4 big-time drug traffickers killed in Zambales sting, P3.4B shabu seized

MANILA, Philippines—Four Chinese drug traffickers were killed in an anti-illegal drug operations in Zambales, the Philippine National Police (PNP) reported.

On Tuesday (September 7), the government’s intelligence and anti-narcotics operatives led by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) seized some P3.4 billion worth of methamphetamine in Candelaria, Zambales.

The PNP said the four drug traffickers engaged the government operatives in a gun battle in a failed attempt to escape.

The Chinese nationals were identified as Gao Manzhu, 49; Hong Jianshe, 58; Eddie Tan, 60; all from Fujian, China; and, Xu Youha,50, from Quezon City. Seized from them were 500 kilograms of shabu with an estimated standard price of P3.4 billion. The confiscated shabu was the biggest drug haul for this year so far.

On Tuesday, government anti-narcotics operatives were able to negotiate for the purchase of a kilo of shabu from the group of Xu which resulted in the operation that eventually led to his death and of his three other companions.

PNP Chief Police General Guillermo Eleazar said the individuals were known distributors of illegal drugs in Luzon, particularly in Metro Manila, Central Luzon and Region 4.

Xu, alias Taba, was tagged as one of the key players of illegal drugs activities in the country and according to PDEA Deputy Director General for Operations Gregorio Pimentel, he was last monitored talking to a contact abroad.

Meanwhile, a hot pursuit operation has been set up to capture more members of the syndicate. Eleazar said, he had already deployed helicopters and speedboats of the PNP to assist in the conduct of pursuit operation against the vessel which transported the confiscated illegal drugs to the coastal waters of Zambales.

“This operation was a result of the whole-of-government approach in our campaign against illegal drugs. Our coordination and cooperation with other government agencies, particularly with the PDEA, is now stronger than before so we are confident that this will be our strong point in our successful campaign to put an end to the threats of illegal drugs in the country,” he said.

Robie de Guzman   •   August 13, 2021


MANILA, Philippines – The Department of National Defense (DND) on Friday refuted earlier reports that a Chinese vessel has been spotted near the disputed Scarborough Shoal (also called Bajo de Masinloc) in the West Philippine Sea.

In a statement, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said the alleged Chinese research ship did not pass through nor enter the country’s area of responsibility.

“Contrary to some published reports regarding the Chinese Research Vessel Hai Da Hao, the AFP Northern Luzon Command has reported that the said vessel has not been spotted near Bajo de Masinloc as alleged,” he said.

“Based on the verification of the one-year historical track of CRV Hai Da Hao, the vessel did not pass through nor did it enter the area of responsibility of Naval Forces Northern Luzon,” he added.

Lorenzana noted that the said ship is currently monitored at 30 nautical miles south of Huidong Xian, Huizhou Shi in China.

The DND chief issued the statement following claims on social media about the alleged presence of a Chinese research ship near the shoal in Zambales.

The report prompted the department to conduct verification on the matter.

Chinese and other foreign vessels have previously been spotted in contested areas in the West Philippine Sea.

The Philippine government has repeatedly filed diplomatic protests on the presence of Chinese ships in Philippine waters.

MANILA, Philippines—The Light Rail Transit 2 (LRT-2) East Extension will begin operations on July 6, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) announced Thursday  (July 1) at the inauguration of the project.

The transportation department, in a statement, said commuters will now experience a swifter, comfortable and convenient train ride experience, as the travel time from and to Recto, Manila and Antipolo, Rizal will just be 40 minutes from the current three hours via land transport.

The LRT-2 Extension also aims to reduce traffic along Marcos Highway, especially in Marikina, Pasig and Antipolo.

Trains on the line running from Recto Station in Manila to the Antipolo Station have also been increased to eight from the previous five trains that run from Recto Station to the Santolan Station.

The rail line can now accommodate an additional 80,000 passengers daily, further increasing the rail line’s average daily passenger capacity from 240,000 to 320,000 passengers.

Moreover, at least 1,800 jobs were also generated during the construction of the LRT-2 East Extension Project. The DOTr also projects that 170 rail personnel will be employed to work at the two new stations. AAC
