Here's the statement of Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella on Leni Robredo’s devious claims about the government’s drug war.

Eight months into our campaign against illegal drugs, Vice President Robredo, suddenly refers to an alleged "palit-ulo" scheme - which she mistakenly describes as substituting a relative for a missing drug personality.

While she has the right to speak freely on matters of public concern, she also has the responsibility to be careful with her statements especially avoiding unfounded allegations from questionable sources.

The Philippine National Police’s (PNP) "palit-ulo" scheme, which the Vice President gravely misunderstood, refers to a commitment of a drug suspect to provide assistance in the arrest of a "bigger fish" in the illegal drug syndicate, whether an up-line/superior/supplier of the arrested suspect, in exchange for lighter charges.

Just recently, the President signed Executive Order 15, creating an Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs and Anti-Illegal Drug Task Force, wherein the entire bureaucracy has been harnessed to assist in the implementation of the anti-illegal drugs campaign. The Committee is chaired by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), with the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB), DILG, DOJ, DOH, DepEd, DSWD, DTI, DA, DND, TESDA, PIA, PAO, OSG, PCG, PNP, NBI, BOC, Bureau of Immigration, AFP, and AMLC as members thereof.
