Rama, other officials in PH named 'drug protectors'

CEBU (Updated) -- President Rodrigo Duterte named former Cebu City Mayor Mike Rama as one of the drug protectors during his speech at the Naval Forces Eastern Mindanao (NFEM) Multi-Purpose Covered Court in Camp Panacan, Davao.

In his Facebook post around 4 a.m., Rama said "the news that my name was mentioned by President Duterte is saddening."

"Even how untrue this accusation is, should this be the way and the necessary step to win the war against drugs, I will fully cooperate with the authorities to immediately clear my name and we trust that we will be given the opportunity to present our side and prove our innocence. My unwavering support for President Duterte's campaign will continue. My family and I have always been law-abiding citizens and have been very clear about our stand against drugs. May justice prevail and the truth set us free. God bless Cebu and God bless the Philippines," he added.

Also named was former Cebu Intelligence Branch chief Superintendent Romeo Santander, among other police officials in the country.

Also included in the list read by Duterte was Daanbantayan, Cebu Mayor Vicente Loot, who earlier denied involvement in the illegal drug trade.

Loot retired from the Philippine National Police last July 2015 after 37 years of service, and was elected mayor of Daanbantayan last May 9 by a margin of seven votes.

"These names have been validated and re-validated." Duterte said.

"If there is a rule, a law, either you enforce it or none at all. If di ko basahin dahil kaibigan ko kayo, ang pinakamabuti kong magawa is mag resign," he added.

After naming some of the officials, Duterte said, "All policemen, PNP personnel assigned as security guards, security personnel ng mayor I have mentioned, you are hereby relieved of your duty and immediately report to your mother unit. Tatanggalin ko na ang operational authority over them."

He also ordered the cancellation of any and all of their firearms licenses and permits effective Sunday, August 7.

He said that he could be wrong, but stressed that he is ready to face the consequences. He said he has to tell the public about what is happening in the country according to his mandate.

"I take full responsibility. Any mistake of the military and police, ako yung responsable. I ordered them to do the listing," Duterte said, reiterating that he is putting at stake his honor, life and even the presidency.

"Hindi ko kayo kalaban. Wala kayong atraso sa akin, pero galit na ako ngayon," he added.

Duterte ordered the executive officials he named to report directly to him, while those police officials should report to Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa, and the justices to the Supreme Court within 24 hours.

"If you will not report within 24 hours, I will order the entire police and military to hunt you," said Duterte.

He mentioned about 100 names of politicians, policemen, soldiers and judges in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao as drug protectors. He said he will name next the prosecutors allegedly involved.

"The other names are ongoing re-validation," he said.

Duterte said there are currently 600,000 drugs users and pushers who surrendered.

"Bakit tayo umaabot sa ganitong magnitude? Because the government personnel were into drugs," the President said.

He also told police and military personnel in his list that they are "administratively dead" and that they must report to their mother units within 24 hours.

Former mayor Rama underwent a drug test in October last year and results yielded negative. In 2014, Rama refused to undergo a surprise drug test at City Hall after he was accused of using illegal drugs. (Sunnex)
