Bongbong Marcos believes that there is no quick fix to the country’s drug problems. He supports the death penalty for illegal drug trade convicted criminals. Solving the country’s drug problem has become complex. It should be regarded, not only as a police problem but as a problem of society as well. President Rodrigo Duterte announces that the Oplan Tokhang is suspended. This is due to the death of Korean businessman Jee Ick Joo that implicates three police officers.

Clean-up Drive within the Police Force
The president earlier refuses to accept PNP Chief Bato’s resignation after his own men put him into humiliation. Oplan Tokhang turns into Tokhang for Ranson. This is where the involved police officers demand ransom money from the family using the drug intervention process of the President. Duterte orders Bato to clean-up the police force first and ceases the drug bust operation until further notice.
Takes Time to Solve the Country’s Drug Problems
Bongbong Marcos explains that all sectors of society must come together. This starts with the parents. Focus efforts on the values imparted to the children and strengthening the family. The solution lies in a strong family that the child can depend on, Marcos added. Meanwhile, Duterte based his earlier deadlines on Davao’s drug problems. He did not realize until he becomes president that he leads a narco-country.

Tokhang for Ransom Case
A group of Philippine National Police officers kidnaps Jee from his home in Angeles City and then brought him to Camp Crame. He was brutally strangled to death by SPO3 Ricky Sta. Isabel, in a case of “Tokhang-for-Ransom,” as per evidence presented at a Senate hearing. Sta. Isabel denies the accusation. He claims that he is set up by his unit leader, Supt. Rafael Dumlao III, of the PNP’s Anti-Illegal Drugs Group. Dumlao is now under restrictive custody after Duterte puts a 5 million Pesos reward on his head and announced in a press conference. 20 minutes later, Bato received a phone call that he already presented himself in their headquarters.
Death Penalty for Oplan Tokhang and Tokhang for Ransom
House senior deputy minority leader and Buhay Rep. Lito Atienza maintains that death penalty must be the punishment of heinous crimes as called by the president for serious drug offenders. Corrupt police officers engaged in all sorts of criminal activities must be the first ones to get executed or else the abusive men in authority will continue their wrong doings, Atienza said.
