IF the Duterte administration is to reach the struggle on medication, it has to cease the wide-scale smuggling, detained Sen. Leila de Lima mentioned on Wednesday.
“Angry words and bullets are not enough,” mentioned De Lima, a critic of the President’s struggle on medication amid the unabated extrajudicial killings (EJKs) of suspected drug sellers and drug customers.
She mentioned there has to be a coverage that will fight illegal medication “on all fronts and vigilance to properly implement them.”
“All players must be well equipped to perform their functions. If we provide our police force with guns and bullets, we should provide our customs officials with proper equipment as well,” she mentioned referring to the P6.four billion value of shabu which slipped by means of the Bureau of Customs.
De Lima added, “To borrow words from Macbeth, our war on drugs, as it is, is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing except dead bodies.”
