PRESIDENT Ferdinand Marcos Jr. led the inspection of over two tons of shabu with an estimated market value of P13.3 billion in Alitagtag, Batangas.

The illegal drugs were seized on April 15 by the Philippine National Police (PNP) at a checkpoint in Barangay Pinagkrusan,

Marcos said, the illegal drugs was the “biggest drug haul in Philippine history” without shedding blood or lives lost.

“This is the biggest shipment of shabu na nahuli natin, but not one person died. Walang namatay, walang nagputukan, walang nasaktan. Basta’t in-operate natin nang dahan-dahan, ‘yun naman dapat ang approach,” Marcos said.

President Marcos said respecting human rights even in drug war operations is what matters most in his administration while ensuring to put an end to illegal drugs operations and the entry of prohibited narcotics into the Philippines.

“Para sa akin, ‘yun dapat ang approach sa drug war na ang pinaka-importante is matigil natin ang pag-ship ng mga drugs dito sa pagpasok sa Pilipinas. Pero the one thing that’s clear, pinasok ito, hindi ito galing dito sa Pilipinas,” Marcos said.

The President warned drug personalities that the government will go after them.

“Bahala kayo sa ginagawa ninyo basta’t tuloy-tuloy lang kami. Aabutan din namin kayo. Maliit lang ang Pilipinas,” Marcos said.

The President emphasized that the consficated illegal drugs were not from the Philipines.

President Marcos said that his administration is serious about the illegal drugs campaign as he assured the Filipino people that they will run after illegal drugs syndicates including the powerful ones, or even those connected with the government, or politicians.

He emphasized that illegal drugs have no place in his administration.

“Patuloy talaga, marami talaga tayong nahuhuli. This is the approach that we are taking to drug war. Ang ating ginagawa, we take apart, binabaklas natin ‘yung mga sindikato, kahit sinuman ang nakita natin may kasabwat, may kasabwat dito sa drug trade kahit sinuman,” he said.

“Kahit pulitiko na powerful, o pulis o kung sinuman ay talagang iniimbestigahan natin kaya’t nagkaroon ng ganitong klaseng mga operation at nakahuli tayo ng kalakilaki na 1.8 tons,” the chief executive added.

President Marcos said the government’s anti-illegal drug operation will continue as he emphasized that “there’s no silver bullet” to this operation.
