Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Eduardo M. Año has vowed to facilitate a relentless war against illegal drugs, corruption, communist insurgency, and violent extremism.
DILG OIC Año is a former Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief-of-Staff.
“Under my watch, the DILG will relentlessly and resolutely wage a campaign to rid the country of illegal drugs, criminality, and corruption. The threats of communism and violent extremism will also be met head-on,” Año said as quoted in a release made by DILG.
“I will strongly uphold our primary mandate to ‘promote peace and order, ensure public safety and further strengthen local government capability aimed towards the effective delivery of basic services to the citizenry,” he added.
He will be strengthening the Peace and Order Councils (POCs), Anti-Drug Abuse Councils (ADAC), and People’s Law Enforcement Board (PLEB).
He also vowed to cleanse local governments and the Philippine National Police.
“As for local and police officials, and all engaged in crime groups, you will be held accountable and will be dealt with uncompromisingly for violating our laws,” he said.
