PNP: Plunder should be charged to Courier System
By Russell Jay Manglicmot
Philippine National Police (PNP) said on Thursday that the courier system used in license delivery may be the lone orchestrator of plunder scheme.
PNP Spokesperson William Mayor said on a press briefing that WerFast Inc., Courier System, should invented the whole scheme without their knowledge.
"Kung ang intention ng isang liderato ng isang gobyerno ay maayos pero nagkamali
ang kumpanya dahil sa sistema n'ya on his own, then I think it should not be attributed to the government agency," he said.
Mayor further said that the company's fault should not be attributed to the PNP.
WerFast courier allegedly charges P190 for the delivery, then hands the parcel to LBC, on which Werfast only pays P90. A hundred-peso difference of which would benefit WerFast.
The scheme was discovered by a certain Glenn Gerald Ricafranca, the Barangay Captain of Capabtawan, Legazpi City Albay.
Ricafranca further filed a complaint in the Office of the Ombudsman on April 16 against PNP Chief Director Gen. Purisima, and Chief Superintendent Napoleon Estilles, the head of the Firearms and Explosives Office (FEO).
In the contrary, WERFAST is not included in the complaint.
He discovered that he and the other licencees received a parcel handled by LBC, not WerFast, which should be handling it according to a Memorandum of Agreement dated May 2011 without any bidding.
