“So to answer you, [to make it clear, the two are from]… Luzon!” he said in a media briefing on Wednesday.
Another one is reportedly from Mindanao.

In the same briefing, Fariñas said that upon House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez’s instructions, he is “meeting with those who prepared the list to see and, of course, there must be due process. It’s difficult if a person’s name is there, how did they come up with that?”
He added that he will talk to all three lawmakers.

“So the three, as much that the Speaker would want to reveal their names, the Speaker consulted with me to take a look first…it’s difficult to drop names only to find out that it is not fully validated,” Fariñas said.
He said he has talked to one of the three lawmakers.

“Of course he was surprised, he asked me ‘how was I included there?’ So we are backtracking. I am finding out, how was that list prepared?…So, but of course, this came from the President, there is the weight of the list coming from the President. Although it has been shown in the past, that there was a mistake. So, that is what we are doing now,” Fariñas added.

The Duterte list of officials, either directly involve or protectors of drug syndicates, include those from the barangays (villages), mayors, governors and congressmen. The President has met with city and municipal mayors, as well as governors in the regions regarding his “narco-list” and warned those who are on the list of dire consequences.

  1. Drug manufacturer can not be called drug lord… no matter what, they were stay as manufacturer. (also violates the law subject to the type of prohibited substance) The traders are the drug lords. (big, that is why called trade, the act or process of buying) the word “Lord” is pertaining to huge volume business & no one is above them. And when drug is manufactured it can not be in the market until this traders place an order. So how the manufacturer can be called be a drug lord? ( they are still producer cum manufacturer) The one who sell drugs in a small scale called “pusher”.

    This are the ones mostly being killed! Being killed by their groups (drug lords) to avoid to be pointed & reveal everything before they will be caught by the authority.

    So please don’t teach the President…

    • THESE are the ones mostly being killed! Being killed by their groups (drug lords) to………..

    • According to the FBI Drug Lords manufactures and sells drugs to the dealers (trader or pushers). If DU30 cannot understand between the two, he’ll never defeat them.

  2. This just proves that what ever dudirty says is unreliable like the drug list that he always publicly wags when he mumbly rants in his speeches.

  3. Here we go again Mr. DU30, another alleged drug trader, why not go out and catch the drug lords? Is it because you don’t know the difference between a trader and a drug lord? A drug trader (dealer) buys and sells drugs, a drug lord manufactures drugs. Which one can’t you understand? We need to see drug lords dead, not small dealers.

    You kill the drug lord, you destroy the one that supplies the drugs to the drug trader (dealer). You kill the drug trader (dealer) the drug lord will just have to find another dealer to deal his drugs, which he will not have a hardtime getting.
