Fama eyeing China post

Senior Supt. Harris Fama, former acting police provincial director of Negros Oriental, is considering an overseas post in China as offered by PNP Chief, Director General Ronald Dela Rosa.

Fama bade farewell to the Negros Oriental PNP yesterday and said that dela Rosa had called him personally and offered the post of police attaché to China.

Dela Rosa told him to pack up and go, and nobody could say “no” to the PNP Chief, Fama said.

Initially, he will be assigned to the Directorate for Intelligence at Camp Crame but he is hoping to get the position in China, which was vacated July 1 by another police officer, he added.

He describes his transfer as an opportunity to enhance his professional career in the PNP as he expressed optimism that his background, exposure and experience will qualify him for the Beijing-based assignment.

Fama's relief from the Negros Oriental PNP was dated July 5, 2016 but according to him, he received the official word only recently.

The original schedule for his departure was on Wednesday but it was moved two days ahead. Also, Fama's original replacement was changed for unknown reasons.

Fama had announced earlier that his replacement would be Senior Supt. Rommel Cabagnot, however, the latest word he got was that Senior Supt. Nestor Tiempo from Camp Crame would instead be assigned in Negros Oriental.

If he gets the Beijing post as police attaché, he will be assigned with the Philippine ambassador to China, “doing some police duties” and assisting in the law enforcement side if a Filipino gets involved in a case, Fama explained.

If he gets the diplomatic post, it will be Fama's first overseas assignment, he said.

He was assigned in Negros Oriental in January this year, and had contributed largely in the success of concerted efforts among different agencies, like the Commission on Elections, the PNP, the Philippine Army, and the Diocesan Electoral Board for peaceful and orderly elections May 9.

Meanwhile, Fama turned over some three thousand U.S. dollars (P120,000) worth of books during the flag-raising ceremony and farewell address, at the Negros Oriental PNP headquarters at Camp Fernandez, Agan-an in Sibulan town, yesterday morning.

He said it is a regular activity for him to donate books at the different posts he has been assigned at.

He also extended his gratitude to the men and women of the PNP in Negros Oriental as well as other sectors, government and private, for their support and contribution to anti-criminality, and peace and order efforts.

Also, Fama led the signing of a pledge of commitment on a tarpaulin in the vast campaign against illegal drugs under Oplan TokHang and Project Double Barrel.*JFP
