VP Leni’s version on ‘palit-ulo’ scheme non-existent – ‘Bato’

Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald de la Rosa yesterday branded the “palit-ulo” scheme reported by Vice President Leni Robredo before the United Nations as non-existent as he stressed there is not a single complaint filed against the PNP regarding the matter.

“I deny that ‘palit-ulo’ version of the Vice President,” de la Rosa said in an interview by Camp Crame reporters.
The chief PNP said that there is a “palit-ulo” scheme in the campaign against illegal drugs, but not as described by Robredo.
In her version of “palit-ulo” which literally means “exchange heads,” Robredo claimed that relatives of suspected drug personalities are being taken whenever police fail to find the subjects.
“I will not tolerate such acts…present to me the policeman who is doing that, I will punch him in the face. I will maul him. Just present them to me if there are any,” de la Rosa said.
But under the “palit-ulo” scheme, which is not a common practice in the police operation, a drug suspect may be charged with lesser case if he or she agrees to identify his or her source of illegal drugs.
“There is palit-ulo wherein if you are a drug pusher and caught, you identify your supplier or the drug lord for lighter offense,” de la Rosa explained.
De la Rosa also lashed back at the camp of the Vice President for claiming to have wrote a letter to the PNP urging the organization to look into the supposed “palit-ulo” scheme in the war against illegal drugs.
He said Robredo’s camp only made such claim after the PNP corrected her concept of “palit-ulo” and, in fact, he has not received any letter until yesterday.
“How can I pay attention to that letter when it has not reached me? I have not received letter of that sort and they only said that after the PNP reacted that their concept of ‘palit-ulo’ is not correct,” de la Rosa said.
Relatedly, de la Rosa expressed elation over the participation of religious leaders in the conduct of anti-drugs operation after a Cebu priest reportedly expressed willingness to join the PNP in its fight against illegal drugs.
“Hallelujah, finally we have priests who want to help the PNP to save more lives,” de la Rosa said.
“I just hope that more priests will join our ‘Tokhang’ operations,” he added.
