30 kilograms of illegal drugs sealed in Chinese tea packets confiscated by authorities in Pasig City on September 16, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – Some P204-million worth of suspected shabu (crystal meth) were confiscated by authorities during a raid on a rented condominium unit in Pasig City on Monday.

Joint operatives of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) stormed the condominium unit in Barangay Rosario at past 7 p.m. following information that this was being used as a warehouse for illegal drugs.

Authorities nabbed a suspect, identified as Manolito Lugo Carlos alias “Lito” and “Tonge,” who was allegedly working for a detainee at the New Bilibid Prisons.

He acts as the main distributor of the said illegal drugs in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

“Tayo’y naniniwala na wala namang droga sa loob ng Bilibid. Walang droga doon unlike doon sa mga impormasyon or mga revelation before. Pero just the same, doon pa rin nanggagaling ang utos, ang mga order kung saan, kailan, kanino, paano dadalhin, idi-distribute–saan kukunin itong mga items, saan dadalhin itong mga items,” NCRPO chief Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar said.

Recovered from the suspect was a total of 30 kilograms of illegal drugs sealed in Chinese tea packets which were similar to illegal drugs confiscated by authorities in previous operations.

The arrested suspect, who was brought to the NCRPO office, will face charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. RRD (with details from Correspondent Asher Cadapan Jr.)

PDEA: BuCor released three convicted Chinese drug lords despite PDEA’s opposition

Aileen Cerrudo   •   September 10, 2019

The Bureau of Corrections has released three convicted Chinese drug lords despite the opposition of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).

In an exclusive report of UNTV News reporter Lea Ylagan, The Bureau of Pardons and Parole (BPP) wrote to PDEA for an opinion on a possible executive clemency for around 30 drug convicts.

Based on PDEA’s response, 15 of them no longer have pending cases hence the approval of their release.

However, PDEA opposed the release of 13 convicted Chinese drug lords due to the severity of their cases.

Despite PDEA’s opposition, BuCor still ordered the release of three convicted Chinese drug lords last June 4, 2019 which include 14 other foreign drug convicts.

This is proven by the list of 1,914 convicts released by BuCor which was exclusively obtained by UNTV News.

PDEA Spokesperson Dir. Derrick Carreon said they are dismayed by the BuCor’s said action.

“Tayo po ay sumagot sa liham na pinadala sa atin ng Bureau of Pardons and Parole at hindi na natin idinitalye iyong ating opposition doon sa certain candidates for grant of executive clemency kung saan iyong 13 doon ay may existing pang mga kaso kaya atin pong tinututulan, (We responded to the letter sent by the Bureau of Pardons and Parole and we did not expounded on our opposition to certain candidates for grant executive clemency where 13 of them still have existing cases).” he said.

Carreon added they are prepared to cooperate with the Philippine National Police (PNP) to rearrest drug convicts after the 15-day deadline given by President Rodrigo Duterte.
