PDEA sets to release new narco-list

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency is set to reveal a new verified list of narco-politicians in the next two weeks.

According to PDEA Dir. Aaron Aquino, the narco-list released last April was once again validated by four agencies.

In a press conference, Aquino revealed that 93 politicians, mostly mayors, vice mayors, and congressmen, are included in the new narco-list.

The PDEA chief added that some of the suspected narco-politicians are aware of their inclusion in the said list and are already planning to clear their names.

The officials mentioned in the new narco-list came from the CALABARZON region, Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, and Northern Mindanao.

207 politicians were named in the previous narco-list publicized before the village and youth council elections.
