Dela Rosa to Robredo: Nakakasama ka ng damdamin!


The Philippine National Police has appealed to Vice President Leni Robredo to refrain from using the term "Tokhang for ransom" in referring to the abduction of a South Korean businessman.
On Monday, PNP chief Director General Ronald Dela Rosa admitted being hurt by Robredo's remarks and has encouraged her to instead use the term "kidnap for ransom" to prevent causing damage to Oplan Tokhang. 
"Pakisabi kay [vice] president huwag naman niya gamitin yung term 'tokhang for ransom' dahil nasasaktan kami. Gamitin niyo kidnap for ransom. Huwag i-assosiate yung Tokhang dahil baka may intention na babagsak yung aming war on drugs," Dela Rosa told a news conference.
On Saturday, Robredo said she has received information that several individuals have been killed but were not connected with illegal drugs.
"Kung nababasa natin, naririnig ang mga kuwento ngayon, napakaraming lumalabas na kuwento na pinatay hindi naman konektado dito. Ang ginagawa lang na dahilan ang droga dahil dito," she said.
Robredo, who has openly expressed concern on the government’s war on drugs, said some incidents no longer involved just killings but also kidnappings, a sort of "tokhang for ransom."
"Lately hindi nga sa patayan, pero pati kidnapping - parang tokhang for ransom. Talagang nakakabahala ito. Nakakabahala in a sense na parang nawawala na, iyong rule of law nawawala na," Robredo said.
Tokhang came from the Visayan word Toktok-Hangyo meaning to knock and plea. The PNP then used it for Oplan Tokhang where policemen visit the residence of drug suspects to appeal for them to mend their illegal ways.
Fake warrants
Dela Rosa, nonetheless, assured Robredo that the PNP will punish any policemen issuing fake warrants in the geist of Oplan Tokhang.
"Hindi po yan Tokhang. Ginagawa niya nagpapakita ng pekeng warrant of arrest, but the same, pulis pa rin yang mga gago na yan kaya kami ang nasisira. I guarantee you may kalalagyan yang mga pulis na yan. Hindi po namin yan hihintuan," Dela Rosa said.
Dela Rosa added Sta. Isabel and his cohorts are allegedly being protected by a drug syndicate aimed at using Oplan Tokhang to kidnap individuals.
"Meron siyang bossing na gusto sirain yung war on drugs natin sa PNP kaya pinasok siya doon sa AIDG. Lalabas ay saboteur siya," he said.
He added the syndicate uses fake arrest warrants to extort money from foreigners, saying kidnapping cops only deserve to be killed.
"Hindi lang drugs, yung mga peke na warrant of arrest. Gawa nila para takutin yung Chinese, yung Koreano, arestuhin kuno, peperahan. May mga ganyang pulis ang pinaggagawa kaya dapat yung mga pulis na yan pagpapatayin," Dela Rosa said.
