MANILA – Counter-intelligence is the term used to strictly monitor and check on the personnel of a certain organization such as the Armed Forces of the Philippines to ensure there will be no espionage, sabotage within the AFP, or connivance with the enemy such as the Abu Sayyaf group.

AFP spokesperson Brigadier General Restituto Padilla said the military is sure there is no serious threat among soldiers unlike with the arrested female police official who was caught in the company of an alleged ASG member in Clarin, Bohol recently.

“The efforts in checking our ranks for any possible informants or those who can be working with the enemy never seizes, never stops, so it’s done it’s done on a 24/7 basis,” BGen. Padilla said.

The military official also guarantees that any personnel proven to be working with the enemy of the government shall face grave sanctions.

“Kung mayroon man tayong na-identify,na maaaring pagmulan ng mga posibleng maaaring tumulong sa kalaban lagi po itong na-address immediately at the highest priority,” BGen. Padilla added. (When we discover personnel who help enemies of the state, this is addressed immediately at the highest priority.)

Anybody proven to be working with and spying for the government’s enemy will face charges for treason, according to the articles of war or the set of regulations observed by the military forces of the country.

BGen. Padilla also said this is the first time that a high-ranking official of a security force is reported literally dwelling with a terrorist. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue
