(NOVEMBER 13, 2019) – Vice President Leni Robredo on Wednesday had a “comprehensive” meeting with representatives from United States law enforcement agencies to explore possibilities to improve the administration’s campaign against illegal drugs.
Robredo, who has been appointed as co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD), said representatives from the US State Department ‘s International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) shared their experiences and best practices in combating illegal drugs.
“Napag-usapan din ang mga kakulangan sa kasalukuyang kampanya at ang mga tulong na maaari pa nilang maibigay para lalong paigtingin ang kampanya laban sa droga,” Robredo said in a statement.
They also discussed ways to set up a clear “baseline data” regarding the drug situation in the country, as well as how to strengthen the drug-use prevention and community-based drug rehabilitation programs.
Robredo had earlier said rehabilitation of drug dependents is important measure to determine the success of the drug war.
They also plan to revisit the Republic Act No. 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 for possible amendments to cope with the current trend.
The vice president earlier said she also wanted to know how the U.S. government can help local law enforcement agencies in terms of intelligence sharing.
President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed Robredo last week as the ICAD’s co-chair. Since then, she had repeatedly stated she wanted to avoid “senseless killings” in the drug war.
Meanwhile, Robredo lauded law enforcement agencies on Twitter for effectively confiscating P6.8 million and P5.7 million worth of shabu in Makati and Tondo, respectively.
She also noted how it was done “without sacrificing innocent lives.”
Saludo kami sa law enforcement agencies na bahagi ng mga operasyon kung saan nasabat ang P6.8-M na halaga ng shabu sa Makati at P5.7-M na halaga ng shabu sa Tondo. This was done without sacrificing innocent lives. Hopeful that we can continue this in our fight vs illegal drugs. pic.twitter.com/HlHlEDBBMQ
