District 1 congressional candidate Cesar Climaco, Jr., yesterday went to the Zamboanga City Police Office to follow-up hisrequest for police escort from City Police Director Sr. Supt.Edwin De Ocampo.
“I already wrote a letter to his (De Ocampo’s) office a couple of weeks ago regarding same query and no reply has been received from him. And now, I am back here in his office to give another letter requesting for police escort,” Dr. Climaco said.
Reportedly the congressional candidate of LP for District 2, Jomar Lobregat, was seen with police and military escorts as he goes house-to-house in Brgy. Tagasilay.
‘I was requesting for police escorts same as what Jomar did, and so, I am here in your office to inquire as to how can I have even just one escort to accompany us during the campaign,” Dr. Climaco asked the police officer next to De Ocampo since the latter was not around.
The police officer said to Dr. Climaco that if he wanted an escort or somewhat a police protection, since he is a political candidate, he must request from the Comelec office.
“I also sent a letter request to the Comelec yet they said that they are not the ones who provide the security escorts,” Dr. Climaco.
Now, he’s still waiting for Sr. Supt. De Ocampo’s reply to his query and hoping for a quick response from the authorities. — KCL
