We would like to express concern over Manila Times’ article published on September 6 with the headline, “Robredo Belittles Duterte Drug War.”
The headline is misleading and contrary to what it says, Vice President Leni Robredo does not “belittle” the administration’s war against illegal drugs.
VP Leni recognizes the gravity of the problem and firmly supports the administration’s war against illegal drugs. She even initiated the meeting with the Department of Interior and Local Government and other partner agencies precisely because she wants the OVP to play an active role in the rehabilitation and reintegration efforts of the government.
We urge our colleagues from the media to be more circumspect and make headlines more accurate and faithful to the facts.
Thank you for your kind understanding.
