Philippine National Police Director General Chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa urged Vice President Leni Robredo to support the government if she wanted to gather some support from them.
During a press briefing at Kamuning Bakery Café, Dela Rosa said that Robredo should assist the President to succeed and he believed that the Vice President would have her time if she really wanted to pursue her dreams to become the next leader of the Philippines.
“Sana tulungan niya nalang ang presidente. She will have her time, pagtapos nito kung gusto niya mag presidente suportahan natin siya. Pero sa ngayon sana suportahan niya si presidente, pagkatapos nito kung gusto niya mag presidente eh suportahan naman natin siya” Dela Rosa said.
Vice President Leni Robredo despite of criticizing the war against illegal drugs, said that she’s not a member of the newly founded organization “Tindig Pilipinas”, a group that criticized the Duterte administration.
The key members of Tindig Pilipinas are mostly came from Liberal, the political party of the Vice President.
He also explained that the Philippine National Police value life and the people who were involved in messing the image of their campaign are the ‘riding-in-tandem’.
“Etong mga motorcycle riding criminals sumabay, ikaw may atraso ka sakin, personalan, papatayin ka via riding-in-tandem,” Dela Rosa said.
He also admitted that it made them difficult to investigate the riding-in-tandem cases because they were so focused in war against illegal drugs.
But now,according to Dela Rosa, the time of the motorcycle riding criminals has come.
“Bantay kayong mga riding in tandem, uupakan namin kayo,” Dela Rosa said.
Dela Rosa also lashed back at the Church who criticized their anti-illegal drug operation.
He said that instead of asking the Philippine National Police to change, it’s better for the priest to ask the drug personalities to change themselves.
Do not ask us to change. Ask that from drug personalities,” Dela Rosa said
“If the war on drugs is bloody, stop taking drugs, stop fighting the police!” he added.
