More than 30 WV cops linked to drugs – PNP


More than 30 of the 391 police officers across the country that President Rodrigo Duterte said were in the government’s drug watch list were from Region 6, according to Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Oscar Albayalde.

Albayalde said some of these policemen already left the police service or became inactive.

He did not specify the provinces or cities in the region the policemen were from.

Albayalde said the PNP’s counterintelligence division is tracking these policemen “so that we can gather evidence then file charges against them.”

He added: “Pwede silang mag-surrender for adjudication.

The PNP chief also warned them to stop their illegal activities.

The President’s list covered the July 2016 to August 2019 period.
