A councilor of the City of Manila wrote a letter to the Philippine National Police to arrest his own children for alleged involvement in illegal drugs.
In the letter, Manila 1st District Councilor Jesus “Taga” Fajardo said he received reports of the presence of a drug den near his house.
Fajardo also said his children were involved.
“Ako si Konsehal Jesus ‘TAGA’ Fajardo, nakatanggap at nakarinig ng mga bali-balita na kung saan ang aking gilid na tahanan ay ginagawang ‘drug den’ na kung saan ang mga involved diumano ay ang aking mga anak,” Fajardo wrote in the letter dated May 6, 2020.
“Ako po mismo ang may gustong ipahuli ang mga yan. Hindi ko po kinukunsinti ang mga ganyang gawain. Ni-minsan sa aking panunungkulan bilang punong barangay at konsehal ay hindi nabilang sa ganyang gawaing ilegal.”
Fajardo gave his consent, through the said letter, for policemen to enter and arrest the persons in the reported “drug den.”
