Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief, Police General Guillermo Lorenzo T Eleazar ordered a thorough investigation into the revelation of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte that nine police generals were supposedly involved in drug trafficking.

As he talked about corruption and illegal drugs in his last State of the Nation Address, President Duterte said that nine high-ranking police officials were linked to drug trafficking.

PGen Eleazar assured that this will be seriously looked into as he reiterated that rogue cops have no place in the police organization.

“Iimbestigahan nating mabuti ang bagay na ito. Aalamin at tutukuyin natin ang matataas na opisyal sa PNP na sinasabing sangkot sa iligal na droga,” PGen Eleazar said.

“Uulitin ko, walang puwang sa organisasyon para sa mga tiwaling pulis, lalo na ang sangkot sa iligal na droga,” he added.

Surigao del Norte Representative Robert "Ace" Barbers already said he would push for a congressional inquiry of the case of the nine police generals.
