President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed Gilbert de la Cruz Cruz as Permanent Member of the Dangerous Drugs Board.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the appointment of Cruz was “timely and relevant” citing his stint with the police force.
“The fight against illegal drugs is the centerpiece program of the Duterte administration,” Roque said in a statement Thursday.
“We therefore consider the appointment of Mr. Cruz as timely and relevant with his previous work at the Philippine National Police,” he also said.
Cruz is a member of Philippine National Police Academy Class 1986.
