Nagbago na ang isip! Duterte gives go-signal purchase of US assault rifles
According to Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa said that President Rodrigo Duterte reconsidered his decision to purchase of 26,000 assault rifles from the United States.
“Actually I talked to him personally during our trip to Malaysia tungkol diyan. We reported to him that the processing of documents is going on smoothly according to Sig Sauer, wala silang nakitang harang doon, hindi po naharang.” Dela Rosa said.
In a letter to the Philippine National Police, it said that the application of purchasing a rifles from US was being processed as normal.
“When I explained that to him, sabi niya OK you continue. Ipagpatuloy n’yo yan kasi wala naman palang hinarang,” Dela Rosa said.
“As far as PNP is concerned, we have the blessing from the President to continue with the transaction kung walang harang, kung hindi maharang,” he added.
“Pero kung harangin nila, I’m sure the President will again tell me to stop it. Kasi para naman tayong kawawa na hinaharang tapos kinakausap, magmamakaawa e hindi po yan pupwede sa atin,” he said.
“Binabayaran namin ito, hindi naman namin ito hinihingi, binabayaran namin ito so we should get fair and equal treatment dahil this is business. Hindi naman ito grant, hindi naman ito aid na kailangan naming hingin. Business ito so kailangang pantay pantay tayo,” he said.
