PRO-6 Clears Lt. Col. Jovie Espenido of Narco Trade Links "Jovie is Clean"

Police Lieutenant Colonel Jovie Espenido is clean according to the Police Regional Office (PRO)-6 as they cleared the veteran police officer of any involvement in the illegal dr** trade.


As far as the PRO-6 is concerned, the controversial police officer, Lt. Col. Espenido is clean. "In the region, safe to say that we couldn't find any reliable information of their involvement. It's a national agency effort," Police Brigadier General Rene Pamuspusan, Western Visayas police director, said.



In an earlier reported which was sensationalized by the mainstream media, Lt. Col. Espenido, considered as the poster boy in the government's campaign against illegal d***, was part of the 357 active police officers who were on the PRRD (President Rodrigo Roa Duterte) narco list.

The Western Visayas Police Director confirmed in an interview with the media in Iloilo City, that there are 10 PRO-6 personnel, Espenido included, who were sent to the national command for adjudication.

“Espenido was cleared because there was no reliable information or validated report to show that he was involved in illegal drugs,” he said.

But since Espenido was only assigned at PRO-6 for barely four months, reports said that adjudication will also be conducted by his previous commands in PRO-8 and 11.



Lt. Col. Jovie Espenido made a name for himself as he was the former Police Chief in Albuera, Leyte and in Ozamiz City when their mayors were killed in the government's drug war.

The veteran police officer Espenido already breaks his silence as he stated that the PNP committed failure of intelligence on drug list. He believes that PNP officials, including top cop General Archie Gamboa, have failed him in verifrying information about him.

Espenido was quoted as saying "“It’s not only a failure, it's a frustration of the intelligence community," It was a failure of intelligence-gathering because hindi nila nai-process (they failed to process the information)."
