Espenido suspects politicians behind his inclusion in Drug List

Espenido suspects politicians behind his inclusion in Drug List

Is this is a case wherein the hero is in truth and fact is apparently the villain?

Beleaguered Lt. Col. Jovie Espenido, considered as one of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s top enforcers in the governments declared drug war, suspects politicians to be behind his inclusion in the drug list.

In a telephone interview with the Inquirer, Espenido asks : “Why is the PNP [Philippine National Police] treating me this way?”

Espenido  was apparently frustrated as he joined 355 other policemen set for validation by the national adjudication board in Camp Crame in Quezon city.

He pointed out that, seeing himself as a public servant, he had enforced the campaign against illegal drugs as ordered and undertaken it to the best of his abilities.

Finding himself in the narcolist was a shock to him and having to undergo another adjudication process, excruciating.

As far as 2017, he already requested the PNP Directorate for Intelligence for the removal of his name in the narcolist, there was even a resolution then.

He felt hurt, when his superiors whom he toiled for in the war on drugs still doubts his character, so much so that his name is still in the narcolist

Espenido does not rule out the possibility that there are politicians involved whether local or national that could have influenced the inclusion of his name in the narcolist.

He maintained that he had never gotten involved in the illegal narcotics trade, saying: “As a policeman I have always fought illegal drugs, moreso now that President Duterte declared war against it. Why would I now get involved in illegal drugs?”
