Richard Gomez is caught in a rift with PNP’s Bato. Here’s why

It seems like the cracks are showing between these Duterte stalwarts.

Actor now Ormoc Mayor Richard Gomez is currently in a verbal skirmish with Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa. The issue stems from Gomez’s case against Police Director Jovie Espenido, the
former head of the PNP unit in nearby Albuera, Leyte now assigned at Ozamiz City.

Gomez filed charges versus Espenido for alleging that the politiko was involved in the local drug trade. The Ombudsman handed a 90-day suspension order versus the cop, but this was lifted by Dela Rosa in Camp Crame, much to Gomez’s disappointment.

What will this mean for the two solid supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte? Stay tuned.
