President Rodrigo Roa Duterte witnessed the ceremonial turn over of 20 Mitsubishi Sport Patrol Vehicles to Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 on February 12 past 4 PM amid heavy rain brought by tropical storm Basyang.

Pres. Rody Duterte arrived at the PRO 7 Headquarters a few hours after his visit to the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center in Cebu City. Aside from Pres. Duterte, also present during the ceremonial turn-over were Japanese Ambassador Koji Haneda and Special Adviser to the Prime Minister of Japan Dr. Hiroto Izumi.

Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mutsuhiro Oshikiri said in a press statement that they are "delighted to be playing a key role in supporting the work done by local police officers.”

According to PRO 7 out of the 20 vehicles, 10 will go to the Cebu City Police Office, while the Mandaue City Police Office and the Lapu-Lapu City Police Office will get five (5) each.

During the administration of Pres. Rody Duterte, the Japanese government have been helping the government through their donations of high-quality vehicles, particularly the modern Mitsubishi Montero Sports vehicles which cost millions of pesos but way better compared to the Mahindra vehicles purchased during the Aquino administration.

The Japanese donations of patrol vehicles started last 2017, the first batch of 40 patrol vehicles was delivered to Camp Crame last November and the second batch of 26 vehicles were given to the police in Davao City early this year.

The Mitsubishi vehicles are supplied through an agreement between the Japan International Cooperation System and Sojitz Corp. under Japan’s Grant Aid Program. The aid aims to contribute to safety and socioeconomic development, through the provision of local and public counter terrorism and safety-related equipment in the country.
