Senator Antonio Trillanes on Wednesday warned President Rodrigo Duterte that he “will pay” for the crimes he had committed to push his war on drugs.

He issued the warning after the President slammed him for downplaying the result of a recent Social Weather Station (SWS) which showed that majority of Filipinos believed that the number of drug users has declined.

“Mr. Duterte, let me break it down for you like you’re a 5-year old. If you were able to reduce the number of addicts because they were rehabilitated; the drug lords were imprisoned; and the shabu supply stopped; then you can say that your anti-drug program is effective,” Trillanes said.

“But, no, their number reduced because you did the most simplistic, most ruthless and most barbaric option there is: you had your countrymen killed even on mere suspicion of drug use,” he said.

“And for those crimes, mananagot ka!” the opposition senator said.

In an earlier statement regarding the said SWS survey on the reduction of drug addicts, Trillanes chided Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo for bragging about Duterte’s accomplishment in his war on drugs.

“Since libu-libo ang pinatay nyo na addicts without due process and without giving them the opportunity to be rehabilitated, di ba natural lang na mababawasan ang addicts?” he stressed.

“So, what are you celebrating, Mr. Panelo, the ruthlessness of your boss?” Trillanes said.

Mauna na NBI: House panel cancels probe on PDEA-PNP ‘misencounter’

By Billy Begas

The House Committee on Dangerous Drugs has canceled the scheduled hearing on Monday on the shootout between elements of the Philippine National Police and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency.

Committee chairman and Surigao del Norte Rep. Robert Ace Barbers confirmed the cancellation of the hearing.

“Please be advised that in light of Pres. DU30’s instruction to the NBI to conduct an impartial investigation on the PNP and PDEA incident , our scheduled Committee hearing/investigation in aid of legislation on Monday, March 1, 2021 , is temporarily suspended as a courtesy to and in order not to hinder the ongoing investigation…will keep you all posted on the developments,” the advisory sent to media read.

The House panel was supposed to determine if there is a need to amend the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act (Republic Act 9165) to prevent the repeat of the shootout between PNP and PDEA agents last February 24 outside the Ever Gotesco Mall in Commonwealth Ave., Quezon City.

Ping thanks IATF for uniform travel protocols

Sen. Panfilo Lacson on Saturday thanked the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) for approving uniform travel protocols.

Lacson said local travel restrictions should be left to the local government units since the local leaders know the situation on the ground.

“Thank you, for the sake of the country’s economy. Local travel restrictions should be left to the LGUs. Their leaders know their local conditions better than anybody else in the national government,” he said in a post on his Twitter account.

Malacañang earlier announced the IATF had approved uniform travel protocols for LGUs.
