- General Bato dela Rosa said that if it is proven that he committed a violation for going to Las Vegas to watch the Pacquiao fight, he is willing to go to jail
- The Ombudsman will investigate whether such act of Bato violated the Code of Conduct for Public Officials
- Bato said that he is man enough to face jail time if proven wrong
Just like his commander-in-chief who loves to make promises, PNP Chief Gen. Ronald dela Rosa said that he is ready to face jailtime if it is proven that he committed violations for going to Vegas to witness the Pacquiao fight.
This was in response to the Ombudsman’s statement last week that it will be investigating the general’s possible violation of the Code of Conduct for Public Officials.
Bato went to Las Vegas to watch Pacquiao’s fight with Mexican Jesse Vargas. He was seen at the ringside, the ticket of which cost a hefty sum.
It was the boxer-turned-senator Manny Pacquiao who paid for the trip of Bato to Las Vegas.
According to reports, Pacquiao bought around 2,000 tickets, which costs around $1 million. He also invited several government officials to watch his fight, all at his expense.
Bato told reporters that if it turns out in the investigation that he committed certain violations, then he is willing to go to jail. He is perfectly okay with it for as long as he did something wrong.
He also said that the important thing was that he was honest and that he spoke the truth.
If Bato is willing to risk being jailed, this family is constantly risking their lives living with bears.
