By MB Online

The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año on Thursday said he has accepted National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Police Major General Debold Sinas’ apology regarding his hosting of a birthday party, but doesn’t mean he will not be held liable for it.

“Yes, tinatanggap ko ang kaniyang apology, but of course, hindi ‘yun nagsasabi na ‘di na siya puwedeng managot. Depende kung ano ‘yung magiging resulta ng investigation,” Año said in an interview on Unang Balita.

“Kilala ko naman ‘yang si General Sinas, seryoso sa trabaho ‘yan. Ang nangyari kasi doon hindi niya rin alam ‘yung set-up na ganoon, sinurprise siya… Pero sa mga ganyan, kailangan muna ng discretion ‘yan…” he added.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) have earlier ordered separate investigations on the controversial birthday party on May 8 of Sinas for violating the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) rules.

In a Facebook post, the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) shared photos of the celebration of Sinas’s birthday, showing him blowing his cake and policemen giving him roses and lining up for the buffet table despite the implementation of the ECQ.
