The new WBO Welterweight Champion, Senator Manny Pacquiao, paid a courtesy call on President Rodrigo Duterte at the Malacañang Palace on Monday after a successful fight against American boxer Jessie Vargas in Las Vegas on November 6.

The president congratulated the “pambansang kamao” who gave honor to the country once again.

Pacquiao gave a black and gold shirt to Duterte who in turn commended the boxer for defending PNP Chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa regarding the free boxing tickets and all-expense paid trip to Las Vegas that he received from the people’s champ.

“You were right in defending Bato. What you donated [was] your skill. It is a donation…And you can afford to pay the expenses, it is commensurate with your wealth. There is no criminal liability,” Duterte told Pacquiao.  — UNTV News and Rescue

Dela Rosa wants 24 BuCor employees on Duterte’s narcolist out

BuCor Chief Ronald dela Rosa


MUNTINLUPA CITY, Philippines – Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Chief Ronald dela Rosa is determined to cleanse the agency of illegal drug transactions.

Dela Rosa said it is unbecoming for an agency in charge of corrections and reformations to be penetrated with officers and personnel involved in illegal drugs.

“Kung user ka tapos nag-gu-guwardiya ka sa loob, ano pa? Hindi ka makikipagsabwatan doon sa mga gumagamit sa loob? Yung nga nagne negosyo sa loob…It’s very unbecoming of yourself to be a correction officer and at the same time a drug user very unbecoming iyan,” Dela Rosa said.

(If you’re a user and you’re a guard, are you sure you will never connive with the users and traders inside? It’s very unbecoming to be a correction officer and at the same time a drug user.)

In line with this, Dela Rosa already ordered accounting on 24 BuCor employees who are included in the drugs watch list of President Rodrigo Duterte. He wants to make sure that proper charges have already been filed against them.

“Ang ginawa sa kanila pala, binigyan sila ng chance na magpa rehab,” he said.

(What happened was, they were given a chance to go to rehab.)

Dela Rosa vowed to strictly impose internal cleansing within the agency same way he did in the Philippine National Police (PNP) during his term as PNP chief.

“Iba sa policy namin sa PNP noon na walang rehab rehab. Sa PNP na pag positive ka, dismiss ka. Ganon dapat ka istrikto ang implementation sa internal cleansing program,” Dela Rosa concluded.

(Unlike our policy in the PNP, there’s no chance for rehab. Once you test positive, you’re dismissed. That’s how strict the implementation of internal cleansing should be.) – Lea Ylagan

QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Director Ronald Dela Rosa made a surprise visit to the detention facility of the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (ISAFP) inside Camp Aguinaldo, Wednesday, May 9.

Bato said he wants to check on the situation of high-profile inmates detained in ISAFP and to make sure that they are prevented from transacting illegal drugs.

Dela Rosa said he is satisfied with the security being imposed in the facility.

“Mahihirapan silang mag connive. Papayag ba ang AFP na magkakaroon ng drug trading, drug transaction within their compound ng Camp Aguinaldo? Hindi papayag iyan,” Bato said.

(They will find it difficult to connive. Do you think AFP will allow drug trading, drug transaction within their compound in Camp Aguinaldo? The will no allow it.)

During the inspection, the BuCor chief made a short talk with the eight high-profile inmates in the facility and encourages them to refrain from any wrong doing to be of help to the government in pursuing their former colleagues and stop illegal drug trade in the country.

“I talked to them sabi ko kahit na kayo ay mga state witness, pwede kayong mga dying witness kung kayo ay magpapatuloy sa kalakalan sa droga,” he said.

(I talked to them and told them that even though they are state witnesses, they can turn into “dying witnesses” if they continue dealing drugs.)

 The eight inmates – Herbert Colangco, Robert Durano, Jerry Pipino, Noel Martinez, German Agojo, Jaime Patio, Thomas Donina and Rodolfo Magleo – were transferred to the ISAFP facility from the New Bilibid Prisons after they turned into state witnesses against detained Senator Leila De Lima. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue
