Trending now is the statement of Senator Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa after confirming that his US visa has been denied.
“Sino ba masaya na hindi ko mabibisita ang mga kamaganak ko sa Amerika, mga pamangkin ko? Kapag may laban si Senator Pacquiao hindi na ako makakapanood? So masama ang loob ko,” Sen. dela Rosa stated after confirming that his US visa was denied.
Earlier reports reiterate the reason behind declining the visa of the senator is due to speculations about his participation in President Duterte’s war on drugs.
Due to the official confirmation, Sen. dela Rosa thinks that the US government was pacified with wrong information. He quoted, “Ako ba ay nag-encourage na patayin ang mga drug suspect? Ako ba ay nag-utos na patayin? Ako ba ay nag-cover up sa mga ginagawang kalokohan ng mga pulis?”
With those questions, people are left curious and asking who ordered the killings in the campaign related to the war on drugs. It is now a question of the precise name of people behind the allegations of extrajudicial killings that might, later on, give the opportunity to Sen. dela Rosa to have his US visa approved or the answer can either be a gateway to consolidate and criticize the motive and effort of the said senator in the execution of national policies.
