AKLAN – Tinaguriang mga ‘living dead’ ang mga drug addicts na sumuko sa Oplan Tokhang ng Philippine National Police (PNP).
Ito ang tinuran ni Atty. Salvador Panelo, chief legal counsel ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte.
Ayon kay Duterte, importante na dumaan ang mga ito sa komprehensibong rehabilitation program kung nais pa nilang mamuhay ng matiwasay.
“Many of those who surrendered need to undergo intensive drug rehabilitation program. In psychology, it tells us that there is a big possibility that they will return as drug addicts again,” ani Panelo matapos ang induction ng Aklan Press Club officers.
Aabot sa 65,000 ang bilang ng mga drug addicts na sumuko sa awtoridad sa buong bansa.
“When they come back, they would steal again, robbed or become a menace in the society. That’s why I consider them as the living dead,” dagdag ni Panelo. “This is the reason why the government is eyeing the possibility of martial law against drug addicts. For now, the plan for martial law is not needed since drug addicts now are killing each other.” (Jun N. Aguirre)
