Albay police: 80 gov't workers, including politicians, surrender as drug users

In an interview by the BICOL STANDARD with Police Chief Inspector Arthur Ramirez Gomez, Spokesperson of Albay Provincial Police Office (PPO), he said that some of them are classified as coddlers, pushers or users of the illegal drugs.

“Their names are in our record, confirmed and validated,” he said.

Meanwhile, included in the same group are local politicians, including barangay officials, and other government employees who have earlier promised to cooperate in the ongoing anti-illegal drug campaign initiated by the Duterte administration.

Ramirez said the following is the breakdown of government employees and officials who have surrendered to the police: eight are police officers who have been formally charged with administrative cases; two enlisted personnel from the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and an agent of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).

In an earlier consolidated report, it was gathered that 161 barangay officials are in the list of drug surrenderees. These include 19 punong barangays, 76 barangay councilors, 7 treasurers, 3 secretaries, 54 tanods, and 2 other officials.
