PNP to charge teachers instigating students to rebel against gov’t

The Philippine National Police (PNP) will not hesitate in filing charges against teachers who persuade their students into joining political activities linked to the ouster ploy against President Rodrigo Duterte.

PNP Chief Oscar Albayalde said teachers who will instigate students to overthrow the government will be charged with contempt.

“What if we file charges against the teachers who instigate rebellion among students?They should also be charged [with] contempt,” Albayalde said.

Albayalde said the teachers should be educating the students about nationalism and love of country, not participating in ouster plots against the current administration.

His statements came after the Armed Forces of the Philippines revealed a list of 18 universities and colleges in Metro Manila which are allegedly linked to the Red October ouster plot.
