'This is not a resignation in a legal sense…. This is meant to clear their names,' says the spokesperson of the police regional office in Davao

DAVAO ORIENTAL, Philippines – Twenty-three police generals and colonels in the Davao Region have tendered their courtesy resignations to heed the call of Interior Secretary Benhur Abalos for them to start the internal cleansing process in the Philippine National Police (PNP).

Davao Region police director Brigadier General Benjamin Silo Jr. said on Saturday, January 7, that the officials submitted their courtesy resignation papers to assure the people in the region that “we occupy the moral high ground in the PNP’s campaign against illegal drugs.”

Silo said all the police generals and colonels under the police regional office in Davao tendered their courtesy resignations in support of Abalos’ call.

The region has three police generals, including Silo, and 20 full-fledged colonels.
