Senator Panfilo Lacson said he will meet with Vice President Leni Robredo to discuss about the anti-illegal drug campaign.
Lacson previously said he is willing to share whatever modest law enforcement experience he gained in his previous life.
He announced they are currently fixing the schedule of the meeting.
“We are fixing our schedule to sit down. I am grateful and humbled by her gesture. More than that, it shows her sincerity and seriousness in tackling her new task,” he said.
Robredo accepted the offer to become the drug czar on Wednesday (November 6) after President Rodrigo Duterte designated her as co-chairperson of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) in a memorandum signed on October 31, days after Robredo stated in an interview that the administration’s drug war has been ineffective.—AAC (with reports from Nel Maribojoc)
