TWO days after he was named a drug protector by President Rodrigo Duterte, Daanbantayan Mayor Vicente Loot put up P50,000 as reward for a police officer who eliminates a drug pusher in his town. There’s also a P10,000-reward for the arrest of a drug pusher.
He said he is offering the bounty as part of his serious campaign to rid his town of illegal drugs. He set 100 days to carry out his anti-drug campaign and see results. Also included in his program is free funeral service for the slain drug pusher. As he expects more drug pushers to fall, he plans to expand the town cemetery.
Loot was scheduled to meet PNP Chief Ronald Dela Rosa yesterday to clear his name. The other generals implicated in Duterte’s expose are Chief Supt Joel Pagdilao, Chief Supt Edgardo Tinio and Chief Supt Bernardo Diaz.
At a press conference later, Loot said that in July 2013, Duterte, then Davao City mayor, had recommended him to be director of Police Regional Office (PRO) 11 to then President Benigno Simeon Aquino III. The recommendation alone means he could not be a drug protector, Loot said.
He showed reporters Duterte’s letter of recommendation..
