Malacañang believes that offering optional retirement to cops on the drug watchlist is acceptable.

On Monday, Philippines National Police Chief Archie Gamboa urged the 357 policemen who are being investigated for alleged involvement in the illegal drug trade to retire early.

Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo, however, clarified that an early retirement won’t clear them of criminal charges.

“Giving them retirement option does not mean they will not be prosecuted if there is evidence they’ve been involved,” said Panelo.

“Subject to prosecution naman eh so wala namang mali doon. It would be different kung binigyan mo ng optional retirement pagkatapos may criminal waiver ng prosecution. That would be unlawful. You cannot waive criminal prosecution when there is a violation of the law,” he added.
