by UNTV News and Rescue   |   Posted on Monday, February 11th, 2019


Retired General Ronald dela Rosa (R) on the program Get It Straight with Daniel Razon

QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Retired General Ronald dela Rosa admits that law and order remains his top priority even as a private individual.

Now that he is trying his luck in re-entering government service, the former chief of the Philippine National Police said he wants to propose measures that will maintain law and order in the country as this is one way of boosting the country’s economy and improving the lives of Filipinos.

“Mag-concentrate ako dito sa aking cup of tea, na law and order kasi alam natin, economy will follow. Pag maganda ang peace and order ng isang bansa, susunod ang investment,” Dela Rosa said in an interview with the program Get It Straight with Daniel Razon on Monday (February 11).

As the former top law enforcer in the country, Dela Rosa said he is in favor of lowering the criminal age of responsibility from 15 to 12 years old. However, he suggests that the government should provide more rehabilitation facilities for juvenile delinquents.

“Magkakaroon ng foreign investment, local investors. Magi-invest sila ng pera dahil confident sila. Kung may investment, may employment. Kapag may employment, may income ang tao. Kapag may income, may makakain sa kani-kaniyang pamamahay so gaganda ang buhay ng tao pag may laman ang tiyan,” he added.

To further intensify national security, he will propose the registration of subscriber identification module (SIM) cards and regulate its distribution as a way to counter terrorism.

He also promised to campaign against loose firearms across the country.

Meanwhile, Gen. Bato said he feels sorry for the deaths caused by the government’s war on drugs under his leadership of the PNP.

Nevertheless, he feels relieved every time there are people who thank him for the reform and improvements since the launch of the Duterte administration’s campaign against illegal drugs.

“May lalapit sa iyo at yayakap: ‘Sir, maraming salamat sa ginagawa ninyo. Malaki na po pagkakaiba ngayon. Noon po takot na takot kami. Ngayon hindi na po kami takot, baligtad na. Noon, nagtatago kami sa loob ng bahay, ayaw naming lumabas sa kalsada. Ngayon baligtad na, kami na nasa kalsada. Ang mga addict na ang nagtatago sa bahay dahil baka makita ng pulis,’ ” he said of the people who approach him to recognize his accomplishments.

“Very fulfilling. Napalapit ko, (ang) pulis sa taumbayan,” he concluded happily. – Marje Pelayo (with reports from Rosalie Coz)
