Vice President Leni Robredo finally gave her report of the drug war after serving as the co-chairperson of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) for 18 days. Unsurprisingly, she gave the campaign a failing grade.
Robredo reported that the police only seized less than one percent of shabu in the past three years, emphasizing how Oplan Tokhang killed thousands of small-time drug users and bred a culture of abuse in the country.
“If this were an exam, the government’s score is 1 over 100,” Robredo said, adding that the Duterte administration’s anti-drug campaign is a failure.
According to Inquirer.net, Robredo urged Pres. Rodrigo Duterte to direct his focus on “strengthening the anti-drug abuse councils and community-based rehabilitation.” She also reiterated that law enforcement agencies should scrap Oplan Tokhang and implement new programs to effectively address the drug problem in the country.
