Mas alam ng PDEA gagawin! Guevarra: Robredo wrong to suggest DDB as ICAD head
Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra lectured Vice President Leni Robredo for insisting that the Dangerous Drugs Board (DBB) should be the one which should chair the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD).
“The reason why PDEA, and ot DBB as chairman of ICAD, because the thrust of the ICAD is on operations,” Guevarra said in Manila recently.
“The DDB is policy making, not enforcement on the ground,” he pointed out.
On the other hand, Guevarra said the DDB remains an important member of the ICAD.
“Ang Dangerous Drugs Board provide guidance kasi sila ang nag formulate ng policy therefore dapat meron isa duon taga DDB reminding the other members na ‘hey we have a policy on this, policy on that’,” he explained.
“But the overall chairmanship remains with the PDEA because the main focus of the ICAD is operations/enforcement,” he reiterated.
