We’re winning war on drugs - PNP Chief Albayalde



The Duterte administration is already on the secong and last half of its six year term, so much has happened and yet there is still a lot of things to do.

Philippine National Police (PNP) has just made a statement through its PNP Chief General Oscar Albayalde that the country is “definitely winning the war against illegal drugs.”


Albayalde explains that the success of the drug war is manifested by what he described as an improvement in the peace and order situation across the country.

“This is a clear manifestation that we are winning the war against illegal drugs, dahil isa ito sa resulta sa kampanya natin sa illegal na droga, yung pag-improve natin sa ating peace and order situation dito, hindi lang sa Metro Manila pero buong bansa yan,” he said during a press conference.
The relentless and bloody war against illegal drugs has been on criticized by both foreign and local after the police campaign resulted in the death of at least 6,000 people in official police operations.
The PNP Chief rebutted the criticisms, saying that as the war on drugs continues on its fourth year, the PNP has suffered 50 policemen killed in action and another 144 injured.

These incidents prove that there is violent resistance by drug suspects during police operations, Albayalde added.
“Fifty police officers killed is perhaps the painful proof that our detractors need for them to accept the fact that slain drug suspects indeed put up violent resistance to evade the law. Or do they want more dead lawmen to convince them some more?” he added.
As per the PNP a  total of 240,565 drug suspects have been arrested in over 150,000 anti-drug operations from July 1, 2016 to the present.
