MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya actor Coco Martin defended his longest-running primetime teleserye “Ang Probinsyano” after Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Oscar Albayalde raised concern on the show’s portrayal of corruption among the police.  

“Kung titignan natin sa ngayon, sa pinapalabas namin ngayon, maaaring ‘yun ang magiging tingin nila. Pero kung titignan nila at panunoorin nila ang kabuuan ng Ang Probinsyano, malayo na ang journey na tinakbo,” the “Ang Probinsyano” star said in an interview with ABS-CBN.

He clarified that the character of the new PNP chief in the series, Soliman Cruz, is not the first chief to play the role as his predecessor was an ideal role model for the police. 

"Unang-una, hindi lang naman ‘yung karakter ni Soliman Cruz ang kauna-unahang PNP Chief e, di ba si Eddie Gutierrez ang una diyan, isang maayos at matino. And then si Tito Jaime Fabregas, si General Borja, kumbaga pinapakita naman natin ang both sides eh, na merong masama, meron namang mabubuting mga pulis.”

Coco added that he does not want the issue to be controversial, so he is willing to speak with PNP officials to clarify things. 

“Ayoko na sana palalimin pa or what, pero sabi ko nga, para sa ikatatahimik at ikaaayos ng lahat, sana makapag-usap para maayos ‘yung mga bagay na hindi pagkakaunawaan,” he said.

"Sabi ko nga, sobra ‘yung respeto ko sa kanila, sa ating mga kapulisan, lalo na sa ating bagong PNP Chief, gusto ko personally makipag-usap sa kanila," he added. 

Recently, he posted on Instagram a photo of his teleserye. The post says: “Ang mga pangalan, karakter at mga insidente sa programang ito ay kathang isip lamang at hindi nagpapakita ng mga totoong tao, organisasyon, lugar o kaganapan. Anumang pagkakahalitulad sa totong buhay ay di sinasadya.”

“Pasensiya na po!” he captioned his post.
