Bureau of Corrections Director Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa recently turned over to Naga City Mayor Kristine Chiong a check worth P100,000 as financial aid for landslide victims in the city.

At least 77 people have died after a landslide buried dozens of homes in Barangay Tinaan on September 20.

The landslide has also displaced 1,714 families or 6,913 individuals.

Said amount came from Dela Rosa’s own pocket and friends who asked the former police chief to donate, a Cebu Daily News article said.

The BuCor official also hoped that his donation should not be miscontrued as early campaigning.

Dela Rosa is eyeing a Senate post in the 2019 midterm elections.
