MANILA, November 14, 2016 (PNA) — Philippine National Police (PNP) Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa today warned corrupt police officers against engaging in criminal activities.
“I will literally break your neck,” he said.
Dela Rosa made the warning as he admitted that some corrupt police officers are using the war on drugs to perpetrate their illegal activities.
He said corrupt cops extort money from victims by threatening to investigate them for supposed drug activities if they don’t pay up.
Dela Rosa also called on the public to take courage in reporting the illegal activities of these “scalawags in uniform.”
He said he would prioritize the filing of charges against rogue police officers over drug personalities. (Perfecto T. Raymundo Jr./PNA)
