THE Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 welcomed the pronouncement of President Rodrigo Duterte for the media to accompany operatives during police operations.
PRO 7 Director Jose Espino said that members of the media can act as witnesses during police operations.
“The media can be there after the operation (and) also to act as witnesses,” Espino said.
Espino said that even before the order of Duterte, members of the media were welcome to accompany the police during operations.
Duterte’s order was issued for “transparency” after the killing of Kian Delos Santos, 17, last month. (JOB)
