The female Special Action Force (SAF) commando who was allegedly caught participating in a shabu session in Taguig City is likely to face dismissal charges, the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) announced yesterday. NCRPO Director Guillermo Eleazar said a probe has already been launched against Police Officer 3 Lynn Tubig, 38.
Once Tubig’s direct participation in the supposed pot session is proven, Eleazar said he will recommend to the Philippine National Police (PNP) SAF the dismissal of Tubig who has been in the police service for 11 years. Eleazar said he has already coordinated with SAF Director Noli Taliño, who told him that Tubig has been AWOL (absent without official leave) for several months already.
Because of this, Tubig has been facing administrative charges for being AWOL, aside from a separate case for grave misconduct, Eleazar said, citing Taliño. Furthermore, a criminal charge will also be filed against Tubig and her two companions in the pot session. (Martin A. Sadongdong)
