8 Central Luzon Politicians: Under investigation over drug links

PRO-Central Luzon director Chief Superintendent Aaron Aquino said Tuesday during a press conference in Camp Olivas Pampanga. He refused to give names of the politician but they are conducting investigation against at least eight local government executives in the region over their alleged involvement in illegal drugs, 5 were Mayors, 2 Congressman, and 1 Vice Governer based on the Region’s Police Intelligence.

Dela Rosa said the names of the politicians are included in the drug watch list of President Rodrigo Duterte. Although the politicians were not tamed, this is still pending verification and further investigation is still needed.

“Tignan sa listahan, andun sa listahan yan, Bina validate pa natin ‘ yan.”he said.

On August 3, 2017, Duterte “updated” his drug list during a meeting with mining executives in Malacañang. He even named some of the local executive and police officials on the list in public television, more than 150 politicians and police officials allegedly linked to illegal drug trade.

Duterte appointed Aquino as the new chief of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) to replace former police General Isidro Lapeña who was appointed as new commissioner of the Bureau of Customs.

During the oath taking of new star-rank police officers in Malacañang , Duterte revealed that he discovered that Mabilog is living in a house similar to a “palace” after he ordered a lifestyle check on Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, whom he identified as a “narco-politician.” Mabilog is allegedly protecting drug syndicates, an accusation the mayor has repeatedly denied.

Duterte lamented that many politicians were either cowed or were protectors of drug lords and crimininals. “Some are even drug lords and criminals so they neither have the urgency nor possess the resolve to deal with the many evils affecting our society today,” he said.

This is the reason why our president looked to PNP to provide leadership, ensure peace and order and uphold the rule of law.

“Despite the headway we already made against illegal drugs and criminality, our country is not yet safe from harm and danger. So remain vigilant. Stay alert and be ready.” he added.
