Sen. Sotto Praises PNP on Anti-Drug Campaign Warns International Media's Highlights on EJK


Senator Vicente Sotto III who is known in the Senate as anti-drug advocate even before the victory of Pres. Rody Duterte praises the achievement of the Philippine National Police under Director Gen. Ronald Dela Rosa.


Despite the achievement of the PNP, the international media community keeps on highlighting the extra-judicial killings instead of the PNP's success.

During the resumption of the controversial hearing on EJK headed by Sen. Dick Gordon, Sen. Vicente Sotto III asked Gen. Bato Dela Rosa regarding the latest statistics regarding the anti-drug campaign in the Philippines as ordered by Pres. Rody Duterte.

The PNP Chief revealed during the Senate Hearing that there are 22, 387 arrested while there are 1,375 people were killed during buy-bust operations of the PNP who have attempted to fight against the policemen.

According to Sen. Tito Sotto he believes that the PNP deserves to be commended for their determination in eradicating the use of illegal drugs in the country. Despite the PNP's effort and their achievements, the international media company only highlights the killings happened in our country that saddens Sen. Sotto.

Sen. Sotto was quoted as saying "Around five person lang yung lumalaban, pero yun lang ang hina-highlight ng international media, yung lumalaban na napapatay. Hindi nila hina-highlight, they have not not highlighted the fact that you had 22,387 arrests in thi drug war, with 23,374 operations only from July 1 to the present." Sotto said.

The veteran senator, Sen. Tito Sotto even recalled how he burst ten years agoin the Congress that we need to fight illegal drug trades and yet, nobody listened to him.

He was quoted as saying "In the last 10 years before that, sigaw ako nang sigaw sa Senate floor. Kaya ako nagmamaktol dito sa Senate floor, halos every Congress mga anim o pito ang privilege speech ko tungkol sa gobyerno na labanan yung droga, walang nangyayari. Pasok dito, labas dito."

"Kaya itong nangyayaring ito ngayon, I am very interested with these statistics. You actually deserve congratulations."
