LINGAYEN --- The Philippine National Police (PNP) directorate for administration has declared vacant the position of Provincial Police Director of Pangasinan. This was announced by PNP Regional Director, Chief Supt. Ricardo Marquez after coming out from the chamber conference between the counsels of Gov. Amado T. Espino, Jr. and PD Marlou Chan presided over by Judge Caridad Villegas-Galvez of the Regional Trial Court (RTC) branch 69, here. Marquez said Chan was about to be replaced by Sr. Supt. Manuel Velasco who was designated OIC-PD of Pangasinan last June 22, but a sudden call from “higher authorities” aborted the supposed turn-over of command.

Owing to this, Marquez explained in a press briefing that a new list of three recommendees for the position has to be made and submitted to the governor for him to choose from following standard procedures on appointments in the PNP. In the meantime, Chan stays as PD in hold-over capacity until the designation of a replacement, Marquez said. Earlier, with the filing of a petition for preliminary injunction and temporary restraining order (TRO) by Gov. Espino before Galvez’s sala, the Sangguiang Panlalawigan approved a resolution that expressed the body’s “sense of concurrence and support” to the governor’s legal move and, at the same time, urged Chan to step down as police director. This was later followed by another SP measure that declared Chan as “persona non grata.” (PIO/Gerry Oblanca/Angie Villanueva)
