NATIONAL Capital Region Police Office director Major General Debold M. Sinas on Friday led a dialog with officers and members of the Greenhills Muslim Traders Association of the Philippines (GMTAP) to discuss matters including their fight against terror, drugs and criminality and even the COVID-19 pandemic which has affected the country.

Sinas, joined by top NCRPO officials including Eastern Police District director Brigadier Gen. Johnson C. Almazan and Quezon City Police District director Brig. Gen. Ronnie S. Montejo exchanged ideas and suggestions with the Muslim traders led by Kennedy Basmala.

“This is part of our effort to establish good rapport with our Muslim brothers and further help strengthen peace-building measures in Metro Manila and the rest of the country,” the NCRPO director said.

Discussed during the meeting were the anti-terror law, the ongoing Philippine National Police campaign against illegal drugs, specific police operations involving Muslim personalities in the metropolis and updates on COVID-19.

Sinas said that the meeting is serving as a platform for communication between the NCRPO and the GMTAI in order to come up with measures that will be for the benefit of the greater public.

"We are all part of a single community and we share unanimity in hoping for peace and order within our region. We thank the GMTAP for the valuable time you shared with us in recognition of your support to the PNP organization especially Team NCRPO," said Maj. Gen. Sinas at the end of the meeting.
