President Rodrigo Duterte has officially appointed former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Ronald dela Rosa as Director General of the Bureau of Corrections.

Duterte signed the appointment paper of Dela Rosa on April 30 but Malacañang released it only on May 3.

Dela Rosa retired on April 19 after 21 months of serving as the PNP chief.

He was supposed to retire on January 21 this year but Duterte extended his term until April.

FEATURED STORIES

The PNP, under Dela Rosa, had been criticized for alleged human rights violations in carrying out the President’s anti-drug and criminality campaign.

Duterte first named Benjamin Delos Santos as his first BuCor chief but he resigned in July 2017 after reports that the drug trade at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) had continued to proliferate during his term.

The President also officially appointed former Armed Forces chief Rey Leonardo Guerrero as administrator of the Maritime Industry Authority (Marina).

Guerrero’s appointment paper was signed on April 26.

He retired as AFP chief on April 18 after 38 years of military service.

Guerrero replaced Marina Administrator Marcial Amaro III who was fired in January for his excessive trips abroad.

Aside from Dela Rosa and Guerrero, Duterte also appointed retired Chief Supt. Valfrie Tabian as Deputy Director of the BuCor. /je
