The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) named three brutal drug syndicates that operate in the Philippines.
PDEA Director General Aaron Aquino syndicates from Macau, China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan are operating here in the Philippines.
The Bamboo Gang is from Taiwan, the 14K from Macau and Hong Kong and the Sun Yi Un from Beijing. All are being led by Chinese drug syndicates.
“For example, ‘yung Bamboo gang, these are Taiwan-based. Yung 14k is Macau and Hong Kong-based….Tatlo yan, ‘yung most powerful drug syndicates. ‘Yung isa ‘yung…Sun Yi Un that is Beijing-based. So itong tatlong ito ang the most powerful Chinese drug syndicates nago-operate sa ating country. Most of them are Chinese nationals,” said Aquino as quoted by GMA News.
Aquino said these syndicates are manufacturing these drugs in the sea and will transport them to the Philippines.
President Rodrigo Duterte said the Bamboo Triad is the one to be blamed in the proliferation of drugs in the country and not the Chinese government.
Gary Song-Huann Lin of the Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) said its government is willing to “strengthen the anti-drug cooperation with the Philippines” and ordered an investigation about the news that drugs from Taiwan.
“cTaiwan is not a source of drugs in the Philippines. Taiwan (does) not export drugs to this country, even if President Duterte has said that, the drugs are cooked in high seas,” Lin said.
