Philippine National Police Anti-Cybercrime Group (PNP-ACG) spokesperson Police Capt. Michelle Sabino has been dismissed from her post following a controversial raid in Makati.

According to RH Val Gonzales' report on Rapido Hataw Balita on Thursday, Oct. 26, PNP ACG director Sydney Hernia confirmed that Sabino was removed as PNP-ACG spokesperson.

Hernia said that Sabino have been transferred to another office.

The dismissal came after the controversial attendance of social media personality and vlogger Rendon Labador in a police raid on an online lending company in Makati last Friday, Oct. 20.

Labrador went live on his official Facebook page during the said police operation, exposing the faces of the lending company's employees.

In an earlier interview with another media outlet, Sabino explained that she and the social media personality have a collaboration project titled "Boses Ng Bayan".

"Katulad ng sinasabi ko, we have a collaboration prior to the operation. This collaboartion is for the purpose of raising public awareness. Mag-collab kami sa isang program kung saan ita-tackle namin ang iba't ibang uri ng online scams para tulungan ang kababayan natin," she said.

Sabino contended that Labador was not the only one invited to the raid and that the livestream was out of her control.

"When he was there, even the two giant media, GMA and ABS-CBN, was with him. He doesn't have inclusivity in the operation. Unlike parang lumalabas na parang siya yung kasama," she earlier said.

"Hindi lang siya alone. Its him with the media. Kung nag-live siya, that's out of my control. Ang tanda na nito, ano sabihin ko dyan, 'Babantayan kita'?" Sabino added.
