Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Oscar Albayalde has denied claims made by Retired General Rudy Lacadin that he benefited from the controversial drug raid operation in Pampanga in 2013.

During the Senate hearing on Wednesday (October 9), Lacadin revealed that Albayalde called him to admit that he personally gained from the 2013 operation.

“Sabi niya [Albayalde] — I don’t know if he [Albayalde] was joking — ‘Actually, sir, konti lang naman napunta sa akin diyan’,” according to Lacadin.

However, Albayalde denied Lacadin’s claim and reiterated that Lacadin was “never a friend”.

“Lacadin has a lot of explaining to do and he will have his day in court,” he said.—AAC (with reports from April Cenedoza)

Former PNP chief General Oscar Albayalde

MANILA, Philippines – Inabswelto ng Office of the Ombudsman si dating Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Oscar Albayalde sa kasong graft na isinampa ng Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG).

Sa inilabas na desisyon, sinabi ng Ombudsman na walang sapat na basehan ang kasong isinampa ng CIDG laban kay Albayalde.

Ang kaso ay may kinalaman sa alegasyong inimpluwensiyahan ng dating PNP chief ang kasong may kinalaman sa iligal na droga kung saan isinasangkot ang mga dati niyang tauhan.

Sa isang pahayag, nagpasalamat naman si Albayalde sa lahat ng sumuporta sa kanya sa gitna ng pagsubok.

“It has been especially hard on my children who were immensely hurt by these false accusations,” ani Albayalde.

Ayon sa dating heneral, ang desisyon ng Department of Justice at ng Ombudsman ay patunay lang ng kanyang paninindigan na ang mga pag-atake laban sa kanya ay walang basehan at walang ebidensiya.

“As I have maintained since the beginning, I have placed my full trust in our justice system, and thankfully the truth has prevailed,” ang wika ng retiradong heneral.
