President Rodrigo Duterte has until Monday (Sept. 30) to reveal the names of the so called “ninja cops” who allegedly recycle seized illegal drugs before senators beat him to it, Senator Richard Gordon said.

Gordon said Duterte can disclose information about ninja cops before they appear at the Senate Tuesday (October 1) for the hearing on the alleged corruption in the Bureau of Corrections.

“Tungkulin ng Senado ‘yan bilang a co-equal branch of government, ‘yung pagrespeto sa Pangulo dahil siya ang nangangasiwa,” he said in a radio interview Sunday (September 29).

“We are giving him the opportunity to show his leadership and say, o eto ginagawa nila ‘yan, mag-resign na kayo. Palagay ko naman gagawin ng Presidente ‘yung tama e. I hope he does,” Gordon added.

The Senate earlier gave the blue ribbon and justice committees permission to publicize the information shared by former police general and now Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong during an executive session on the alleged recycling of seized illegal drugs.

Gordon was coy when asked if Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Oscar Albayalde was among the police officials named by Magalong.

Albayalde was administratively relieved in 2014 when he was the director of the Pampanga police district over an alleged irregularity surrounding police operations against a suspected drug dealer in the town of Mexico.

“Maaaring siya ay tinukoy, maaaring siya ay hindi tinutukoy. Hindi ko pa sasabihin ‘yun dahil wala pa akong naririnig sa Pangulo,” Gordon said.

Albayalde has confirmed his attendance to the Senate hearing on October 1.
