The budget of the Philippine National Police will have difficulties getting through the Senate.
According to Senate President Aquilino ‘Koko’ Pimentel, the PNP needs to do a lot of explanation during the budget hearing.
Pimentel said that approving the proposed budget of the PNP will be affected by Police Chief Ronald ‘Bato’ Dela Rosa capability to explain the alleged extrajudicial killings in the Philippines.
According to critics of the government, the so-called EJK cases is caused by the Duterte Administration’s strengthened campaign against illegal drugs.
The Senate is also disappointed with the PNP’s lack of action in disciplining police who are facing criminal charged and accused of committing human rights violations.
