MANILA, Philippines (Philippines News Agency) - Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa on Saturday confirmed that Superintendent Marvin Marcos, who led the raid in the Baybay City, Leyte jail that resulted in the death of Albuera, Mayor Rolando Espinosa last November 5, has long been involved in illegal drugs.

Kerwin Espinosa, the alleged big-time drug lord of eastern Visayas, during the Senate hearing last Wednesday, named Marcos as among the police officials who have received drug money from him in exchange for protection.

Dela Rosa said Marcos is now in the “restricted custody” of the PNP in Camp Crame, Quezon City while undergoing investigation.

He added that based on intelligence reports he received even before Kerwin testified in the Senate, Marcos has long been “tainted” with illegal drugs

Marcos, former chief of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) in eastern Visayas, has denied receiving drug money.
