President Rodrigo Duterte is set to submit to the National Security Council the validated list of government officials allegedly involved in illegal drugs.

According to the president, he will give the Senate and Congress a copy of his final narco list before the end of November.

President Duterte estimates that the list contains 5, 000 up to 10,000 names of narco politicians, a threat to public’s security.

Included in the list are barangay officials, mayor, governor, members of the judiciary and prosecutors.

Presidential Chief Legal Counsel Savador Panelo expressed that the president’s next step could be the suspension of the privilege of Writ of Habeas Corpus.

Pres. Duterte earlier announced that he might be forced to suspend the Writ of Habeas Corpus if lawlessness will continue in Mindanao.
