The House of Representatives has commended ABS-CBN primetime series “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” for its efforts to promote crime awareness and prevention among viewers and endorsed Coco Martin as “Celebrity Advocate for a Drug-Free Philippines.”
Rep. Ace Barbers, Chairman of House Committee on Dangerous Drugs, recently filed House Resolution No. 358 last September 14 commending the producers, cast, and crew of “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” for courageously presenting relevant and controversial issues like corruption, medical malpractice, narco politics, ninja cops, sex trade, manufacture of dangerous drugs, drug couriers, and the sale of party drugs.
“‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano’ exposes the network of drug syndicates including the scalawags in uniform while also revealing the struggles of the white knights of law enforcement units,” said Barbers in the House resolution.
According to Rep. Barbers, the show tackles issues like homicide, illegal recruitment, extortion, robbery, kidnapping, carnapping, cybercrime, guns for hire, riding in tandem, fraud, child abuse, human trafficking, terrorism, and drug trafficking.
