What Happened to the P47.6M Missing Allowance of the PNP During Papal Visit?

MANILA, Philippines- The Philippine National Police (PNP) will be conducting an investigation on the missing fund intended for allowance of police officers who were deployed to ensure the safety of Pope Francis during his five-day state and pastoral visit in the Philippines.

Chief Superintendent  Wilben Mayor, PNP’s spokesperson, revealed that they have received information that the police officers only got a partial amount of their supposed P2,400 allowance for January 15 to 19.

According to the information they received, the police officers only received P700, which is less than one-third of their supposed allowance. About 28,000 police were deployed during the mission.

Meanwhile, The Manila Times interviewed several police officers who took part in the mission. One police claimed that they were given P200 upon the Pope’s arrival on Thursday, January 15 and P500 on Saturday, January 17.

“Nagulat kami dahil yung P700 daw na ibinigay sa amin eh yun na daw yun. Paanong nangyari yun eh ang ipinangako sa amin ay P2,400,” said one of the police officers,

Another police officer interviewed by The Manila Times lamented: “Sobrang kakapalan naman kung ibinulsa nila yung allowance na para sa amin. Kami yung nagpakahirap para siguruhin ang kaligtasan ng Santo Papa, tapos bubukulan pa kami. Sobrang katakawan naman yan. Hindi ba sila tinablan sa sinabi ng Santo Papa laban sa corruption.”

In a separate interview conducted by The Manila Times, a certain police officer revealed that their colleagues from the Highway Patrol Group and Engineering Service of Camp Crame received P2,400.


Moreover, several members of the Police Security and Protection Group (PSPG) protested that they had been required to pay P1000 for the issuance of Letter of Order by a superior officer. They insisted that it should be free of charge.

  1. Binigyan nga ng pagkain yung mga pulis sa gitna naman ng kalsada kumain.. Sino ba kumander ng mga pulis na to at di naisip ung mga tauhan nila ay sa gitna ng kalsada kumakain? Pede naman per squad kumain at bigyan ng 20 minutes saka bumalik sa pwesto.. Wala namang tao sa magkabilang kalsada na kailangan bantayan.. Oo alam natin na ung mga pulis o militar ay trained na kahit patiwarik pwede kumain pero kunting paggalang sana sa pagkain.

    Yung pundo sana di nawala. Kapapa-alala lang ng Santo Papa sa kanyang speech sa Malakanyang na wag maging kurakot, wala pa ngang isang linggo merong anomalya na kaagad. Ano ba yan?

  2. Sabi nila, depende daw sa # of hours ng duty ng mga Pulis. Putek! Kahit na hindi nakumpleto ang duty hours nila, sa hirap ng ginawa nila nung mga panahon na yun dapat PHP2400 pa rin! Agree ako kay RDD dapat talaga PHP5000 yan!

  3. Buti nga yung iba may natanggap na kahit papaano, bakit hindi nyo tanungin RPSB NCRPO and from other Regions at PPOs contingent kung meron na sila kahit 700… negative ang sagot sa inyo, at si Sir Eco na nagsalita para sa tropa, ayun nasa CARAGA na….

  4. hanggat di napaparusahan ang mga opisyal ng pnp na kurakot di magbabago ang systema ng buong kapulisan…tataas ang rangko mo mapupunta naman sa tax lang.
