MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang insisted on the government’s right to bar Giacomo Filibeck from entering the Philippines.

Filibeck, a secretary-general of European socialists is a critic of the Duterte administration’s war on drugs.

The EU political party official was invited by the Akbayan Party-list Congress, but was denied access to the country upon his arrival at the Mactan-Cebu International Airport.

“We are not obliged to allow anyone into our territory if we do not want them in our territory. Unfortunately, the socialist leader was one of those that we determine as a person that we don’t want to be in our territory. There is no rule under international law that will compel us to admit anyone whom we do not want to admit in our territory. That’s the exercise of sovereignty,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a press briefing. — UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines — Twelve individuals were arrested in a series of anti-illegal drugs operations of the Northern Police District (NPD) in Malabon City, Wednesday night.

Authorities first arrested alleged drug pusher Marvin Orano alias Mabong.

Mabon, meanwhile, named the 11 individuals he has been supplying with illegal drugs.

Eighty-four grams of suspected shabu, two hand grenades, a gun, and ammunition were seized from the arrested suspects.

Meanwhile, John Paul Torres alias JP was not able to resist arrest during a buy-bust operation in Columbia Corner St. Mary’s Street, in Cubao Quezon City, Wednesday night.

An informant tipped off authorities about the suspect’s peddling of illegal drugs, and that many of his customers were tricycle drivers in Cubao.

Six sachets of suspected shabu were confiscated by the Quezon City police from Torres.

“According sa SDEU, yung kanilang intelligence report ay nagbebenta sa mga tricycle driver rin dito sa barangay na ito,” said QCPD Station 7 commander PSupt. Louise Benjie Tremor.

(According to SDEU intelligence report, he sells to tricycle drivers here in this barangay.)

Torres, on the other hand, denied selling the contraband but admitted to using illicit drugs.

“Kapag may gagawin akong importante, kunyari may gagawin ako sa bahay, gagawin sa motor. Pampagana lang po,” said the suspect.

(When I am doing something important, like fixing my motorcycle. It energizes me.)

The suspect will face charges for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. — Bernard Dadis | UNTV News & Rescue

The confiscated drugs have a street value of P1- million.

Berdugo even used her nephew, who is a minor, in carrying the said contraband.

The suspect will be charged with violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, while Berdugo’s nephew will be turned over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Meanwhile, a woman died after being gunned down at Block 1, Barangay Western Bicutan, Taguig City at past 9 pm on Tuesday.
