Dela Rosa: Mayor Osmeña not in PNP list of drug protectors


Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa on April 5 denied Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña is in their list of drug protectors.

Dela Rosa said the statement of Justice Department witness Jumbo Diaz is their only information against the Cebu politiko.

Diaz said Osmeña received P7 million from the late Visayas drug lord Jaguar Diaz.

Dela Rosa said the police cannot do anything for now.

“So far, we do not have any evidence linking the mayor to illegal drugs,” Dela Rosa said.

“The allegation must first be thoroughly validated and corroborated before we can act on it,” he added.
