PDEA cites Navotas City govt for successful campaign vs drugs


By Arlie O. Calalo 08/01/2010 The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) has cited the Navotas City government for being an outstanding partner and counterpart in the fight against illegal drugs. The recognition was made during PDEAs 8th year anniversary under the theme: PDEA: Kabalikat ng Bawat Pamilya Laban sa Ipinagbabawal na Droga, according to Mayor John Rey Tiangco who received the award for the city government. Through its Navotas Anti-Drug Abuse Council (NADAC), the local government has been cited for its outstanding accomplishments, commitment and selfless dedication in conducting antiillegal drug advocacies within the city in line with PDEAs Demand Reduction Program. NADAC has been on continuous and untiring services through anti-drug abuse campaign and conduct related activities with regard to its advocacy to fight illegal drugs in the locality in all levels of education, churches and communities. The citys outstanding anti-drug abuse programs include anti-illegal drug prevention lecture on all public and private elementary schools; opening of the drug testing center under the city health office; conduct of random drug testing to all city officials and employees; Kilos Kontra Droga campaign with the local police; Rock-rakan Kontra Droga with the Sangguniang Kabataan Federation; Inter-School Anti-Drugs and Sports Competition; Text Mayor and Text Police Kontra Droga.

Tiangco said the recognition was a result of the efforts by all sectors in Navotas who are always united in combatting the dreaded menace that jeopardizes the future of society. I am appealing to all Navoteos to please be vigilant at all times and lets do our share in the fight against illegal drugs, he said. Tiangco sternly warned drug peddlers to stop their illegal drug activities, saying the city government and its partners will not stop until they are all neutralized. This is a strong warning to all drug pushers and users who plan to operate here in our city. We will apply the full force of the law against you, Tiangco said. PHILIPPINE Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in Northern Mindanao vowed to continue its preventive programs on substance abuse by going into information awareness campaigns in various schools. This, as the nationwide results of the Random Drug Testing (RDT) conducted among high school students last year showed Northern Mindanao as among the highest, with 17 positively screened students, 11 of them tested positive for marijuana. Joseph Theodore Atilla, Investigation Agent III and PDEA's deputy director, said the awareness campaign will be conducted to inform the students on the ill-effects and symptoms of drug use and how communities can do their share to stop the menace. He said PDEA would also conduct tactical operation against those who are involved in selling illegal drugs. "But with the small number of PDEA agents, we could not fully intensify our campaign without the help and cooperation of the community," Atilla told Sun.Star Cagayan. As mandated in Section 21, Article II of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2007, Atilla said PDEA has been conducting pro-active activities to reduce drug demands, which include information drives particularly in various schools within its area of jurisdiction. Based on the RDT, marijuana is still popular as the top drug choice among students and Paul Oaminal, vice chair of the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB), confirmed this recently. The DDB is one of the agencies that conducted the RDT along with the Department of Education and Department of Health. "I believed that marijuana is the top choice because of its accessibility and affordability plus the fact that it was accentuated by myth that it is medicinal and has no side effects," Oaminal said. However, Atilla cautioned that it does not follow because it would still depend on the area.

"For example, in Manila, shabu is popular there, not marijuana," he said. In Northern Mindanao, the top drug choice is marijuana because of the mountainous areas that may be used as marijuana plantation, particularly Bukidnon where elements of PDEA, together with the military and Philippine Air Force, uprooted some P21 million worth of the illegal drug recently. With this, Atilla urged the parents to be more vigilant in keeping an eye to their children, like observing their actions and attitude. For his part, Oaminal said this problem should be addressed by school authorities and the community as well. He said the youth must be thoroughly informed that marijuana has no medicinal purpose and that it has ill-effects on their minds and bodies.

LGUs urged to pass ordinance vs drugs


CEBU CITY Aiming to further strengthen its fight against the still rampant use of illegal drugs, the office of the Dangerous Drug Board (DDB) has urged local government units (LGUs) to enact an ordinance for the creation of an administrative board for drug-related public nuisance. DDB Vice Chair Paul Oaminal made the appeal after finding out that despite the circular issued by the Department of Interior and Local Governments (DILG) for the strengthening of local governments support in the anti-drug campaign, a number of local councils have failed to enact such ordinance. Oaminal explained that the said ordinance which is based under Section 52 of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, urges cities or municipalities to create, through an ordinance, an administrative board hearing complaints regarding drug-related cases. Under RA 9165, any place or premises used on two or more occasions as a site of unlawful sale or delivery of dangerous drugs may be declared a public nuisance. Meanwhile, a Board Declaration, to be created under the said ordinance, will prohibit the conduct, operation, or maintenance of any illegal drug-related business or activity on premises where such public nuisance occurs. The Cebu-based DDB official also revealed that one of the reasons why majority of LGUs have not yet declared their area as drug free is because they find it hard to comply with certain regulations, particularly Regulation No. 2, Series of 2007 issued by the DDB which requires the conduct of barangay drug-clearing operations in its Pre-Operation Phase. Oaminal is set to visit regions in the Visayas and Mindanao next week to meet with local Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and Philippine National Police personnel and push for the

passage of the ordinance. The various Chiefs of Police in the provinces shall serve as the lead officer in the implementation of barangay drug-clearing operations.

DILG chief asks barangay officials to support national antidrug campaign


February 2, 2011, 2:00pm MANILA, Philippines (PNA) -- Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo on Wednesday asked local government units (LGUs), particularly the barangays, to support the governments anti-drug campaign. Robredo also warned his office would impose sanctions against barangay officials who would refuse to act as witnesses in the governments anti-drug campaign, particularly in the implementation of search or arrest warrants against known drug pushers and drug dens in their areas.

The DILG chief issued the warning amid reports coming from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) that some village officials in Metro Manila refuse to act as witnesses in their anti-drug drive. Robredo cited Section 60 of the Local Government Code of 1991 that states that the DILG Secretary can discipline, suspend or remove from office any local government official, including barangay officials, for dereliction of duty. During a consultative meeting with the local peace and order council of Quezon City led by Mayor Herbert Bautista the other day, Director Wilkins Villanueva told the DILG chief of their predicament with barangay captains in their anti-drug campaign. It is the duty of barangay officials to act as witnesses in the implementation of all our search warrants, especially in known drug dens and tianggehans. But some of them refuse to go with us, afraid of the people who are subject of the warrants. In other occasions, the subjects of the warrant are their relatives, Villanueva said. In response, the DILG chief said one of the duties and functions of the barangay officials was to enforce all laws and ordinances which are applicable within their areas and perform duties and functions that are prescribed by law for the maintenance of peace and order. Robredo assured Villanueva that the DILG would issue a corresponding memorandum to all barangay officials next week to remind them that it is part of their obligation to help and assist government law enforcement authorities perform their functions and duties. The DILG chief said it is the priority of President Benigno Aquino III to address the growing illegal drug problem in the country. Three weeks ago, Robredo said, the DILG sent a team to the PDEA office to discuss improved coordination between the DILG, the PDEA and local chief executives in the implementation of the governments anti-drug campaign.
