President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo gave the order to track down suspects in the shabu smuggling incident in Subic Bay last year.
Dangerous Drugs Board Chair Vicente Sotto III said the President organized the inter-agency “Task Force Double AA” to intensify the manhunt for Anton Ang and five co-horts. He said the task force will be doing a regional and international coordination in its search for Ang and company.
The task force consists of Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, Philippine National Police Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Task Force, Office of the Solicitor General, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, Presidential Anti-Smuggling Group, National Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Immigration.
Sotto added they will get into a deep research for new ways of shabu detection after the President expressed her desire to equip the country’s entry points with better detection system for the illegal drugs. (PIA-MMIO)
