Fact-Checking The Drug Czar: Most Illegal Drugs Come From China — Duterte Said It First

Vice President Leni Robredo, the newly-designated Drug Czar has been in office for just days, yet she has already made several claims which she attributes to herself.

In her latest public statement, she proudly announced what she just found out: most illegal drugs in the Philippines come from China.  What a stunning discovery, right?

Wrong.

Since the beginning of Rodrigo Duterte’s term as President, he had always acknowledged that China was the biggest source of illegal drugs in the country.

For Robredo, her claim might as well be called a drug bust. Or Duterte could sue her for plagiarism. She was using recycled information and making it her own.
