Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa said Wednesday he ordered the transfer to Jolo, Sulu of five members of the Makati police accused of extorting money from a Singaporean national.

“Yes, I issued an order transferring them to Jolo, Sulu. Di ko alam ang mga pangalan basta may isang chief inspector at four PNCO (police non-commissioned officers),” Dela Rosa said at a press conference.

This was in reaction to the statement of President Rodrigo Duterte on the alleged corrupt Makati police inspector

“I have heard disturbing reports of the Makati police [inspector], nangongotong diyan sa mga turista,” said Duterte, who was in Davao City for the All Saints’ Day holiday on Tuesday.
The PNP chief said he personally received the report on the erring police officers.

“It’s very unfortunate yung nangyari sa Makati na sa cellphone ko pa mismo nanggaling yung information, nakapasok sa akin, finorward ko sa Makati police station, pinalakad ng Makati chief of police yung operatives para ivalidate yung report na yun. Later on may lumabas na pera na P350,000 na binigay sa mga pulis,” he said.

He said the police officers involved denied the allegation and said they did not receive any money.
The victim, a Singaporean national, said he gave the money to a police major who was a retired security officer of the building where he is holding office and residing.

“According naman sa mga pulis natin, in fairness, hindi sila tumanggap at lumalabas na sinabi nung Singaporean na subject sa verification per text report na binigay niya yung pera sa isang pulis major na retired security officer nung building kung saan siya nag-o-office at nakatira sa Makati,” he said.
He said they have yet to get the side of the retired police official.

“Hindi pa natin nakuha yung police major na nagretire. He has to appear and explain his side. Otherwise, hahuntingin natin iyang pulis na yan kung ayaw niyang magpakita sa police station dahil accordingly sa kanya napunta yung pera, siya yung nagtransact sa victim na magbayad daw sa pulis,” he said.

“Itong Makati police officers, dinedeny nila na humihingi sila ng pera. That remains to be seen pag nakita natin yung sinabi nilang police major,” he added.

Warning vs. erring cops
He asked the public to immediately report any police officers who will use the administration’s war against drugs to extort.

He threatened to hang upside down the erring policemen.

“I would like to take this opportunity to make an appeal to the public, just  in case merong mga pulis diyan na ginagamit yung ating war on drugs sa pangongotong, please tell us right away at bibitayin ko ng patiwarik yang mga pulis na yan,” he said.

The PNP chief said even drug lords and drug pushers should report to him if police officers are extorting money from them.

“Pakisabi lang sa akin. Kahit kayo ay drug lord, pusher, pag kayo ay kinokotongan ng mga pulis, magreport kayo sa akin at may tama sa akin yang mga pulis na yan,” he said.
“At pag yung report ninyo hindi totoo dahil gusto niyong resbakan yung pulis, yung mga drug lord at pusher na nagreport, may tama rin kayo sa akin. Sana magtulungan tayo para mahinto yung corruption sa ating kapulisan. Hindi natin yan tinotolerate,” he said.
