MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte has signed a memorandum ordering the Philippine National Police (PNP) and other law enforcement agencies to rejoin the government’s war against illegal drugs, Malacañang announced Tuesday.
MANILA -- The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) on Tuesday welcomed the return of the Philippine National Police (PNP) to the government's anti-drug operations as ordered by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
PNP Chief, Director General Ronald dela Rosa, said that should President Rodrigo Duterte reconsider and again give the police the lead in the ongoing anti-drug campaign, he would push for more body cameras for operatives deployed for the mission.
The PNP- drug enforcement group still hasn't completed its recruitment of righteous policemen who will be members of the new group which will spearhead the PNP's renewed campaign against illegal drugs.
PNP Spokesman Dionardo Carlos says the PNP can't promise a bloodless drug war. However, he says the PNP will be transparent and accountable for the effects of the administration's war on drugs. | CNN Philippines
