6 village workers positive of drugs

SIX village personnel working for two barangays in Talisay City were found positive of illegal drug use during a surprise drug test a week ago.

If the confirmatory tests prove them again, the employees found positive of illegal drug use will be encouraged to undergo the City’s After Care program or they couldn’t be reinstated to their jobs.

Dr. Rey Cesar Bautista, head of the City’s After Care Program, said of the six village personnel, five were from Barangay San Isidro and one from Barangay Dumlog.

Marietta Bucao, Barangay San Isidro chief, said that of the six village personnel found positive of illegal drug use, five of them were garbage collectors and a tanod.

The village has employed more than 80 personnel.

As of yesterday, the six personnel have been relieved of their posts.

While only one personnel in his barangay was found positive of illegal drugs, Dumlog Village Chief Nelson Abellana said he and five tanods failed to undergo the surprise drug test.

But Abellana said he failed to attend the drug test because he had an appointment with the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) due to discrepancies in his NBI clearance. (JKV)
