An anti-crime watchdog on Thursday claimed receiving intelligence reports against several police officials, even before President Rodrigo Duterte revealed their alleged involvement in drug trafficking.

Dante Jimenez, head of the group Volunteers against Crime and Corruption (VACC), said he had intelligence information on two or three of the five officials whom Duterte shamed in public on Tuesday.

VACC was not able to validate the reports due to limited resources, he said.

Jimenez also believes Duterte had strong evidence against the officials and that his exposé was not politically motivated.

He urged the President to identify more lawmen and local government officials involved in corruption. "Hindi lang dapat ang mga pulis kundi mga local government officials, hanggang taas pa dapat ang sabihin."
