QC Mayor Herbert Bautista a Drug Lord Protector?
After Quezon City Police relieved 88 members of its anti-drug enforcement unit on Wednesday, the Internet is shocked by an unverified report, that mayor Herbert Bautista is allegedly included in the President Duterte’s lists of drug protectors.
Two news blog websites posted the same article entitled “Mayor Herbert Bautista Number 1 in Lists of Drug Lord Protectors”. The news posted on pinoyworld.net and newstrendph.com – two websites having questionable contents.
A quick search on Google News gives no result from mainstream media with similar information.
It is a big blow for Bautista to have his name lambasted by people who believed on such information online.
Although Quezon City if on top of the lists when it comes to drug-related cases, especially when some of it’s anti-drug enforcement agents are involved, it is not fair to give a quick assumption that the sitting mayor is involved.
Whether the news is true or false, let’s wait for the legit information from main stream media like ABS-CBN, GMA, Inquirer, and others. /Lenny De Jesus/
