“Complete” at “unqualified” support ang ipinangakong suporta ng PNP sa anumang resulta ng DOJ investigation sa homicides na dulot diumano ng police anti-illegal drug operations.
“We are confident that the DOJ investigation will succeed in establishing culpability of PNP Units and personnel who may have stepped beyond the limits of their authority out of overzealousness, inadequate training or lack of supervision,” pahayag ni PNP Chief, PGEN Dionardo B. Carlos.
Kumpiyansa naman ang PNP sa impartiality ng nasabing imbestigasyon.
“Let the axe fall where it may, the PNP will accept whatever findings of the DOJ probe, to which the PNP assures its complete and unqualified support and cooperation. If the PNP’s cooperation with the DOJ will serve the same purpose required by ICC, then the PNP will gladly extend the same level of cooperation,” dagdag pa ng hepe.
Sinabi rin ng PNP na itutuloy lang nila ang momentum ng kampanya laban sa ilegal na droga na may significant impact sa pagsugpo sa drug trafficking sa bansa kung saan sangkot ang transnational drug syndicates at local producers ng methamphetamine products.
“But we want to restart the campaign with a clean slate by ensuring that the mistakes of the past will remain in the past, and the reinvigorated campaign will bring the anti-illegal drugs campaign to a higher level, totally responsive to the requirements of due process, transparency and public accountability yet with more teeth and greater efficiency,” paliwanag ng Chief PNP.
Indikasyon diumano ang pagtaas ng street-level price ng shabu na unti-unting nauubos ang suplay ng ilegal na droga sa market na dulot ng supply reduction strategy ng mga pulis atbp. law enforcement agencies.
