Trillanes: Cops and soldiers pay hike because of Aquino, not Duterte

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV recently said that the increase in the salaries of the country’s policemen and soldiers was not because of the efforts of the Duterte administration, rather that of the Aquino administration.

He said that it was due to an executive order that former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III signed during the last months of his seat in office.

Our military and police personnel should be aware that their allowances, together with the salaries of all government employees, have significantly increased since 2016, and will continue to increase until 2019," said Trillanes.

"This increase is actualized by EO 201 signed by the previous administration. President Duterte has nothing to do with this. His promise to double the salaries of soldiers and policemen remains an unfulfilled promise," he added.

He said that the salaries of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police is increased because of former president Aquino’s Executive order 201.

The EO 201 dictates that military, police and other uniformed personnel will receive an increase in their monthly salary. The hike is about P546 to P35,260; hazard pay, amounting to P570; and officers’ allowance, ranging from P3,000 to P18,000.

All these information came from the statement released by Trillanes.

Trillanes released his statement after Marine Col. Edgard Arevalo, chief of the Armed Forces’ Public Affairs Office thanked the Duterte administration for the salary increase.
