Manial, Philippines – Broadcaster Erwin Tulfo finally spoken his side on the issue regarding PNP’s decision to surrender his guns after his license to own and possess firearms (LTOPF) expired on March 3.

Philippine National Police chief Gen. Oscar Albayalde yesterday warned broadcaster Erwin Tulfo that the PNP would be forced to take the necessary action if he will not surrender his firearms.

In his Facebook post, the journalist said that he found no malice in being ordered by the PNP to surrender his firearms.

“We find no malice on the part of PNP Chief Director-General Oscar Albayalde in his decision to strip us of our security detail and confiscation of my licensed firearms… “

“I have received death threats, which I have learned to live within my line of work, especially with the Tulfos’ public service work and brand of journalism, my bread and butter. With or without the PNP detail, we’re always a sitting target to big-time criminal syndicates,”

“The Tulfo brothers are no Bigshots by any stretch of imagination. Boses lang po kami ng mga inapi at ng mga nakakaligtaan ng lipunan.”

“WE ARE NO HEROES. However, we can’t just simply turn our back to those who ask for help because, were taught by our parents to stand up and fight for those who are weak and helpless. And for decades we have committed to rendering that kind of public service in our own small way, though it will not earn an epitaph at Libingan ng mga Bayani.’

“Indeed, it’s a dangerous country for hard-hitting journalists, as it is for cops and soldiers but we’ve got a lot of work to do to make this country a better place to live for everyone.” Tulfo wrote.

It was reported in a recent article, that Tulfo has been declared as persona non grata by the PMA Alumni Association.

Erwin Tulfo is a veteran journalist and broadcaster. His brothers are journalists as well. They are Ben, Ramon and Raffy Tulfo. 

He got involved in a controversy when he lambasted and criticized former general Rolando Bautista for not giving him an on-air interview regarding the recently passed Magna Carta for the Poor.
