Pres. Duterte has celebrity drug watch list, says Police chief

MANILA — Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Dir. Gen. Ronald dela Rosa confirmed Monday that President Rodrigo Duterte has a celebrity drug watch list.

Dela Rosa however said that there is still no “Oplan Tokhang” for the celebrities.

The PNP chief made the confirmation regarding reports that show business personalities are involved in illegal drugs.

Dela Rosa said that the President’s celebrity drug watch list is separate from the 30 names of celebrities included in the list of the National Capital Regional Police Office (NCRPO) that he submitted to Malacañang.

President Duterte has his own list of celebrities which he may or may not divulge to the public, he said.

Under Oplan Tokhang or operation plan knock/request, the PNP visits the residence of a drug personality and asks him/her to abandon the illegal activity, surrender or undergo rehabilitation.
