- Suspected police who are involved in drug-related activities snubbed PNP chief Ronald dela Rosa's 48-hour ultimatum to surrender
- Dela Rosa identified 'ninja group' involving corrupt policemen who recycle confiscated drugs
- Dela Rosa said that they must surrender or else they will die
Police who are suspected to be involved in drug-related activities have not responded to the 48-hour ultimatum given by the newly installed Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa, requesting them to resign or become targets of PNP.
Dela Rosa identified a so-called ‘ninja group’ whose members are allegedly corrupt policemen who recycle confiscated drugs. He then told them to surrender in 48 hours, the ultimatum given on Friday, “or die”, Dela Rosa said.
"I am giving you 48 hours to voluntarily surrender to me at ilahad ninyo sa akin ang lahat. Otherwise, mag-AWOL na lang kayo at mag-full-time drug lord na lang at makipag-giyera na lang kayo sa amin."
[I am giving you 48 hours to voluntarily surrender to me and tell me everything. Otherwise, you can just have your AWOL (absence without leave) and be full time drug lords and fight against us], dela Rosa said.

PNP spokesperson S/Supt. Dionardo Carlos said in an interview that they still do not have the data of those who are in the PNP and they are still waiting for them to surrender, especially those who are in the identified group (ninja group). Carlos also mentioned that several drug personalities have expressed their intent to surrender to PNP and disclosed some officials who are allegedly protecting drug rings.
"Noong Friday rin po, may inilapit kay Chief PNP. Sinabi niya rin po sa command conference na mayroon pong gustong sumuko at may ibibigay na pangalan na nasa hanay ng pulisya." [Last Friday, we had a consultation with Chief PNP (Ronald dela Rosa). He also mentioned in the command conference that there are some who wanted to surrender and give names of police involved.], Carlos said.
In a nationwide drug test conducted by the PNP top officials who has also undergone the test, not less than nine police personnel tested positive, according to dela Rosa. - AA, Kami Media
