MANILA, Philippines — Senators Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel and Panfilo “Ping” Lacson urged the Philippine Nationwide Police (PNP) on Wednesday to assessment its new rule barring approved individuals outdoors of residence (APORs) from being taken to or fetched from their locations throughout the enhanced group quarantine (ECQ) interval in Metro Manila.

The observe is often identified in Filipino as “hatid-sundo.”

“IATF (Inter-Company Process Power for the Administration of Rising Infectious Ailments) and PNP must assessment this rule,” Pimentel stated.

“There are some medical doctors who render ‘responsibility’ for 4 consecutive days and NEED TO BE DRIVEN TO AND FROM WORKPLACE. Why make life harder for our frontliners?” he added.

Lacson, a former PNP chief, likewise suggested the police to “at the very least take a re-examination” at limiting the “hatid-sundo” observe for APORs.

Workforce APORs embody medical employees and people working in important institutions like eating places, supermarkets, banks, and the like.

“Hopefully, there can be no sudden restrictions, to a degree of being impractical if not illogical. As a substitute, they might wish to exert a bit further effort to discover a attainable win-win resolution,” Lacson stated, partly in Filipino, in a press release.

“There is perhaps a approach to fulfill each well being issues and a bit comfort for our APORs who must work to feed their households, or render indispensable service to others, like well being employees and different frontliners,” he added.

Earlier, the PNP chief, Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, stated fetching APORs to and from their workplaces wouldn’t be allowed throughout the two-week ECQ in Metro Manila from Aug. 6 to twenty.

Eleazar argued that this sort of observe could be susceptible to “abuse” and is perhaps used as an excuse for non-APORs to exit regardless of the stay-at-home order beneath ECQ.
