MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has got Major General Guillermo Eleazar’s back.

Duterte made this assurance after the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief received criticisms for humiliating and raining on expletives to a policeman allegedly involved in robbery-extortion activities in Pasig City.


Eleazar confronted Police Corporal Marlo Siblao Quibete after he was caught in an entrapment operation on Tuesday night for allegedly receiving P20,000 in marked cash from a woman in exchange of dropping drug charges filed against her live-in partner.

Eleazar, however, denied slapping, pulling the hair, and punching the chest of Quibete.

“Ilan na lang natitira na puro matitino na? Kaya itong pulis, everyday there’s always an idiot. Nahuhuli,” Duterte said in a speech during the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) anniversary in Malacañang.

He lamented that Eleazar “was criticized for that.”

“Sir, sabihin mo kay Eleazar, okay ‘yun. Eh ano ba naman ‘yung ganun-ganon? Sabihin mo I have his back covered,” he said. /kga
