10 has tested positive of drugs out of the 2,000 Philippine Coast Guard personnel who underwent surprise drug test done as of late.
"I have yet to check to if there was an officer among the 10, but majority of them are enlisted personnel," said PCG representative Commander Armand Balilo, the said personnels are doled out at the PCG headquarters in Manila and Cavite region.
He said a corroborative test will in any case be directed to confirm the presence of drugs in fluid examples from the 10 PCG staff.
"If they again tested positive for drugs during confirmatory test, they will undergo summary dismissal proceedings. But we will observe due process," Balilo added.
"We’re also trying to find out if (their drug use) is work-related, if they’re on board the ship, if they’re conducting patrol operations," he said.
"I still have no information if the 10 personnel were tested positive for shabu or marijuana; I have yet to confirm [this]," he said.
