Director Oscar Abayalde, chief of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), has ordered a thorough investigation on document-handling at the Valenzuela City police over the leakage of a confidential intelligence report.
The leaked intelligence report from the Intelligence Branch of the Valenzuela Police Station supposedly instructs community precinct commanders to conduct target-hardening measures and intensify police visibility due to a plan of a terror group to carry out bomb attacks in several areas in Quezon City, Manila and Makati.
Dated June 16, the memorandum with subject “Planned Bombing in Metro Manila” also mentioned some names of supposedly persons affiliated with the Maute Group planning to sow terror in the metropolis.
Albayalde would neither confirm nor deny the existence of the police document from the Valenzuela City police but assured the public that intensified security measures are in place in Metro Manila.
“Related to the content, we assure the public that we do not take for granted any information reported to us. We process every information received and task our police on the ground to validate all these so that we will be able to address any threat immediately and appropriately,” said Albayalde.
“We reiterate our call that security is everyone’s concern, while we give due respect to freedom of expression, let us be vigilant by not spreading news or information that may cause undue alarm to the public at large,” he added.
He also requested the public not to share the document until such time that they have fully verified its content.
