‘Azurin not yet off the hook on P6.7 billion shabu’MANILA, Philippines - Former Philippine National Police chief Rodolfo Azurin is not yet off the hook on possible liability in the lapses involving 990 kilos of shabu valued at P6.7 billion that were seized from a lending office of a PNP officer in Manila last October, Sen. Ronald dela Rosa said yesterday. “(Azurin) is not yet off the hook,” Dela Rosa told Senate reporters, noting that at least three low-ranking police officers indicated their intention to tell the truth and what they know about almost a ton of shabu seized from M/Sgt. Dela Rosa is chairman of the Senate committee on public order. Unless, at the next hearing, (BGen Narciso) Domingo says that General Azurin really had an instruction or clearance to hide Mayo, or not to charge him,” Dela Rosa said in Filipino. I think it is better if somebody will move to cite him in contempt,” Dela Rosa said.
