Clark Air Base, Pampanga — President Rody Duterte disclosed a very bold statement by publicly revealing the identity of high police officials who are involved in illegal drugs, namely Gen. Marcelo Garbo, Gen. Vicente Loot, Gen. Diaz, Gen. Pagdilao, and Gen. Tinio.
President Duterte stated that he is compelled by his sense of duty to the public to tell all, especially those police officials linked to illegal drugs which contributed to the deterioration of law and order of the country, “What is really… I said sad… is that ito yung mga tao where given the honor to join the academies of our country, be it the PNP or the PMA at the expense of the public,” Duterte said. “All along tayong mga mamamayan thought that we are being protected by the police primarily,” He added.
Duterte expressed that it was difficult to hear these due to the facts that public pay for their needs, but then they got involved in such illegal activities.
As this time, President Duterte orders them relieved of their duties, and report to the Director-General, but he certainly expects the police commission to do their job, “Imbestigahan ninyo ito at wag ninyo akong bigyan ng sarsuela. Hanapin ninyo ang totoo,” Duterte said.
