The presumptive President of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte  asked the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) a list of the Drug Personalities in Western Visayas.


PDEA, as the lead government agency in combating illegal drugs, is mandated to “arrest and apprehend as well as search all violators and seize or confiscate the effects or proceeds of the crimes as provided by law; take charge and have custody of all dangerous drugs and/or controlled precursors and essential chemicals seized, confiscated or surrendered to any national, provincial or local law enforcement agency,” among others.
Following news that Duterte’s camp asked for the list of individuals who are involved in the sale and distribution of illegal drugs, it has been reported that known big-time drug lords have begun fleeing the country.
A source who requested anonymity because he is not authorized to issue a statement told The Philippine Star that “foreign drug lords operating in the country and those already in the order of battle of various law-enforcement agencies have packed up and fled to South America or Mexico to relocate their illegal operation.”
The same source told The STAR that known big-time drug lords have begun fleeing the country before Duterte assumes the presidency next month.

“We have received reports that foreign drug lords operating in the country and those already in the order of battle of various law-enforcement agencies have packed up and fled to South America or Mexico to relocate their illegal operation,” he said.
