As some report says that at least 50 celebrities were involved on the drug list of President Rodrigo Duterte, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa guaranteed showbiz personalities that they will not be jailed immediately if they will surrender to authorities.
“Kahit na pusher pa nga, basta mag-surrender at umamin at gusto nang magbagong buhay, pagbibigyan natin,” he added.The PNP chief also shared his plan of gathering all showbiz personalities included on the drug list of a certain television network. He called this method as modified Oplan Tokhang.
“Kung mag-surrender sila, e ito naman usapang lalaki, kahit na identified sila na user, kung mag-surrender sila, para sa akin, they don’t deserve to be jailed. Kung mag-surrender sila, bigyan natin ng tsansang magbago yung tao,” Dela Rosa told reportersDela Rosa said that this is the protocol of PNP to those who have surrendered.
Tao lang tayo. I want this (anti-illegal drugs) campaign to be as humane as possible. Kaya nga umabot tayo ng 720,000 na surrenderers dahil nga sa human approach natin,” he said.Meanwhile, stars like Daniel Padilla, Solenn Heusaff, Jake Cuenca, Enrique Gil, and Luis Manzano have undergone drug testing and has proven negative on use of illegal substance.
“Halimbawa sa isang network meron silan pito o sampu sa listahan gagawin natin doon (sa network). That is modified Tokhang, yung isang modification diyan ang tawag namin sa Davao ay Taphang, tapok hangyo, gather and plead. Meaning i-gather natin yung lahat ng TV personalities sa isang network, i-gather natin sa opisina nila then kausapin sila as a group,” he said.
“We will talk to them collectively, hindi na igndividually. We will tell them na you are identified, please huminto na kayo at nakakahiya kayo sa taumbayan. Idol na idol kayo ng kabataaan tapos pala gumagamit kayo ng droga. So we will try to give them advice,” he added.
