Dela Rosa becomes emotional during Senate probe
During the Senate probe on the death of Albuer, Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa, PNP Chief Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa became emotional after Senator Miguel Zubiri praised him and told him that the senators support him 100 percent in the campaign of President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs.
Zubiri said that maybe Dela Rosa was disappointed with the involvement of many police officers in illegal drugs.
"Sa tingin ko, ikaw na lang ang pinagkakatiwalaan namin. Ikaw na lang talaga ang pag-asa namin, because we believe in you," Zubiri said.
After the statement of Zubiri, Dela Rosa became emotional.
"I, myself, sinasabi ko nga minsan hindi ko na alam kung sino ang pagkatiwalaan.... Like itong si Chief Inspector Espenido, nilagay ko siya doon as chief of police ng Albuera because buo ang paniniwala ko kahit hindi siya personally kilala," dela Rosa said.
"Gustung-gusto ko lang ma-reform ang PNP, kasi mahal na mahal ko ang organization namin kahit ako ay hirap na hirap na," Dela Rosa said.
"I will never surrender. Masasabi ko sa inyo, if you survive the board in the Academy, sa PMA, you will survive the world. Kaya ko 'to. Hindi ko ito uurungan. Lilinisin ko ang PNP hangga't sa makaya ko," he added.
He also urged the public to understand them.
"Medyo nahihirapan na rin kami. Nahihirapan na rin kami na mag-adjust dahil sa mga pangyayari. But please understand na kami po ay tao lang," he said.
"Andiyan na kami sa sitwasyon na 'yan [pero] we will survive.... We will do everything humanly possible. Linisin natin ang PNP," he said.
"Hindi ako Superman, ako ay ordinaryong pulis lang. Pero since nilagay ako bilang chief PNP ni Presidente, gagawin ko lahat, lilinisin natin ito, even if it costs my life," he added.
Senator Zubiri apologized to Dela Rosa and said that it was not his intention to make the latter emotional.
"My intention was to show you our support that we believe in you, General," he said.
He then approached Dela Rosa and gave him a hug.
