Manila cops vow sustained operations vs. illegal drugs

MANILAThe head of the Manila Police District (MPD) has vowed to step up their campaign against all forms of illegal drug activities in the organization's jurisdiction.

In a statement issued Friday, Manila Police Chief Supt. Joel Napoleon Coronel said their operations are aimed at making "Manila a better and safer place to live in."

Coronel issued the statement as MPD operatives, led by Senior Insp. Gemma Abarra, arrested Friday yet another suspect for drug violations in a checkpoint along Ramon Magsaysay Blvd. near Pureza St. in Sampaloc, Manila.

The suspect, Jessie Landencio, 35 and resident of Apitong St., Malanday, Marikina City, yielded one Honda XRM motorcycle and a small transparent plastic sachet containing white crystalline substance suspected to be shabu.

Some private individuals have filed a petition before a Manila court, questioning the validity of the Philippine National Police's circulars implementing MalacaAang's controversial war on drugs.(PNA)
