Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Ronald Dela Rosa intends to present the rogue policemen to President Rodrigo Duterte in Malacañang.
This comes, after Duterte rejected Dela Rosa’s plan to put 387 erring cops under a three-month disciplinary retraining program.
Dela Rosa says, “ipapadala sila sa Malacañang para maglinis ng Pasig River (they will be sent to Malacañang to clean Pasig River),” Dela Rosa said.
Dela Rosa notes, water lilies prevent the President’s boat from crossing the river.
The PNP Chief also promises that the seven policemen involved in the alleged extortion activities that victimized 3 Koreans in Angeles City will be dismissed.
He is responding to criticisms that he only made them perform push-ups when he met them in Camp Pepito in Angeles, Pampanga last week.
Dela Rosa says, he needed to observe due process.
“Hanggang doon lang ba? May kaso yon. I tell you, matatanggal sila sa serbisyo (It will be just that? They have cases. I tell you, they will be removed from service),” he explains.
He adds, “gusto ko silang i-firing squad. Gusto ko silang bugbugin. Pero pag binugbog ko, sasabihin si Chief PNP, number one human rights violator (I want them to face the firing squad. I want to beat them up. But if I maul them, the Chief PNP will be called the number one human rights violator).”
The PNP also announces that people can use the text hotline #0998-970-2286 for any complaints against police scalawags.
