SAN PEDRO CITY, Laguna — An incumbent mayor and a former mayor from the Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) region who were on the list of politicians allegedly involved in illegal drug trafficking went to the Philippine National Police headquarters in Camp Crame early Monday to clear their names.

Vicente Amante, the former mayor of San Pablo City in Laguna province, and Ryan Dolor, the incumbent mayor of Bauan town in Batangas province, sought Director General Ronald dela Rosa, PNP chief, a day after President Duterte named local officials, judges and policemen supposedly involved in the illegal drug trade.
