President Rodrigo Duterte has warned ‘ninja cops’ that they will face consequences if they continue their involvement in illegal drugs.

During his speech at a corporate launch on Wednesday (September 25) in Parañaque, the president expressed disappointment over policemen who continue to do illegal activities.

“There are some people, like policemen, you have to beg, then they are at it again, and they sell drugs and they go scot-free and they think that they are the lords of this country,” he said.

“Well, I’m sorry to tell you, everybody dies in this world but you will go ahead first. Remember that,” he added.

Duterte is also willing to identify the cops involved in illegal drug recycling, according to Senator Christoper Lawrence ‘Bong’ Go.

The Senate has also authorized to disclose to the public the information regarding the said ninja cops.

First ICAD meeting with its new co-chair Vice President Leni Robredo

The Inter-agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) has launched the Anti-Illegal Drugs Information System (AIDIS) for the administration’s illegal drug campaign.

The Anti-Illegal Drugs Information System (AIDIS) is a web-based centralized information system that will store relevant information and figures on the illegal drugs problem from the different drug agencies.

The DILG said AIDIS contains graphs, charts, and other visual representations on other aspects of the anti-drug campaign, in the form of 6 dashboards: drug affectation, juvenile, offenders, operations, rehabilitation, and surrenderers.

In a statement, DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año said the AIDIS generate reliable data that we can use to map out our strategies and plans to further boost our anti-illegal drugs drive.

“AIDIS will help us tell the real story on how the government through its different drug enforcement agencies is really faring in the anti-illegal drugs drive,” he said.

Año said the system will only be accessible to authorized users from the various agencies involved in the anti-illegal drugs campaign, which includes the DILG, Department of Health (DOH), Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB), Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), Philippine National Police (PNP), and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).—AAC
