DAGUPAN CITY- Acting Provincial Director Ronald Oliver Lee of Pangasinan Provincial Police Office (PPPO) said  the war on illegal drugs has no deadline and may continue until President Rodrigo Duterte finishes his term in 2022.5 (2)FORUM. Police Senior Supt.Ronald Lee (3rd from right), acting Pangasinan police director, leads other guests during the regular forum of the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas(KBP) Pangasinan chapter last March 9 at the Philippine Information Agency(PIA) office in Dagupan City.CESAR RAMIREZ

This he said before a group of media men during the KBP Forum-Pangasinan Chapter held at Philippine Information Agency-Provincial Office at the People’s Astrodome here last March 9.
” If  Operation Tokhang was not suspended, we would (finish) it in one year only. We have been able to accomplish what has been expected from us. However, with the relaunching of the Operation Tokhang, President Duterte said he would like to see the Philippines clean from illegal drugs until his term ends,” Lee said.
Lee also said Pangasinan had no shabu laboratories and only a small amount of marijuana has been confiscated in the province.
” Supplies of illegal drugs come as far as Cavite and Manila. On marijuana, we have confiscated only 500 grams or more coming from the 4th District and 6th District. Apparently, the supplies came from our neighboring provinces,” he said.

During the said forum, Lee was joined by Police Chief Inspector Norman Florentino , Acting Chief of Provincial Police Community Relations and Police Chief Inspector Jackie Candelario, Deputy Provincial Director for Operations and OIC-Chief of Police of Urdaneta City.
Asked whether there are already priests who are joining them on Operation Tokhang, Florentino said that they are still coordinating with the dioceses to enlist their participation.
” They will not be involved in operations but to give spiritual advice to the surrenderers,” Florentino said.
Lee added that priests, pastors and ministers could be used to persuade drug users and pushers to surrender because of their skills in communications.
Meanwhile, Candelaro said  in Urdaneta City, there are surrenderers who went back to their illegal activities and these are in Poblacion and San Vicente villages.
” We have been monitoring the activities of the surrenderers in every barangay,” he said.
