Gov Pineda to police: Go after big-time drug suppliers
Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda on July 9 has ordered the police to go after the “big fish” of the illegal drugs industry.
The Pampanga politiko gave instructions to the provincial police and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in Central Luzon to also go after the suppliers of illegal drugs in the province and not just the users and small-time pushers.
“I also told them to have a meeting with the Philippine National Police, PDEA, Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, and National Bureau of Investigation to further study our coordination in going after these big drug personalities and end this decade-long problem,” Pineda.
She said the arrested street-level drug suspects comprise almost 70% of inmates in the province’s jails.
Pineda also said the provincial government has allocated millions to help apprehend the big-time drug personalities in Pampanga.
