• PNP opens bank account for SAF 44 donations


    THE Philippine National Police (PNP) on Monday said that it has set up another account with the Land bank of the Philippines (LBP) to receive the cash donations intended for the 44 members of the Philippine National Police-Special Action Force (PNP-SAF) who were killed in the Mamasapano, Maguindanao carnage over a week ago. PNP Spokesman Generoso Cerbo Jr. said in a statement that the donations to the families of the late policemen maybe deposited to the account “PNP Special Assistance Fund Account 1862-1027-77”. Cerbo added that donors may contact Chief Insp. Renante Pinuela of the PNP Directorate for Comptrollership (DC) at mobile number 09178576020 for other inquiries on how to extend their donation for the said families. The donations will be in line to the benefits that will be given to the surviving kin of SAF casualties. Meanwhile, 11 of the 13 PNP-SAF members injured in the alleged misencounter in Maguindanao last January 25 are still undergoing treatment at a hospital in Metro Manila while two still remain in Cotabato City. Cerbo said in a chance interview by Camp Crame reporters that the PNP will shoulder all the medical expenses of the wounded and injured SAF personnel. He added that even the benefits of the wounded law enforcers will immediately be handed over to them. Those who sustained major injuries will receive P100,000 and those with minor injuries will be receiving P50,000. This excludes other assistance coming from other government agencies. Cerbo also said adding that it is not yet clear if the 13 wounded PNP-SAF men will be given a rank promotion saying this is under deliberation.
