A new digital billboard unveiled just outside Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters in Camp Crame, features a running tally of their accomplishments in President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs.
The billboard tallies the “number of drug dependents captured or surrendered” at 1,326,742 as of December 27.
The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency is the lead in anti-narcotics operations according to the law. However, it seems that the PNP is in the spotlight in the drugs war for better or worse.
Dela Rosa has vehemently denied that the police has resorted to summary killings in the name of the drugs war.
The PNP Chief insists that most of those killed are drug personalities.
