CHR cautions PDEA against plan to name suspected barangay ‘narcopols’

The Commission on Human Rights (CHR) has cautioned the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) against its plan to publicly name barangay officials allegedly involved in the narcotics trade.

Carla Abellana calls out barangay over revised ‘Oplan Doghang’ poster: ‘Pet abandonment is illegal’
