Mayor Fred Lim Refused Rosales as Manila Police Chief

Newly elected Manila Mayor Fred Lim disallow the move of President Arroyo of assigning director Chief Superintendent Roberto Rosales as chief of Manila Police District on current MPD director Senior Superintendent Danilo Abarzosa’s position.

According to Lim, Abarzosa should not be replaced for he’s doing a good job. He’s been satisfied with his performance on the anti-drug campaign, particularly the raid on the drug den in Intramuros and the demolition of “Little Vietnam” in Quiapo.

Lim was apparently surprised by the sudden announcement of PNP chief Director General Oscar Calderon that effective Wednesday Rosales will be designated as officer-in-charge (OIC) of MPD while Abarzosa was selected as the new superintendent of the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) based in Silang, Cavite.

Rosales is known as strict disciplinarian which matches Mayor Fred Lim’s method of dealing with criminals and drug pushers.
