Sumbong o kulong? Gov Pineda urges Mabalacat village chiefs to name drug suspects
Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda has warned barangay captains in Mabalacat City to name drug suspects in their villages or they will be tagged as protectors of the illegal drug trade by the police.
Pineda issued the ultimatum during a dialogue with Mabalacat City Mayor Crisostomo Garbo and Pampanga Provicial Police Chief Joel Consulta.
“The police will tag you as protectors if you won’t report these suspects. Please be our intels. Cooperate with the police,” Pineda said.
She also said better effort from the barangay level will help the provincial government’s preparation for the ASEAN Summit at Clark Freeport Zone in November.
“I expect you to deliver, because everything starts at the barangay level. You should know every individual coming in and out of your territories,” Pineda added.
