0 973

Another barangay in Navotas has received a drug-cleared certification from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), in a testament to the city government’s intensified campaaign against illegal drugs.

Barangay captain Carlito De Guzman Sr. of Barangay Tanza I received the certification from Mayor Toby Tiangco and his brother, Congressman John Rey Tiangco, earlier this month.

Barangay Tanza I’s achievement brings to five the number of barangays which have been declared as drug-cleared by PDEA.

The other drug-cleared barangays are Navotas East, North Bay Boulevard South Dagat-dagatan, San Rafael Village and Tanza II.

A barangay is declared drug-cleared if it is free of illegal drug supplies, drug dens, drug pushers and users, and drug laboratories at the time PDEA signs the certification.

Toby said the city government’s goal is for Navotas’ 18 barangays to be declared free of illegal drugs.

“Hindi natin kukunsintihin ang anumang maling gawain. Nasa inyo ang aming 100 percent na suporta,” he said.
