SPO3 Ricky Santa Isabel will remain a cop because Philippine National Police Chief Director Gen. Ronald Dela Rosa refused to accept his resignation.
Sr. Supt. Dionardo Carlos of the PNP-PIO made the clarification following Sta. Isabel’s re-appearance and filing a written resignation after he was involved in the alleged kidnapping of Jee Ick Joo in Pampanga.
According to Carlos, Sta. Isabela should have gone through the proper process if he is serious in his intention to leave the police force.
Sta. Isabela is now declared as AWOL, because he did not follow General Bato’s order to submit himself under restrictive custody.
