CITATIONS AND LIABILITIES:
As chief policymaker of the police organization, Senator Panfilo M. Lacson was responsible for the serious reforms in the PNP that had won the confidence of businessmen and foreign investors and the cooperation of the general public when he initiated closer coordination with other law enforcement agencies, here and abroad, in the fight against narcotics trafficking through supply constriction and demand reduction.
All of these were accomplished to bring back the old glory of the policeman.
He joined the Philippine Constabulary - Integrated National Police Anti-Carnapping Task Force in 1986, and in 1988, be became the provincial commander of Isabela until 1989. That same year, he became provincial director of Laguna and held the post until July 1992.
To date, Senator Lacson is working on legislation to fight the problem of terrorism through the passage of the Anti-Terrorism bill and to alleviate the condition of various sectors of society including students, contractual workers, barangay tanods, police, military and fire protection personnel. Cited by a well-known psychic Danny Atienza as the one who has changed for the better the Philippine National Police under his (Lacson’s) leadership.
His liabilities include:
Involvement in the Kuratong Baleleng Rubout Case; alleged involvement in the proliferation of “jueteng” and acceptance of “jueteng payola” (according to Gov. Singson).
His alleged involvement in the abduction of the well-known PR Man Bubby Dacer.
STAND ON CHARTER CHANGE ISSUE:
For Senator Panfilo Lacson, the attempt by Malacañang’s allies in the Lower House to short-circuit Charter change through a Con-Ass “is nothing short of constitutional rape.”
Lacson said words are no longer enough to describe what he called the unconscionable act by pro-administration lawmakers to do away with their House rules in their rush to amend the Constitution.
He said that in Tuesday’s evening session that lasted until Wednesday, pro-Malacañang lawmakers threw away all pretensions about being an independent co-equal branch of government.
“Whatever sense of decency left in them, they threw it out of the window last night. Like thieves in the night, they pounced upon the unsuspecting citizenry just as it was fast asleep,” he said.
Despite their failure to achieve their goal before dawn Wednesday, members of the Lower House suspended their session and were to resume session Wednesday afternoon.
Lacson said while Malacañang and its allies can dream on about their so-called “final push” for Con-Ass, they must wake up to the reality of defeat in the May 2007 elections.
He maintained that a Con-Ass will require both Houses of Congress to separately issue resolutions for a joint session.
Lacson reiterated he is willing to join other senators in filing a petition with the SC questioning the move of Malacañang and its allies in the Lower House to convene into as Con-Ass without the Senate.
