"Sige kaya turo sa pulis, na pulis ang pinagsususpetsahan ninyo pero 'yung gumagawa ng patayan, 'yan ang kagagawan ng mga drug syndicate," he added.
Dela Rosa said people should not focus on the police on the issue of slain drug personalities and thrown anywhere like the so-called “salvage victims”.
“You keep on looking at the police, you keep on suspecting us. But those behind these ‘salvage’ … these are the work of drug syndicates.”Dela Rosa said.
