‘It’s still an issue’: Ogie Diaz, Jasmine Curtis Smith, Saab Magalona, Kean Cipriano disaffirms PNP chief statement on Sinas’ mañanita

“The mañanita, I think, is a closed issue,” said the PNP chief.

PNP chief Police Gen. Archie Gamboa said on Wednesday that the birthday “manañita” incident of Metro Manila police chief Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas is no longer an issue.

“The mañanita, I think, is a closed issue,” said the PNP chief.

Gamboa, however, did not explain his statement further. But he pleaded with the public to stop focusing on the incident and be more understanding of the drawbacks of the law enforcers.

Celebrities and netizens did not share the same opinion that it was a “closed issue.”

Photos of Sinas and friends without masks and no social distancing during a “manañita” to celebrate Sinas’s birthday on May 8 went viral when they were uploaded online.

The Taguig City Prosecutor’s Office charged Sinas and companions a criminal case for violating quarantine protocols stated in the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act and Taguig City Ordinance No. 12 Series 2020 which requires wearing of masks and practice of social distancing.



Meanwhile, Sinas is once again involved in an issue after he, together with his armed police team in camouflage uniform, attempted to forcefully evict the family of the retired Police officer, Arnel Delos Santos from their house at Fort Bonifacio, Taguig on July 19.
