VP may release drug war report late December, early January
MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo on Sunday said she was eyeing to release her drug war report in late December or early January.
Robredo was supposed to release the report last Oct. 16 but opted to defer it, saying that the relief operations in quake-hit areas in the Mindanao region should be given priority.
“If we can release it this December, we will release it this December. But if we can’t, if calamity-related events are not yet finished, maybe we will release it early January, after the New Year,” Robredo said in “BISErbisyong LENI,” her weekly show aired over AM radio station DZXL.
Robredo repeated her earlier pronouncement that the Palace would have nothing to worry about as her report would only contain recommendations to improve the campaign against drugs.
The vice president’s report stemmed from her brief stint co-chair of the administration’s Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD).
She was fired by President Rodrigo Duterte after only 18 days since her appointment.
