Sen. Grace Poe Defends "Ang Probinsyano": (Anong Klaseng Kalayaan Meron Tayo)

Sen. Grace Poe, the daughter of the late action star and considered as the original Ang Probinsyano, Fernando Poe Jr. came to the rescue of the hit TV series "Ang Probinsya" after a reported misunderstanding between the PNP and DILG with the casts of the hit TV series and the portrayals of some characters.



According to Sen. Poe, there is no need to be in a hurry as she questioned the DILG on their plans to take some legal action against the hit TV series after some controversial scenes featuring the corrupt PNP chief and abusive members of the Presidential Security Group.



The senator was quoted as saying "Kailangan ba palitan din ng konti ang istorya para walang magmukhang masamang pulis, [walang] magmukhang masamang government official? Anong klaseng kalayaan meron tayo? ‘Pag may ginagampanan na senador na corrupt sabihin na natin, kailangan ba namin ipapigil yun?” Poe said in a interview with AM radio station DWIZ.

[Does the story have to be change a bit so that no police officer or government official would look bad? What kind of freedom do have? If someone, for example, plays a corrupt senator, do we have to stop it?]

Meanwhile, according to DILG Assistant Secretary Jonathan Malaya they would impose sanctions against the show – such prohibiting the use of PNP uniforms, properties and the ininitals “PNP.”

According to DILG Secretary Eduardo Año, TV series gives a “wrong message” to the public in its portrayal of police officers.



Sen. Grace Poe on her defense of her family's vast holdings, she said that she would respect DILG sanctions on the show. But she noted how the show brings happiness to the public.

“‘Eh di mag legal action sila. Karapatan nila yun. Ako naman, ang daming problema ng DILG. Siguro naman pwedeng pagbigyan na nila ang konting kaligayahan ng ating kabababyan,” she said.

The veteran lawmaker added further "Ang showbiz halimbawa nagbibigay ng trabaho sa milyung milyong kababayan natin. Pangalawa, ito ang isa sa pinakamurang aliwan ng ating mga kababayan na napapanood nila,” she said.
