Bato slams US for being 'biased': Did I order killing of drug suspects?

Did the United States cancelled the visa of former Philippine National Police (PNP) and now senator Ronald “bato” dela Rosa?
Senator Bato Dele Rosa slammed the US for being “very biased” if indeed his US visa has been canceled due tofthe first few months of the Duterte administration’s war on illegal drugs.

“Granting that it’s true na ang (that the) basis ng (of) cancellation is ‘yung (the) involvement [in] EJK, well they are very biased, they are misinformed, they are misled by their informants,” he told reporters.

“Kayo mismo nandito man kayo sa Pilipinas, kayong media, sige nga, ako ba’y nag-encourage na patayin ‘yung mga drug suspects? Ako ba’y nag-utos na patayin? Ako ba’y nagco-cover up sa mga ginagawa na kalokohan ng ating kapulisan?” the senator asked.

(You, the media, right here in the Philippines, did I encourage to kill the drug suspects? did I order to kill? Did I cover up the wrongdoings of our policemen?)

The former PNP Chief has not asked formally from the United States embassy here in Manila to check the status of his visa, he just heard the rumor over the weekend.

Dela Rosa admits that he was dismayed by such reports

“Sino bang masaya? Hindi ko na mabisita mga kapatid ko sa Amerika; mga pamangkin ko hindi ko na mabibisita. ‘Pag may laban si Sen. Pacquiao hindi na ako makakapanood dahil hindi na ako makapasok doon so masama ang loob ko talaga,” Dela Rosa said.

(Who’d be happy with it? I can no longer visit my siblings in America; I can no longer visit my nephews and nieces. I can no longer watch Senator [Manny] Pacquiao’s fights because I can no longer go there so I really feel bad about it.)
