    VP Leni asks: Why the ‘alarm’ over upcoming report on anti-drug campaign?

    Despite short stint at ICAD, Robredo determined to help improve fight vs. illegal drugs

    Vice President Leni Robredo said her report on the government’s anti-illegal drug campaign, whose release she pushed back in deference to the opening of the Southeast Asian Games last Saturday, is intended to help improve efforts to combat illegal drugs by addressing issues in current practices.

    This as several officials have taken a defensive stance on the upcoming report, with some even goading the Vice President, after she promised to tell the public about her findings and recommendations from her 18-day stint as co-chair of the Inter-agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD).

    “[H]indi ko alam kung bakit ganoon iyong reaksyon. Parang sinasabi tinatakot ko sila? Bakit ko sila tatakutin, eh iisa lang ako, ang dami-dami nila?” she said. “Iyong recommendations ko, nakabase sa mga natuklasan na patungkol sa operations ng anti-illegal drugs campaign.”

    “Para [ito] sa ikabubuti ng kampanya,” she added. “At tingin ko, na iyong mga nakatrabaho ko, alam na well-intentioned tayo, na hinahanapan natin papaano ba mapapabuti, papaano maaayos iyong mga gusot, ano iyong mga recommendations natin na baguhin sa kampanya.”

    Noting the “excitement” of some officials to hear her report, VP Leni said she decided to step back in the meantime, as support and “deference” to athletes competing for the Philippines in the SEA Games.

    On Sunday’s show, VP Leni spoke for the first time about President Rodrigo Duterte’s order to remove her as ICAD co-chair. She debunked anew the false allegations that the President and his allies have thrown against her—including her purported failure to reach out to barangay captains and agencies in charge of law enforcement and rehabilitation efforts, as well as her supposed fixation on running to foreign allies.

    VP Leni noted that she had dutifully submitted weekly reports to the President, which contained details that would disprove some of these false claims.

    The Vice President said she will still be submitting her third report to Malacañang, but she decided to make these findings and recommendations public in order to bring them forward for discussion.

    “[P]ara sigurado lang kami na mabasa o malaman iyong mga recommendations namin kaya sinabi ko ime-make public,” she said.

    “Ime-make public namin kasi sayang naman kung nasa desk niya lang, hindi binabasa. Ime-make public para ma-consider iyong mga recommendations.”
