Bato, ready to be jailed if accepting Pacquiao's kindness a crime

The PNP chief and champion boxer will be investigated by the Ombudsman.

PNP chief Director General Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa was one of the people whom champion boxer and senator Manny Pacquiao treated to Las Vegas to watch his fight live.

Pacquiao shouldered Dela Rosa and his family's expenses during their trip and the Ombudsman wanted to investigate for alleged act of bribery.

In an interview with GMA News, Bato said that he would accept the consequences if it was really a crime.

"Kung talagang kasalanan pala sa isang chief PNP na sayang yung tsansa na i-grab mo na hindi naman kriminal si Senator Pacquiao, hindi naman siya drug lord, hindi naman siya sindikato, hindi naman siya businessman na... maikompromise ang aking opisina," he said.

"Wala naman akong nakita na masama dun. Pero kung talagang 'yan ang batas, harapin ko 'yan, ikulong nila ako," he added.

The possible violated laws are the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees and Presidential Decree No. 46.

Dela Rosa asserted that Pacquiao gave the gifts to him as a longtime friend not as the PNP chief.

"Basta ako, ang importante, sa aking pananaw, yung imbitasyon ni Senador Pacquiao na tinanggap ko naman, ay hindi po yun in consideration of my position (as the) chief of PNP,"  he explained.

"Matagal na po kaming mag-kaibigan, matagal na kaming magka-kumpare. Hindi pa siya sikat na boxer, magkaibigan na kami. At pareho ang aming hilig, boxing kasi pareho po kaming laki sa hirap at nakikita naming boxing ang pwedeng aangat sa buhay namin," he stated, adding some humor to his explanation.

"Aminin ko, that was not the first time at saka hindi lang naman ako ang na-libre, marami po kami," Dela Rosa said.
