According to PBGEN ALFRED S CORPUS, RD, PRO12, the campaign against

terrorism is still in full effect as mandated by PRRD. It can be recalled that the president

ordered the strict implementation of ECQ rules and to subjugate trouble makers and

adversaries should they threaten the lives of the frontliners. The president articulated

this on one of his press conference aired nationwide following the incident where the

NPA displayed an act of terrorism and deterrence on the peace treaty of the

government by slaying Security forces escorting the distribution of relief for the needy.

The PNP Chief also laid down his directives pertaining this matter and have

advised the entire force of the PNP to intensify efforts but to perform respective duties

in accordance and respect to human rights and other relevant laws. As such, PBGEN

Corpus commits that PRO12 will continue to enforce ECQ rules strictly and more so in

their campaign against terrorism, illegal drugs and other form of criminalities while

fighting the COVID19 pandemic.

“As we portray our role in the society in this trying times, we risk not only our lives

but also our family’s and those who are dear to us. It Could have been not extremely

difficult as it is now if everyone had the right perspective on things. Be it as it may, we

maintain our foothold in this war. Can we triumph over this war if we join hands, yes

definitely; will we lose some of our heroes in this fight, yes we already have but so be it,

PRO 12 will remain steadfast in fulfillment of our mandates.” RD Corpus said.
