MANILA, Philippines – Vice President Leni Robredo on Monday assured the public that no classified information on the government’s campaign against illegal drugs will be disclosed.
Robredo gave the assurance in response to President Rodrigo Duterte’s warning, relayed by Malacañang on Sunday, to fire the vice president as co-chairperson of the inter-agency committee on anti-illegal drugs if she divulges sensitive information that may jeopardize the government’s campaign and the national security.
The Palace issued the warning following Robredo’s request to access obtain baseline data, including the number of high-value targets, on the anti-drug campaign, and her recent meetings with representatives from the United Nations and the United States for possible aid that they may extend to fight the Philippines’ drug problem.
“Iyong assurance naman, lahat ng sensitive information hindi idi-disclose,” Robredo told reporters in the Senate where she attends the plenary deliberations on the proposed budget of the Office of the Vice President for 2020.
Robredo accepted Duterte’s appointment to co-lead the government’s war on drugs last Nov. 6.
She said her primary consideration in accepting the task was to promote bloodless campaign against illegal drugs, as well as other proposals to improve the government’s war on drugs. – RRD (with details from Correspondent Vincent Arboleda)
