Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV doesn’t suppose Philippine National Police (PNP) Dir. Gen. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa has something to do with the alleged death squad arrange by President Duterte shortly after assuming the presidency final yr.
Trillanes mentioned Dela Rosa was the one who ordered the aid of Supt. Marvin Marcos, one of many principal suspects within the killing of Albuera, Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa Sr., whom the senator believed was a key agent within the Duterte death squad purportedled to by a sure “Supt. Leonardo.”
“Sya ‘yung chief PNP. Kung hindi sya nag a-agree dun sa mga nangyayari, dapat ipapahinto nya ito. Sabi ko nga nung pina relieve nya si Marcos, ‘yung act of relieving Marcos in CIDG before nangyari yung patayan, only shows na hindi sya involved directly dun sa mga plano kasi ni relieve nya eh (si Marcos). Kailangan pa syang itusan na i- reinstate mo para ma execute nila yung plano,” he mentioned.
“Pero tinawagan sya mismo ni (Presidential special assistant Christopher) Bong Go at eventually pinasa yung telepono kay President Duterte at pina-reinstate itong mga pulis na ito and one month lang ang nakalipas, namatay na nga at pinatay na si Mayor Espinosa.So talagang meron silang mission,” he mentioned.
Trillanes famous Dela Rosa’s testimony in the course of the Senate’s investigation on the killing of Espinosa that the PNP chief relieved Marcos and his group from CIDG Region Eight as a result of they weren’t certified.
They needed to endure education earlier than they may very well be appointed to the CIDG, the senator mentioned.
The likes of Marcos and Leonardo have direct entry to the President, the senator mentioned.
“Kaya nga na-overturn si chief PNP nung ni-relieve nya (si Marcos) kasi nakaka-diretso sila kay Presidente,” Trillanes mentioned.
