Duterte announces 163 names on drugs watchlist

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/07 August) — President Rodrigo Duterte named 163 officials – 15 of them former or retired – who are allegedly involved in the illegal drugs trade.

He announced the names on his list — judges, incumbent and former mayors, vice mayors, congressmen and police officers — during his visit to the wake of the four slain soldiers at the Naval Station Felix Apolinario (NSFA) in Panacan, this city, at around 1 a.m. Sunday.

Duterte listed eight judges, 57 mayors, vice mayors and congressmen (13 from Luzon, 17 from the Visayas and 27 from Mindanao), and 98 policemen.

The President instructed the Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Ronald Dela Rosa to cancel the firearm licenses and permits of those government officials and politicians as well as the relief of police and military officials providing them security escorts.

The police and military officials named were also relieved and ordered to report within 24 hours to Dela Rosa and Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) chief of staff Ricardo Visaya or he will order government forces “to hunt them”.

The judges will also report to the Supreme Court, he said.

“All policemen, PNP personnel assigned as security guards, security personnel ng mayor I have mentioned, you are hereby relieved of your duty and immediately report to your mother unit. Tatanggalin ko ‘yung operational authority over them. Twenty four hours, lahat military, police, nakadikit diyan sa mga itong mga ito, I give you 24 hours to report to your mother unit or I will whack you and dismiss you from the service,” he said.

He said he takes full responsibility if anyone on the drug list was mistakenly identified but “10 angels of God swearing I was right would make no difference. If I am wrong, I will accept the consequences” because he ordered the police and military to do the listing and the validation he read the list.

“That is the way how to act as President.  I will gamble and I have said before in this presidency, I put at stake my honor, my life, and the presidency itself. I’m ready to lose it anytime,” he added.

He said Local Government secretary Mike Sueno will handle the cases of the identified government local officials, do further investigation, and file administrative charges.

If proven, local officials will face administrative sanctions, he said.

“There are rules to be followed. It’s up to the DILG secretary what he intends to do. There will be administrative sanctions if true,” he said.

Duterte said the illegal drugs have proliferated in the country because people in government who are into illegal drug operations allow it to happen.

He claimed there are now 600,000 drug users and pushers who have “surrendered.”

“Administratively, you’re dead,” he addressed the police on the list. “You separate yourself from the PNP. Do not destroy the young men and women who are true to their country diyan.  Huwag ninyong sirain ang PNP,” he said. (Antonio L. Colina IV / MindaNews)
