WHEREAS, PSSUPT NICOLAS TORRE III is allegedly engaged in a partisan political activity when he provides services only to a well-known political personality in the province of Samar. His police service…particularly in the City of Calbayog is tainted with doubt as to his campaign against crimes and maintain peace and order flunk with the recent heinous killing in Brgy. Catabunan, Oquendo District, Calbayog City, and the barbaric beheading of farmer in Brgy.

Rodrigo Duterte and the entire PNP as regard to the current peace and order situation in the city, including the continues (sic) threat and intimidation from the armed group and the increasing number of unresolved crimes in the city.(CJ)
