SORSOGON CITY, July 11, 2016 (Bicol Standard) — Gov. Robert Lee Rodrigueza has issued a directive to PNP Provincial Director Senior Supt. Ronaldo Cabral to inspect the Provincial Jail Compound for drugs and other contraband items.

This after the governor received reports that illegal drug activities are allegedly undertaken inside the Provincial Jail by inmates.

“Should there be any illegal drug or contraband inside the facility, the PNP may temporarily take over/augment the supervision and control, initiate/recommend prosecution of violators pursuant to the existing mandate of the PNP Provincial Director, Province of Sorsogon,” Rodrigueza said.

The directive is in line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s campaign against illegal drugs and criminality, the provincial chief executive added.
