The 14 police officers who were implicated in the alleged smuggling of mobile phones inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) are now back to work.

NCRPO chief Debold Sinas said the forensic examination result of the PNP-Anti Cybercrime Group investigation showed that the cellphones seized from them are their personal property.

“Lahat po ng cellphones doon ay may interactions, may discussions with their family, friends at ganito so more or less ginamit ito for personal use, wala kaming nakitang irregularity doon,” said Sinas.

With this, Sinas said that the 14 police officers will just be meted out with an administrative case of less serious neglect of duty for not abiding by the specific guidelines in the NBP.

Additionally, the 14 will be assigned to provide security at the SEAGAMES.

The other four officers, including the two senior officials who were confirmed to have been caught in the act of smuggling liquor and cigarettes inside the national penitentiary, will be charged with grave misconduct.

“Tapos na actually ang investigation, hinihintay na lang yung findings ng crime lab na iblack and white nila,” Sinas added. (from the report of Lea Ylagan) /mbmf
