CareerEdit

Ebdane was the 10th Chief of the Philippine National Police serving from July 2002 to 23 August 2004.[2]

After the escape from jail of Islamic militant Fathur Rohman al-Ghozi on 14 July 2003, Ebdane stated he would be satisfied with any recovery, including "even if he is dead and torn to pieces".[3] He went to view the body after Al-Ghozi was shot dead by police on 13 October 2003, saying the militant was killed in a brief gunfight after opening fire at a military checkpoint.[4] One of the demands of the Oakwood mutiny on 27 July 2003 was the resignation of Ebdane as national police chief, but the mutiny was unsuccessful and short-lived.[5] He was chief of the PNP during the Hello Garci scandal, and admitted providing a vehicle to Virgilio Garcillano, but only when Garcillano was still with the Commission on Elections.[6] He said violence for the May 2004 election was lower than previous years.[7]

After serving as the chief of the PNP, Ebdane was named National Security Adviser, a post he held from August 2004 to February 2005.[2] In February 2005, he was appointed to a cabinet position as Secretary of Public Works and Highways, which he returned to in July 2007, after serving as Secretary of National Defense from February 2007.
