    As the newly assigned Inter-agency Committee on Illegal Drugs (ICAD), the Vice President met with Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Director General Aaron Aquino. Afterwards, they convened with other ICAD member agencies at the Quezon City Reception House at 2:00 pm. It was attended by 45 agencies and sub-agencies that comprised the four clusters of ICAD—Enforcement Cluster, Rehabilitation and Reintegration Cluster, Justice Cluster, and Advocacy Cluster. In her opening remarks the Vice President emphasized the need to commend the agencies’ successes in anti-drug operations and at the same time reassess areas that need to be improved to put an end to senseless killings. “Baka panahon na para pag-isipan natin iyong pagpalit ng isang kampanya na mas epektibo pero walang namamatay senselessly. Naniniwala ako na sa lahat na police operations, anything can happen, pero iyong kinokontra natin iyong pinagpaplanuhan at pagpapatay ng mga walang kamuwang-muwang. Kaya iyong sa akin, iyon iyong aking posisyon about it—I feel so strongly about it—and I want to take this opportunity to contribute in whatever way I can. When the President appointed me as co-chair of PDEA in ICAD, I want to look at it as a signal that the President is open to listen to a fresh perspective about the entire campaign. I also want to look at it as an agreement that it is time for us to objectively assess what we have been doing over the past years.”
