- Senator Leila De Lima has warned alleged drug lord Kerwin Espinosa to have the same unfortunate death as that of his slain father
- Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, on the other hand, firmly said that they won't allow any kind of harm come near Kerwin
- De Lima on a statement on Sunday stated: this government is going to make sure you (Kerwin Espinosa) end up like your father
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa hit Senator Leila De Lima on Monday after the latter's statement about the assasisnation of suspected drug lord Kerwin Espinosa.
The female senator warned that Kerwin might have the same grim fate as his slain father Rolando Espinosa.
The Albuera, Leyte mayor was killed inside his cell last November 5 at the Baybay, Leyte sub-provincial jail.
During a media briefing on Monday in Camp Crame, Quezon City, Dela Rosa assured that the PNP has vowed to protect Kerwin come what may and that the team is doing its best to secure him.
Dela Rosa did not also miss to comment on De lima's prediction about Kerwin's death.
”Mabuti pa sya at alam nya na mamamatay si Kerwin. Ako hindi ko alam kung mamamatay but ang alam ko we are doing our best to secure Kerwin Espinosa. Over our dead bodies,” the PNP chief said.
(Good for her she knows that Kerwin is going to die. Me, I don't know if he will die but what I know is that we are doing our best to secure Kerwin Espinosa.)
Dela Rosa is confident that nothing can come near to kill neither harm Kerwin because first they have to pass thorugh over their "dead body."
Meanwhile, in a statement on Sunday, De lima has cautioned the younger Espinosa.
"Don't ever think that your 'cooperation' will spare you your life. Sooner or later this government is going to make sure you end up like your father," she said.
"I make the same prediction for Jaybee Sebastian," De Lima added.
