The Manila Times-Oct 7
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Oscar Albayalde is fast becoming an annoyance for speaking out of turn and sometimes, out of tune. Last week, he overstepped his boundaries when he warned teachers they could be held liable for “imputing” (sic) “false information” to their students. Albayalde’s laughable statements came after the equally laughable revelations by the military’s assistant deputy chief of staff for operations, Brig. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr., that linked 18 colleges and universities to the so-called “Red October” plot to oust President Rodrigo Duterte.
