“In support of President Marcos’ vision towards a better life for Filipinos, the PNP will sustain its commitment to reduce crime, corruption and illegal drugs, and we will intensify our police operations against most wanted persons, especially those who pose threats to peace and order in our country,” he added.

Police said Pascual was brought to the office of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group-Mandaue City Field Unit for proper documentation and disposition. – Christine Annie Asistio, INQUIRER.net intern
