SENATOR Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa is willing to be slapped repeatedly in public if investigation will show that he is involved in corruption.
At the same time, Dela Rosa assured that he is ready to face any probe into the release of heinous crime convicts during his term as chief of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) from May to October in 2018.
Dela Rosa, during his BuCor stint, signed the release orders of 120 heinous crime convicts based on the good conduct time allowance (GCTA) law.
“Pag sinabi kong I want to be investigated, I don’t think I want it. Pero pag sinabi mong ready to be investigated, I’m ready anytime. Wala kong tinatago…”
“Malinis ang aking konsensya. Kahit na balig-baligtarin nyo ako,” he said.
“Kung meron kang makita dyan na corruption na ginawa ko, sampalin nyo ako sa harapan ng madlang people. Hindi lang isang beses, kaliwa’t kanan, sampalin nyo ako pag may corruption akong ginawa,” Dela Rosa said.
The Senate is investigating the issue on the release of convicts through the GCTA law.
