Following rape and death threats directed at Ana Patricia Non, the Philippine National Police had earlier this week offered to provide protection to the Maginhawa community pantry organizer.
Police force chief Guillermo Eleazar encouraged Non to file a complaint and said that she could avail of law enforcement services, which would include a security detail.
“Nakahanda po ang PNP na tulungan si Ms. Non lalo na kung may banta sa kanyang buhay,” Eleazar declared in a statement. “Maaari siyang dumulog sa pinakamalapit na police station para ireport itong mga threats na natatanggap niya at agad na maiimbestigahan ng ating kapulisan kung sino ang gumagawa ng mga ito.”
Non previously revealed that she had been receiving death and rape threats when her number was being used to order food deliveries online without her knowledge.
The PNP chief said that authorities would probe the matter as well as her alleged red-tagging, which Non points to as the reason for online harassment. Eleazar said that the Anti-Cybercrime Group could also track down the culprits.
