Duterte to re­ward cops who will kill ‘su­pe­ri­ors’ in­volved in drugs

Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories -

PRES­I­DENT Ro­drigo Duterte on Tues­day, Novem­ber 6, promised to give re­wards to po­lice of­fi­cers who will kill their “su­pe­ri­ors” linked to il­le­gal drugs.

Duterte made the vow dur­ing the lec­ture on mil­i­ta­riza­tion and drugs with Cab­i­net of­fi­cials held at Mala­cañan Palace.

The Pres­i­dent said he would send po­lice of­fi­cers to Hong Kong and give them P3 mil­lion if they are able to kill “ninja cops,” or those who have in­volve­ment in il­le­gal drugs.

“Any po­lice­man who will kill his su­pe­rior be- cause the su­pe­rior is into drugs, I will give you a prize and a trip to Hong Kong,” he said.

“Oo, to­too. If you want to con­vert it into money... And ‘yung ninja sabi ko, ‘yung mga ninja, the [re­ward], it stands P3 mil­lion ba ‘yung sabi ko? Oo. Patayin ninyo, P3 mil­lion. Sige,” he added.

Duterte’s re­marks came af­ter Su­per­in­ten­dent San­ti­ago Ylanan Rapiz, as­signed at the Lo­gis­tics Branch of the Zam­boanga del Norte Po­lice Pro­vin­cial Of­fice, was slain in a drug bust in Dipolog City late Mon­day, Novem­ber 5.

Rapiz was re­port­edly among those in­cluded in the gov­ern­ment’s drug list for sup­pos­edly cod­dling slain drug lord Melvin Odicta.

Duterte vented frus­tra­tions that some mem­bers of the Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice (PNP) still have con­nec­tions with il­le­gal drugs de­spite his re­lent­less cam­paign against the ram­pant nar­cotics trade.

“Po­lice Su­per­in­ten­dent San­ti­ago Ylanan Rapiz from Zam­boanga del Norte Pro­vin­cial Po­lice Of­fice, killed in a shootout by CITF (Counter-in­tel­li­gence Task Force)-pnp dur­ing buy-bust op­er­a­tions in Barangay Miputak, Dipolog City,” he said.

“T*** i **** mga pulis ‘yan, pa­p­atayin ko talaga kayo. Eh… Do not give me that hu­man rights,” Duterte added.

Duterte, how­ever, warned cops that their su­pe­ri­ors who have ties with drug per­son­al­i­ties might re­tal­i­ate.

“Ang su­pe­rior na mga pulis lal­a­ban man talaga ‘yan. Hindi ‘yan mag­pa­pahuli. One is that hindi ‘yan mag­pakahiya,” he said.

On Au­gust 17, Duterte raised the bounty for a “dead” ninja cop to P5 mil­lion from the pre­vi­ous P3 mil­lion./sun­star Philip­pines
