“Pag sinabi kong I want to be investigated, I don’t think I want it. Pero pag sinabi mong ready to be investigated, I’m ready anytime. Wala kong tinatago,” Dela Rosa told ANC’s Headstart.
“Malinis ang aking konsensya. Kahit na balig-baligtarin nyo ako. Kung meron kang makita dyan na corruption na ginawa ko, sampalin nyo ako sa harapan ng madlang people. Hindi lang isang beses, kaliwa’t kanan, sampalin nyo ako pag may corruption akong ginawa,” he added.
In a previous report by KAMI, Dela Rosa said that the Bureau of Corrections should not be blamed for the release of convicts through the GCTA.
Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa is currently serving as a senator in the Philippines. He also served as the chief of Philippine National Police and the director general of the Bureau of Corrections.
