    Vice President Leni Robredo on the Proposal to Reinstate the Philippine Constabulary

    2 February 2017

    In thinking of reinstating the Philippine Constabulary, we must look at why it was removed in the first place. Historically, it was an institution that cultivated and supported abuse of power.

    Unfortunately, we can see this pattern forming in the Philippine National Police. We hope that before coming to a decision, the current problems in the PNP are solved and those responsible for abuse are held accountable, rather than using the reinstatement of the PC as a bandaid solution.

    Moreover, is reinstating the PC truly the solution to the problem of the proliferation of illegal drugs?

    It has been six months yet all the killings—amounting to 7,000—have been deterrents rather than decisive actions against drug producers and drug dealers.

    We believe that it is high time we rethink the strategy on fighting the war on drugs, for we are past the six-month deadline President Duterte set for himself, yet we have not seen any true accomplishments, and shifting the strategy to reinstating historically abusive police force is, to us, the furthest from a step forward.
