Senator Panfilo "Ping" Lacson praised President Rodrigo Duterte and Philippine National Police Chief Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa for their actions against illegal drugs in the country,
In his opening statement at the Senate probe of Rolando Espinosa's killing, the senator believed that Duterte’s victory during the recent election and his appointment of Dela Rosa as PNP Chief is a "blessing" for Filipinos because of their focus on stopping the spread of illegal drugs.
“And now.. I would like to think and I believe na blessing na rin pala ang pagkapanalo ni Pangulong Duterte sa bansa at sa mamamayang Piipino blessing na rin sa ating lahat sa ating mga anak sa mga kabataan ang pagkatalaga kay Chief PNP Dela Rosa na maging Chief PNP kasi napabayaan po talaga overtime itong problema natin sa illegal drugs ngayon lang talaga napagtuunan ng pansin," Lacson said.
“I would like to state again for the record, Mabuti narin pala at nanalo si Pangulong Duterte at nandyaan na rin si Chief PNP Dela Rosa.” Sen. Lacson said.
Lacson, who was the PNP chief under former President Joseph Estrada's administration, said:
“I wanted to congratulate Ronald for being the presumptive chief PNP, but then good luck.. good luck sayo”
