PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte is mulling to convert the alleged biggest shabu laboratory at the foothill of Mt. Arayat in Pampanga into a rehabilitation center for drug dependents.
At the sideline of his inspection in the province, Duterte ordered the seizure of the property, which was allegedly owned by a certain Sandy Chua.
He, however, did not implicate Chua in the alleged drug operation.
The chief executive expressed dismay that drug lords had been able to operate in the province.
"It's just too bad we have not met them (drug syndicates operating) here. It used to be a land owned by somebody then subsequently sold to a certain Mr. Chua when security forces arrived," Duterte said.
