DBP Backs Public Transport Sector Recovery

DBP is working closely with the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) in finding financial solutions to aid the country's transportation sector due to the difficulties presented by the pandemic.

Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año has designated Lt. Gen. Camilo Cascolan as the officer-in-charge (OIC) of the Philippine National Police following the helicopter crash on Thursday that injured PNP chief, Gen. Archie Gamboa and seven others.

Cascolan will remain PNP OIC until Gamboa is still not on full duty status, he added.

“Yes, not until Gen. Gamboa is on full duty status. I already visited (Lieutenant) General Gamboa this afternoon,” Año said when asked how long would Cascolan’s OIC designation last.

Cascolan is the PNP Deputy Chief for Administration and is considered the number two man in the police organization.

Meanwhile, members of the Special Investigation Task Group (SITG) “Bell 429”, led by Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, PNP Deputy Chief for Operations, will go to the crash site on March 6 to start the probe.

Aside from the task force, the PNP also tapped the help of other agencies, PNP acting spokesman, Maj. Gen. Benigno Durana said.

“Definitely it’s not only the Philippine National Police who will conduct the investigation. They will tap the support and expertise of other agencies particularly the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines para po matingnan lahat ng mga anggulo (to look at other angles),” Durana told reporters in Taguig City.
