Davao police chief denies cop impregnated Taiwanese-A A +A
Thursday, October 11, 2012
THE Davao City Police Office (DCPO) denied reports that one of the Taiwanese women, who were arrested for an alleged international financial fraud in April this year, was impregnated by a police officer.
In a phone interview, Senior Superintendent Ronald dela Rosa, DCPO chief, denied the allegation, saying that these are just rumors that would create a possible damage on the reputation of their office.
A source, who requested anonymity, disclosed the information to DxAB 1296.
Reports claimed that a Taiwanese was impregnated by a DCPO personnel when the latter was held under the custody of the office for alleged violation of Republic Act 8484 (Access Devices Regulation Act of 1998) in April.
Had there been one, dela Rosa said, they must have been the two pregnant women under detention.
"Basin mao to sila ilang pasabot (They might be referring to them)," dela Rosa said.
"Kaswerte ra nila (Taiwanese) noh kung mabuntisan ug pulis (They could be so lucky if they are impregnated by a policeman)," the DCPO chief jested.
He said he never failed to remind his team on not to do "anything wrong" against the Taiwanese detainees.
When informed of such rumor, he said he immediately called Jerry Wang, the Taiwanese police who sought assistance from the DCPO for the arrest of the respondents, and verified the allegation. Wang, on the other hand, said there is none.
Dela Rosa said he is confident that the accusations hurled against his members are just hearsay and baseless.
