Robredo to release drug war report

Vice President Leni Robredo is set to release her drug war findings she was able to put together during her recent 19-day stint as anti-drug czar.

Robredo said her report does not mean to scare; she said that on the contrary it is meant to help in solving the gaps in the government’s drug war.

“Inaantay natin matapos ang SEA Games, pero nasa Basilan at Marawi kasi ako, so sa Monday mangyayari. Walang dapat matakot. Nakakatawa nga na iyong anticipation rito ay nananakot ako. Iyong sa atin lang, rekomendasyon; para ipakita na hindi ko sinayang iyong 18 days na binigay sa atin,” Robredo told reporters on Tuesday.

She added that she’s offering solutions in addressing the gaps.

“Hindi ito pananakot kasi iyong pananakot, para lang ito sa may mga kasalanan. Ang hinahanap natin solusyon, hindi problema,” Robredo added.

Robredo was appointed co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) last month.

The President however fired her after more than two weeks over her supposed “missteps” in executing her post.

Robredo said that she did her best in doing her job as anti-drug czar, even submitting reports to Malacañang but was ignored.
