In response to a complaint regarding police officers involved in an altercation at Club 88 in Iloilo City’s Mandurriao district, Police Regional Office-6 (PRO-6) director, Police Brigadier General Rene Pamuspusan announced the involved law enforcement officials have been suspended for 59 days after being found liable for neglect of duty.
He identified the officers as Police Chief Master Sergeant Jose Dingal, Police Master Sergeant Fernie Mark Mallorca, and Police Staff Sergeant Ralph Mabuque.
The regional police official cited National Police Commission Memorandum Circular 2016-002, which defined neglect of duty, or nonfeasance, as the omission or refusal to perform an act or duty without sufficient excuse. Considering the officers in question were charged with “less grave neglect of duty,” the policy defines the charge as failure to comply with any lawful order or instruction by a superior officer or the chief of police.
According to the complaint filed last July by Regional Investigation and Detective Management Division chief, Police Lt. Colonel Pablito B Asmod, Jr., a certain “Madam I” identified the three police officers as the individuals involved in an altercation on June 25, 2019 that contested their bill, which led to police being dispatched to the scene.
Last January, then-Philippine National Police (PNP) Director-General Oscar Albayalde reminded PNP personnel that they are prohibited from drinking at karaoke bars, nightclubs, pubs, and other public places./WDJ

PRO-6 director, Police Brigadier General Rene Pamuspusan, said the law enforcement officials involved in an altercation at Club 88 in Iloilo City’s Mandurriao district have been suspended for 59 days after being found liable for neglect of duty.
