Duterte was clearly never sincere in appointing VP Leni Robredo as co-chair of the Inter-agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD). Now, Duterte looks like a fool, pasinto-sinto, by firing her after only two weeks.
Since the beginning, he has been afraid that she would discover from local officials and US intelligence how he actually protects the biggest drug lords under his mafia syndicate or crime family.
The people expect Robredo to expose the criminal operations of the Duterte drug empire and denounce how she has received no cooperation from Duterte and ICAD but attacks, disinformation and sabotage of her work as ICAD co-chair.
It is her duty to condemn the bogus character of Duterte’s so-called war on drugs. There is ample proof that Duterte and his close relatives and agents are responsible for the smuggling of illegal drugs.
More than ever it has become clear to the people that the problem of illegal drugs has worsened under the Duterte regime because it protects the drug lords as the suppliers and engages in mass murder at the expense of the poor people who are suspected of being drug users and pushers.
