A suspected drug pusher lies lifeless on the ground after being gunned down during a drug raid.

 

National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief P/Dir. Oscar Albayalde said in an interview on the program “Get It Straight with Daniel Razon,” that the Filipino people should not worry over reported extra judicial killings in the country.

“Gusto nating sabihin sa ating mga kababayan, lately merong SWS na natatakot daw sila. Well, sa atin naman po siguro kung wala naman tayong ginagawang kasalanan or wala tayong ginagawang labag sa batas, whatsoever, wala siguro tayong dapat ikatakot,” Albayalde said.

This, amid the Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey that 78% of the respondents expressed fear of becoming a victim of EJK.

According to the PNP general, the Duterte administration’s campaign against illegal drugs prompted the decrease in NCR’s crime rate.

“Our crime rate particularly crime against properties like robbery, theft, most especially the carnapping, have lessened by almost 60%. This is the result of our campaign against illegal drugs,” he said.

The carnapping case had the biggest decline according to Gen. Albayalde.

Meanwhile, the NCRPO chief refuted that they have a “quota” scheme in their operations against illegal drugs.

“In fairness to our President, to our PNP chief, they never required any quota from us. I’m speaking for myself. When I was assigned to the NCRPO, our PNP chief has never ordered us to kill a particular number [of suspects] to meet a quota.”

To date, the general said, they are pursuing the modernization of the PNP. This includes procurement of new equipment and technology for their intelligence gathering that may help the government’s war on drugs. — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue
