PNP Chief: Alleged drug lord Kerwin Espinosa arriving on Thursday from Abu Dhabi



PNP Chief Ronald Dela Rosa said alleged drug lord Rolan "Kerwin" Espinosa will "more or less" arrive in the Philippines on Thursday. In a press briefing on Monday, Dela Rosa said authorities have already flown to Abu Dhabi to fetch Espinosa, son of slain Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa. Kerwin is currently held by authorities in Abu Dhabi following his arrest on October 17. The PNP Chief said Kerwin will be brought to Camp Crame straight from the airport. "We will do the normal procedure but hindi na namin siya dadalhin dun sa issuing court doon sa Leyte. Dito na lang sa Crame muna," he said.

[Translation: We will do the normal procedure but we will not bring him to the issuing court in Leyte. He will be detained here in Crame.] Dela Rosa revealed the Department of Justice (DOJ) also asked the PNP to let them "safekeep" Kerwin, but the PNP top brass said they will still discuss the matter. Dela Rosa "guaranteed" the public that Kerwin "will not die". "Hindi mamamatay 'yun. Sigurado, hindi 'yun mamamatay... Guaranteed 'yan. Paninindigan ko 'yang aking sinasabi walang mangyayari sa kanya. Safe siya dito," Dela Rosa said. [Translation: He will not die. For sure, he will not die. That's guaranteed. I will prove true to my word that nothing will happen to him. He's safe here.] The Senate began its probe on the killing of Albuera Mayor Espinosa and inmate Raul Yap last week. For his part, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Kerwin must not share his father's fate. "Unlike his late father, the Albuera Mayor, he must live to tell his story," Lacson told the Senate as it began its inquiry into the killing of Albuera, Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa. Lacson urged the government to ensure the younger Espinosa's safety and prove its sincerity in pinning down all public officials who have benefited from the illegal drug trade. Before his death, Mayor Espinosa revealed everything he knew about his son Kerwin's illegal drug operations in two sworn affidavits. He also named at least 50 government officials, police, and other personalities as protectors of Kerwin's "big-time" drug transactions in Eastern Visayas.
