisdiction.
Genabe said the removal of underperforming police officials is part of the efforts of the Estrada administration to bring back the glory days of the Manila Police. – report from Noel Alamar, dzMM
