Senator Bato dela Rosa hit back at critics of President Rodigo Duterte for taking “out of context” his remarks that giving police gifts should not be considered as bribery.

“Si Presidente ay very pragmatic person, kahit ipagbawal mo yan…magpakatotoo tayo, wag masyado by the book… ‘wag natin bigyan ng masamang meaning ang sinasabi ng Presidente, practical lang,” said dela Rosa in an interview with DZBB.

Dela Rosa said even the police have “delicadeza” and refuse to take any gifts but they could not help it if the victims they helped get justice were insistent on paying back to show their appreciation.

“Ako nagretire ako sa pulis at inaamin ko na may mga pamilya talaga na matutuwa na natulungan mo na nasolve ang kaso, kung ayaw mo tanggapin. May delicadeza rin ang pulis, ‘Ma’am wag po ma’am,bawal po sa amin, di kami tatanggap’. Sabihin naman ng pamilya,’Sige na sir kung ayaw n’yo iwan ko sa table nyo, kung ayaw nyo ipakain nyo sa ibang tao’,” said del Rosa.

“Pupunta sa akin ang isang naholdap na pamilya, nahuli ang nangholdap. Sa tuwa ng pamilya pupunta doon, ‘Sir kawawa naman ang computer, o yung CR nyo, pwede sir ipaayos ko’.Ano ayaw mo tanggapin? ‘Di naman pang personal,” he said.

“Paano ang mga pamilya ng kidnap victim na na-rescue ng pulis, nasiyahan ang pamilya, nagdala ng lechon, pinapakain ang mga pulis, ano masama doon? ‘Di naman nanghingi ang mga pulis, anything out of generosity hidni naman siguro masama,” he said.
