PNP chief Director General Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa on Friday said more big-time drug lords will be killed and scotched to criticisms that they only after the small drug suspects.
"Tama 'yung palagi tayong kini-criticize na kung mamamatay ba 'yung street pushers lang daw. Ngayon ito na, nakita ninyo, malaking drug lord—patay rin, 'di ba?" Dela said.
"Huwag kayong magmadali at marami pa tayong mapapatay diyan na high-value target. Hintayin lang ninyo," he added.
Meco Tan, a high-value drug lord and was killed yesterday after escaping to the authorities.
“Nang sumibat, hinabol ng ating kapulisan, at pinutukan niya ‘yung mga pulis nating humahabol. In fact, may tama yung windshield ng highway patrol car. May tama. So, pinutukan siya hanggang namatay,” Dela Rosa said.
Tan was the first Chinese drug lord who killed and they are investigating the sacks of illegal substance they recovered in the warehouse.
"Unang Chinese drug lord from mainland China pero pangalawa siya sa mga drug lords; si Jaguar ang una. Pero sa mga napatay siya ang pinakauna," he said.
