Despatsado na ang siyam na pulis na sangkot sa Jolo shooting incident noong Hunyo 29, 2020 kung saan apat na militar ang namatay.

Ito’y matapos aprubahan ni Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief PGEN Debold M. Sinas ang administrative penalty na dismissal from service ng mga ito.

“With the dismissal from service of the nine respondent PNP personnel, we can no longer hold them beyond the maximum allowable period that is why we sought the immediate action of DOJ to file the appropriate criminal case with the corresponding warrant of arrest,” pahayag ng hepe ng PNP.
