On Monday, November 14, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa announces the return of Kerwin Espinosa to the Philippines along with a guarantee that his fate will be different from his father's.
“Hindi yun mamamatay. Ako bahala,” the PNP chief said in an ambush interview when he arrived from being President Duterte’s official delegation in Malaysia.
Dela Rosa had earlier announced that to make up for the Espinosa Sr.'s death, he said, “Sige na babawi nalang ako dito kay Kerwin, pakisabi doon sa pamilya what I failed doon sa father I will redeem doon sa anak. Pag uwi nun sisiguruhin ko na walang manyari sa kanya.”
"Paninindigan ko ‘yan, walang mangyayari sa kanya dito," Dela Rosa promised.
In a statement given by the PNP chief during the press briefing in Camp Crame, he announced that the younger Espinosa is currently being fetched by a PNP team.
The police chief also admitted that he prefers for Espinosa to stay in Camp Crame rather than in Leyte.
"We'll inform the court in Leyte," he says.
Espinosa has been arrested by PNP Anti-narcotics operatives in Abu Dhabi on October 17 following a tip from some overseas Filipino workers (OFWs).
He has been placed in the custody of Abu Dhabi police, while necessary documents for his repatriation were arranged.
His father, Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa Sr. has been allegedly murdered while being served a search warrant inside his prison cell at Baybay Sub-Provincial Jail in November 5.
