Chief Superintendent Lina Sarmiento, chief of the PNP Police Security and Protection Group, said that in line with Commission on Elections Resolution 8714, all deployed security escorts were immediately recalled on Sunday and were brought back to their main units at their respective police headquarters.

Sarmiento said this was the first time all security escorts were ordered recalled for accounting. However, she assured all individuals, especially witnesses and kidnap victims, that the PNP would not abandon them.
"We cannot abandon them. Those that are securing, we will not abandon them. [The recall] is just one way of forcing them to immediately apply [to the Comelec]," she added.
Under Comelec Resolution 8714, the letter orders issued to security escorts were cancelled leaving them unauthorized to serve as security detail to officials or VIPs.
"There is a need to account or inventory all PSPG personnel considering that without the necessary letter order, the [security escorts] are not anymore authorized to serve as security detail to their respective VIPs and that officially they are now assigned back to their respective PSPG units," Sarmiento said.
Sarmiento said that applicants, regardless if they are candidates or private individuals, should first seek the approval of the Joint Security Control Center of the Comelec before they could again acquire police escorts.
The application for police escorts and other security personnel began on January 10. Each applicant must pay a filing fee of P5,000 addressed to the Comelec when applying for a security escort.
At the same time, Sarmiento said she has met with representatives from the House of Representatives, Senate, and other diplomatic and consular services to discuss the existing Comelec resolution as well as the process in applying for security escorts.

During the Arroyo administration, when Sarmiento was part of the PNP Human Rights Office, 152 women were women victims of extrajudicial killing, 31 women were disappeared, while 290 women were illegally arrested and detained," said Cristina Palabay, Tanggol Bayi co-convenor.

While it is important to promote the substantive and democratic participation of women in all political processes, the appointment of Sarmiento does not, at all accounts, indicate that the poor, marginalized and disadvantaged Filipino women who suffered and struggled during the Martial Law period will attain justice, with a representative of their oppressors at the helm of the claims body," Palabay said.
