Some WV mayors still on drug list


There are mayors in Western Visayas who are in the drug watch list of the Department of Interior and Local Government, Secretary Eduardo Año disclosed yesterday.

While he withheld their names, Año, who used to be the Armed Forces chief of staff, said that they are now in the process of building up cases against them.

He added that the concerned local chief executives are already aware that they are on the list.

A self-confessed former illegal drugs courier surfaced earlier and linked seven government officials and 19 police officers in Negros Occidental to the illegal drug trade.

If you are involved in illegal drugs, sooner you will be arrested, Año said.

He reiterated his instructions for PNP commanders to enforce the law without fear or favor, in line with the May 13 elections.

Año added that a nationwide revamp is now ongoing among police commanders, who have occupied their positions for six months or more.

We want this election to be peaceful and orderly, he stressed.*
