Under fire for alleged extra-judicial killings of drug suspects, the Philippine National Police (PNP) is not about to relent on their focused campaign against illegal drugs all around the country. Instead of being held back by criticisms from various human rights advocate groups here and abroad, the PNP has stepped up the ante to meet the goal of their Commander-in-chief to suppress the illegal drugs problem of the country.
President Duterte claimed there are now four million drug addicts in the Philippines. By extrapolation, the President cited these figures were based on the estimate of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) that there were at least 3.7 million Filipinos who were addicted to shabu and other narcotic substances.
