>> Friday, June 16, 2017

BAGUIO CITY –The Baguio City Council has given a favorable review on a barangay ordinance that allows giving of reward money to individuals who give information for prosecution of any person violating the anti illegal drugs act of 2002.
The city council approved Ordinance No. 2 Series of 2017 of Barangay Holy Ghost Proper titled “An ordinance giving monetary reward to any person who gives information leading to the prosecution of any person for violating certain acts enumerated in Republic Act No. 9165 known as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002."
The village ordinance said: “The war against drugs is a fight not only devolved to law enforcement officers but to every member of the community. This fight will never be won if we don’t recognize our duty as law abiding citizens to report perpetrators of illegal drug activities.
We cannot eradicate this drug menace if we cannot rally every member of the community to be aware and cooperate with the anti drug campaign.”
The barangay approved the amount of P10,000 to be included in the annual budget allocation for the Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Council fund.
P2,000 will be given as reward money to any informer who gives information leading to the arrest and prosecution of any person violating the anti-drug law.

 The City Director of the Baguio City Police Office will issue a certification that the informer gave information, which will be the basis for the release of the reward money. The certification and identity of the person will be treated with utmost confidentiality.  -- Liza T. Agoot / PNA
