The Philippines will remain relentless in its fight against illegal drugs and its distribution, President Benigno S. Aquino III said on Thursday, following the verdict of the Chinese Supreme People's Court (SPC), which affirmed a lower court's ruling on the imposition of the death penalty on a Filipino national in connection with a drug trafficking case.
In an interview, the President said the government would never be tired in warning the people against being victimized by drug syndicates to transport their contraband.
“Wala hong tigil tayong mag-warning doon sa mga nalilinlang for instance na maging drug mule,” the President said.
He said that his administration was working towards strengthening the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency to increase the anti-illegal drug agency’s ability “to interdict them (drug syndicates) especially within our shores going out and coming in.”
