Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, the head of the senate committee handling the case of the viral traffic argument on August 8 between cyclist Allain Bandiola and former police officer Wilfredo Gonzales had a stern warning during the hearing.
On September 5, 2023, Dela Rosa interrupted Gonzales who narrated a different version of the story about the incident.
While Bandiola said that he didn’t curse at Gonzales during their encounter, the ex-cop claimed that he heard the cyclist swear at him.
Because of the difference in the story between the two involved, Dela Rosa warned Gonzales to only tell the truth.
Dela Rosa reminded Gonzales that he was also once a police officer and head of PNP.
“Ikaw Mr. Gonzales ha, I want to inform you that pag nagsinungaling ka dito you may be cited for contempt at pwede kitang ipakulong sa baba,” said Dela Rosa.
“Magsabi ka ng totoo, wag kang mag-imbento ng istorya dito dahil ikaw dismissed na pulis, ako retirado akong pulis, hindi tayo pwedeng magbobolahan dito,” he added.
Gonzales then insisted that he would only tell the truth.
“Naiintindihan ko po your honor, kung ano po ‘yung interview sakin ni Ka Tunying ‘yun din po ang sasabihin ko sa inyo,” said Gonzales.
