PDEA chief warns public of fake anti-drug group

Cagayan de Oro City (4 February) -- The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), particularly in region 10, would like to warn the public on the existence of unscrupulous personalities and groups who posed as members of anti-drug groups.

Director Gilberto B. Abanto, Jr. of PDEA in region 10 said that there are groups or individuals who pretend as members of anti-drug groups asking protection money.

He added that there are also proliferations of identification (ID) cards with the name of the agency in the possession of these individuals who solicit funds from unsuspecting members of the community.

Abanto clarified that PDEA in the region never issued any ID cards or documents to any individual or civilians. If there are people using the name of PDEA, they are directly violating DDB Board Resolution No. 34, Series of 2006, which stipulates guidelines governing the accreditation of various organizations involved in drug abuse prevention programs, because they are not duly accredited by the DDB.

Moreover, Section VI, sub-paragraph (4) of the Resolution states that "Accreditation is not an authorization to solicit funds."

Thus, Abanto encourages the public to report or coordinate directly with PDEA 10, through the following hotline numbers: 09088924770; 09228949115 and (088) 8572279 for any clarification and verification regarding this matter. (PDEA-10) [top]
