MANILA, Aug. 9 — While still to review President Rodrigo Duterte’s latest narco-list, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) assured the public that sanctions will be meted out to military personnel found in cahoots with the illegal drugs syndicates.

But prior that, a detailed investigation will be conducted against these individuals found in the Chief Executive’s narco-list, said AFP public affairs office chief Col. Edgard Arevalo on Wednesday.

If found guilty, these personnel will be subjected to summary dismissal proceedings after which they will be charged and prosecuted by authorities.

“We will not allow the AFP to be tainted by personnel involved in the illegal drugs trade,” Arevalo said in Filipino.
