President Rodrigo Duterte will reveal the ninja cops list to the public when he returns from his five-day trip to Russia in October, Sen. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go said on Sunday.
Duterte’s visit to Russia will be from October 1 to 5. He and Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold another round of bilateral talks during his visit.
“Nag-usap po kami ni Pangulo at plano niyang basahin at ipaalam sa publiko pagbalik mula byahe nya sa Russia. Bina-validate lang niya at meron pa siyang sinisilip, talagang sinisilip niyang mabuti kung involved ba itong mga ito (I talked to the President and he plans to disclose the list to the public when he comes back from his trip to Russia. He is validating it and he needs to check it further to ensure that these [policemen] are really involved [in irregularities]),” Go said.
Go added that the President asked concerned officials to validate the list of policemen suspected to be recycling seize illegal drugs.
“Kino-consolidate po muna namin ’yung mga listahan (We need to consolidate the list),” Go said in a chance interview on Saturday after he visited fire victims in Navotas.
“Iyong mga report po mula sa iba’t ibang ahensya ng gobyerno — PDEA (Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency), sa intelligence community — pinapa-cross validation po ni Pangulo ang lahat ng mga ’yan (The President has ordered the cross-validation of all the reports from different agencies – PDEA, the intelligence community,” he said.
Go also said on Friday that Duterte was willing to offer a reward to those who would give information about ninja cops.
“Nabanggit niya sa speech niya na P1 million po for dead, P500,000 po ‘pag alive at P2 million po ‘pag nanlaban (He said in his speech that he will give a reward of P1 million for a dead ninja policeman, P500,000 for a live ninja policeman and P2 million for a policeman who fought back),” he added.
