PDEA TO RELEASE 'NARCO' LIST OF BRGY. EXECS UPON PRES. DUTERTE'S ORDER



Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Director General Aaron Aquino said he will disclose the names of barangay officials involved in the illegal drug trade if President Rodrigo Duterte will order such matter.

PDEA spokesperson Derrick Carreon made the clarification on Thursday morning.

Aquino announced on Wednesday that PDEA would publicize the list of 289 barangay officials from Eastern Visayas who are allegedly involved in illegal drugs.

He pointed out the erring barangay chairmen and kagawads must be exposed so that voters would not vote for them in the coming polls.
