5 GENERALS. House Representative Leopoldo Bataoil (2nd District, Pangasinan) gives his takes to Mortz C. Ortigoza, co-anchor of Sonshine Radio 9:00 to 10:00 Am weekdays program, on the five active and retired police generals incriminated by President Rodrigo Duterte to be in cahoots with illegal drug lords.
Bataoil is a retired two-star police general before he became a congressman in 2010. He is on his last term in Congress.
“If they are truly involved they have to face the consequences of their actions,  if they were brave enough to involve themselves on the illegal activity, they should be brave enough to face the consequences of their actions. But if they are not involved, they have to defend themselves even in Plaza Miranda,” the solon stressed.
Bataoil, a former two-star police general, said since the president has implicated the alleged involvement of former Region 6 Director Bernardo Diaz, former National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Director Joel Pagdilao and former Quezon City’s Police Office’s Director Edgardo Tinio and retired generals Vicente Loot, who is now mayor of Daan Bantayan, and Marcelo Garbo.
In his speech during the 69th anniversary  of the Philippine Air Force, the President jolted the nation through television when he announced the names of these generals and their involvement in dangerous drugs.
Bataoil said he supported the call of President Duterte and Philippine National Police’s chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa to get rid the country of drug peddlers.
“This is a present of frustration. Past administrations medyo hindi naging successful ang national strategic plans against illegal drugs,” he said.
He said the two parts of the National Strategic Plans are supply reduction drive and demand reduction drive.
“Our new president has been thinking of effective ways and means on how to deliver and to comply with the wishes of our people, ”he said.
