After giving his testimony, alleged drug lord Kerwin Espinosa who was sitting beside the PNP chief reached for tissue napkins and gave it to Dela Rosa.
Dela Rosa added:
"There are times that I don't know who to trust, who is in or out of the drug business."
Dela Rosa had assigned Chief Inspector Jovy Espenido to head the Albuera police station in Leyte to lead the fight against drug in the area, but he soon found out that Espenido was allegedly involved in illegal drugs.
Dela Rosa however said, despite being emotional, that he will "fight till the end" mentioning that President Rodrigo Duterte's administration has "6 complete years" to reform the police.
