Bato: Cops who hang out in casinos will be probed

By: Inquirer.net October 30,2017 - 08:17 PM

Police officers who are often seen in casinos inside Entertainment City in Parañaque City will be investigated, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa said on Monday.

“I am directing General Pimentel (Director Gregorio Pimentel, head of the PNP Directorate for Intelligence) na mag-push siya ng mga operatives sa Entertainment City at bantayan ’yung mga pulis na palaging nakababad diyan sa mga casino,” Dela Rosa said in a press conference at Camp Crame.

“Kung nandyan sila para hindi magsugal, ano ang ginagawa nila?” Dela Rosa added. “So nagmo-monitor na ’yan sa mga possible nilang gawing victim sa kidnapping-for-ransom. So I am directing the director of intelligence na monitor mo lahat ng pulis na nakatambay diyan.”

This after some police officers, including a ranking Metro Manila police officer, were alleged to have been involved in the killing of junket operator Carlos Tan last October 21.
