The alleged Eastern Visayas drug lord has asked President Rodrigo Duterte for “forgiveness” and assured him that he would name everyone involved in the illegal drug trade.
“Ang hiling ko lang sa ating pangulo ay, humihingi ako ng tawad kung ano man ang nagawa ko dati. At sana bigyan niya ako ng pagkakataon na magbagong buhay,” said Espinosa during a press briefing at Camp Crame in Quezon City on Friday morning, November 18.
(All I want to ask from the president is forgiveness for what I had done. I hope that he would give me another chance to change.)
“Itong sitwasyon ko ngayon na wala na ang papa ko, maaasahan niyo lahat ng mga involved sa drug trade na nalalaman ko lalabas na lahat yung mga pangalan nila,” he said.
(This situation that I am facing now that my father was gone, I assure him that everyone I know who is involved in illegal drug trade would be named.)
Espinosa arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) where Philippine National Police (PNP) General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa met him before he was brought to the PNP headquarters.
