“I would like to announce that the admin case of police staff Sgt. Jonel Nuezca is already resolved. He is meted with administrative penalty of dismissal from service effective today (Jan. 11). This was already implemented by the RD NCRPO, Brig. Gen. Vic Danao,” said Sinas in a press briefing in Camp Crame in Quezon City on Monday.
