On the appointment of Mr. Gilbert de la Cruz Cruz


We confirm that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has signed the appointment of Mr. Gilbert de la Cruz Cruz as Permanent Member of the Dangerous Drugs Board on November 24, 2020.

The fight against illegal drugs is the centerpiece program of the Duterte Aministration. We therefore consider the appointment of Mr. Cruz as timely and relevant with his previous work at the Philippine National Police.

We wish Mr. Cruz good luck in his new assignment.
