Lacson to PDEA, DDB: Refocus your efforts vs ‘big fish’

With law enforcers proving themselves capable of going after street peddlers, it is high time for the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and Dangerous Drugs Board to go after the so-called big fish.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson stressed this on Tuesday as he cited the need for stricter coordination at the upper levels against the entry of illegal drugs into the country.

“You have to refocus because the police are now capable of going after street peddlers. You have to concentrate on those at the higher levels,” he said at the Senate hearing on the budgets of the two agencies for 2019.

Lacson Backs P390-million DND ‘Love of Country Builders’ Program

Instead of being viewed as “pathetic dependents,” Filipino war veterans may soon have a better chance of inspiring young Filipinos to love their country.

This is the idea behind the Department of National Defense’s “Love of Country Builders” program, which Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is supporting.

“From one veteran to another although we don’t look like (veterans yet), approved, Sir, as far as the committee is concerned,” Lacson told DND Undersecretary and Philippine Veterans Affairs Office administrator Ernesto Carolina at a budget hearing for the DND.

Ping: Buhayin ang Tunay na Pagmamahal sa Bayan

Tutulong ang Mataas na Kapulungan ng Kongreso sa mithiin ng Department of National Defense (DND) na pasiglahin ang nananamlay na kultura ng mga Pinoy sa pagmamahal sa sariling bayan.

Ito ay makaraang isiwalat ni Senador Panfilo Lacson, miyembro ng Philippine Military Academy Class 1971, na personal niyang sinusuportahan ang programa ng DND na “Love of Country Builders” ng ahensiya na naglalayong muling buhayin ang dating kaugalian ng mga mamamayan na mahalin ang sariling bayan.

“From one veteran to another although we don’t look like (veterans yet), approved, Sir, as far as the committee is concerned,” banggit ni Lacson kay DND Undersecretary at Philippine Veterans Affairs Office administrator Ernesto Carolina sa pagdinig ng Senado sa panukalang badyet ng ahensiya.

Lacson, a member of PMA Class 1971, also said an investigation is in order into how the condition of Florendo Hall had been allowed to deteriorate.
