No let-up on illegal drug operations during holidays- PNP Chief Albayalde

Crime or the committing of it, knows no holiday.

Albayalde stressed that the anti-drug operations and increased PNP presence will ensure that this will be a season of merriment rather than a time for increased number of theft cases.

“We will not stop because we have dedicated personnel who conduct anti-illegal drugs operation…they will not be assigned to other duties and responsibilities during the Christmas season,” Albayalde said.

Oplan Sita was set upped by the PNP specifically different from that of other units since it will be in charge of police assistance desks in various churches as the holiday season is near.

“This is the season when the crime rate goes up, especially crimes against our properties,” said Albayalde. “But now, that would be a thing of the past.”

Real numbers shows that 4,900 drug suspects have already been killed under the police’s anti-drug operation, but local and international human rights groups have pegged the deaths at 20,000.

The PNP Chief, however, has been consistent in explaining that the State does not implement extrajudicial killings (EJK’s) as a State policy and that not all death cases are drug-related but are classified as deaths under investigation.

As per government records from July 2016 up to July 2018, a total of 4,410 drug personalities had been killed during 105,658 anti-drug operations conducted by government law enforcers from various agencies.
