Six more Malabon barangays declared ‘drug-cleared’
Six more barangays in Malabon City have been declared as “drug-cleared,” an official of the city said.
Malabon chief public information officer Bong Padua on Tuesday said the recognition of six more barangays added to the nine already “drug-cleared” barangays.
This means that 15 out of the 21 barangays in the city are already cleared of illegal drugs.
The regional oversight committee, composed of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, the Philippine National Police, the Department of Health, and the Department of the Interior and Local Governments, awarded the “drug-cleared” status to barangays Acacia, Bayan-bayanan, Catmon, Maysilo, Santulan, and Tugatog.
Barangays Concepcion, Flores, Panghulo, Baritan, Dampalit, Ibaba, Niugan, San Agustin and Muzon were the nine other barangays that have already received the award.
Malabon police chief Col. Jessie Tamayao said that for a barangay to be declared as “drug-cleared,” all of its identified and surrendered drug personalities would already have been arrested, monitored, or accounted for wellness recovery program.
