Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque Says Crime Videos May Speed Up Process Resolving Criminal Cases
Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said that videos of crime incidents may help to speed up resolving criminal cases.
Earlier, the Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Debold Sinas advised the public to refrain taking photos or videos of crime incidents or uploading it on social media.
Sinas said that if there are videos or photos as evidence, owner must present it directly to the police authorities instead of posting it online. He also explained that suspects could retaliate to the uploader.
The PNP chief’s statement came after Police Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca shoots Sonya Rufino Gregorio and her son Frank Anthony during an altercation due to misunderstanding.
On Tuesday (December 22, 2020), Harry Roque said that a video of the crime incident is very important for documentation although he acknowledge that it will put the life of witness at stake.
“Nandiyan po ang teknolohiya para mapabilis po ang paglilitis noong mga lumalabag sa batas, Kaya rin po tayo napakadaming CCTV sa lansangan para makita natin kung sinong gumagawa ng krimen lalung-lalo na iyong issue ng identification,” Roque said.
