MANILA  (PNA) – More than 700,000 suspected drug users and pushers in the country surrendered to police authorities while 22,503 people were arrested in line with ‘Oplan Tokhang’ and ‘Project Double Barrel’, the initiatives of the Philippine National Police (PNP) to wipe out illegal drugs and criminality in the country.

As of 6:00 a.m. Tuesday, the PNP have knocked 1,634,111 houses of suspected drug personalities that resulted to the surrender of 732,698 drug suspects, 679,830 from these were self-confessed drug users while 52,868 were identified as drug pushers.

Meanwhile, a total of 22,503 drug suspects were arrested while 1,377 drug personalities were killed during police operations.

Under ‘Oplan Tokhang’, station commanders will ask barangay (villages) captains to submit a list of residents who are into illegal drugs, whether these are pushers, dealers, users and couriers.

The police intelligence unit will then verify the report and check if these persons are indeed involved in drugs as there are instances where barangay captains themselves are behind the illegal drug trade while some list down names of their rivals.

PNP Chief Director General Ronald Dela Rosa was satisfied on the results of the campaign against drugs and ordered the cops to intensify the campaign to eradicate the illegal drugs as well as crimes.

”We are winning the war on drugs but still, I want to make sure that victory so I want the police force to peform better,” the PNP Chief noted.

Job creation is still one of our priorities: DOLE
[No Comment | ]

MANILA, Oct. 5 (PNA) – The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) said on Wednesday that job creation is still one of the priorities of the department under the Duterte administration.

“What I can tell you is that in the Department of Labor, we have generated new employment opportunities…Nag- increase ng mga 12 percent. It is an increase. Malaki na iyon,” said DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III in a weekly media forum in Manila.

Secretary Bello said that aside from creation of additional jobs, the DOLE is also concerned with addressing the problem of illegal contractualization work schemes and increasing the minimum wage of workers in response to the claim of the Employers’ Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP) that the government has not been putting focus on job creation.

Bello said that the 12 percent increase in employment since the Duterte administration took over almost 100 days ago was proof of the government’s accomplishments in the labor front.

On Tuesday, ECOP Chair Emeritus Donald Dee assailed the DOLE for being more concerned in advancing their personal “philosophical” advocacies than creating jobs for Filipinos.

In particular, Dee pointed at the DOLE’s push for the proposed PHP125 daily wage hike across-the-board, which is already being deliberated upon by all Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boards (RTWPBs).

“Anyway, I could agree with the stand of ECOP na dapat ang priority natin is job creation. So hindi naman namin sinasabi na hindi priority ang job creation when we consider the salary adjustment. We are also looking into job creation and placement,” Bello said.

According to Bello, the PHP125 daily wage hike across-the-board is an initiative of DOLE Undersecretary Joel Maglunsod in his personal capacity.

“That proposed across-the-board wage increase of PHP125 ay personal niya (Maglunsod). That is not the position of DOLE. It is not the position of the President,” the Labor chief said.

He, however, stressed that the DOLE, as a whole, is similarly interested in increasing the salaries of workers alongside the creation of job opportunities.

“But this has to go through a long process. We have to consult all the stakeholders,” he added.

MANILA, Oct 5 (Mabuhay) – Some military officers have expressed concern over President Rodrigo Duterte’s threats to cut ties with the United States but it was “nowhere near enough to launch a coup,” Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said on Wednesday.

While no one has approached him “physically,” Trillanes said he has been getting word about the “sentiments” of some military officers and men.

“But let just say that by and large, the AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines) is very supportive of the President and they are loyal to the chain of command so there are no factions within the armed forces,” he said.

Asked what those sentiments were, the senator said: “It can’t be generalized. I believe some are concerned about the direction the President is going particularly ending ties with the US armed forces because these ties go way back and it’s not easy to do that.”

Asked again if the sentiments were coming from the soldiers, Trillanes said: “No. Some officers randomly expressing concerns, but it’s nowhere near enough to launch a coup.

“From what I’m getting is nowhere near that but again by and large, soldiers, the rank and file, enlisted personnel, junior officers are happy with the apparent concern of the President when he visited their camps and he promised them to double their salaries so who would not agree with that? So by and large the morale is very high,” said the senator, who led a failed mutiny against then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Trillanes said he saw nothing wrong with the President visiting the soldiers and promising them higher pay if he said the concern was genuine and the intention was to uplift their morale.

Looking at the profile and history, however, the senator said there could also be risks once the President gets the loyalty of the armed forces.

“Because once he would be able to harness the loyalty and support of the soldiers to a point that it’s a blind following or cult following, then he can easily shift or redirect their fire from supposed fight against criminality and illegal drugs and terrorism. He can easily shift to other targets like the political opposition and the effective and totalitarian control of society,” Trillanes pointed out.

“That’s a risk and it’s so easy to do that once you’re there,” he said.

Trillanes also denied Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco’s reported claim that unidentified businessmen linked with the Liberal Party have allegedly approached him to plot Duterte’s ouster.

“No. No one (has approached me) so I believe that is a misdirection probably to justify some draconian measures that they put in place in the future in the guise of serving democracy or probably to deflect from the issues, the criticisms they’ve been facing right now as a result of the different or numerous diplomatic blunders of President Duterte,” he said.

The senator earlier said that there was no need to launch a coup against the Duterte administration as it has been “self-destructing” anyway. (MNS)
