Drug war is fake....

Int’l drug crime boss had heyday in Philippines, says book
By: Tony S. Bergonia - @inquirerdotnet INQUIRER.net / 05:12 PM June 20, 2019


MANILA, Philippines – An international drug kingpin now awaiting sentencing in the United States had operated his crime network unmolested from his base in the Philippines by bribing high officials that included those from the national government and police, according to a new book that detailed the crime empire built by Paul Calder-Le Roux, a South African information technology (IT) genius who turned his internet drug distribution network into one of the world’s biggest underworld organization.

According to the book “The Mastermind” written by award-winning journalist Evan Ratfliff, Le Roux used the Philippines as his base of operations starting in 2007 because of the ease with which the crime boss could bribe his way through trouble.

Le Roux, according to the book, bought a house in the posh Dasmarinas Village in Makati City, leased space on the 14th floor of a banking building also in Makati and leased the penthouse of a high-end condominium in Salcedo Village also in Makati City.

These were from where Le Roux gave out instructions to ship drugs into the Philippines and out for distribution to other countries, the book said.

These were also from where Le Roux, a Zimbabwean by birth, directed the smuggling of high-powered firearms, like antiaircraft guns and sniper rifles, which the crime boss used for security and to assassinate what he considered to be snitches in his organization or those he had accused of stealing his money, like Filipino real estate broker Catherine Lee in 2012.

Lee’s body had been found in Taytay, Rizal province and her murder had been connected to Le Roux. Two Americans involved in her killings, flown to Manila by Le Roux just to kill Lee, had been found guilty and sentenced to jail by a US court.


Her sin against Le Roux was to hand P50 million of the crime boss’ money, meant to buy land in Batangas province, to another real estate agent who took off with the money. Though not identified, the second real estate agent was believed to have been killed, too, on orders of Le Roux.

At the penthouse in Salcedo, a hitman called to a meeting by Le Roux was quoted as seeing a wall of servers in the crime boss’ inner office, showing how the IT genius had transformed the place into one of the centers of his IT-driven criminal organization that had branched out to Israel, Brazil, Papua New Guinea, the United States, Australia and several other countries, according to The Mastermind.

The book said that on the 14th floor of the banking building on Ayala Avenue, the main artery of the Philippines’ financial center, Le Roux operated a call center that took orders for prescription drugs from customers in the United States which were sold highly addictive pain killers illegally through the internet.

It was where Le Roux’s internet-based drug distribution company in the United States, called RX Limited, located its main call center.

Why Le Roux chose the Philippines as his base of operations, according to the book, could best be explained by a dialogue captured by a hidden camera, between Le Roux and a Colombian US Drug Enforcement Agency asset posing as a drug trafficker.

“You are not Filipino, why the Philippines?” asked the Colombian to Le Roux, according to the book’s quotation of the dialogue.

“Basically, as far as Asia goes, it’s the best **** hole we can find,” Le Roux had replied, the book said.

It was a dialogue for a deal that had Le Roux trading meth manufactured by his syndicate in the Philippines for cocaine from Colombia, according to the book.

“You are cooking your **** in the Philippines?” the Colombian asked.

At the book’s epilogue, Le Roux was further quoted as explaining during court testimony in the United States why he chose the Philippines as his base.

“He was unconcerned about the consequences in the Philippines,” the book said.

Then it quoted Le Roux during his testimony about operating from the Philippines: “I didn’t care who knew what, whether people (in the Philippines) knew the crimes were happening or not because I had the police in my payroll.”

“I was protected,” Le Roux was quoted as saying in court.

Discussing the Lee murder with a Philippine National Bureau of Investigation agent, the book explained why the NBI had taken on the Lee case.

“The ranks of local and national police in the Philippines are rife with corruption and the NBI had a better, though not spotless, reputation for integrity,” the book said.

“Contract murder was a thriving industry in the Philippines: having someone killed costs as little as 5,000 pesos, or around 100 dollars,” the book said in its prologue.

According to The Mastermind, Le Roux recruited mercenaries, some Americans and some Israelis, to provide him security in the Philippines.

With those mercenaries around, “Le Roux could now operate freely in the Philippines with little concern for legal repercussions,” the book said.

“There was no problem that he couldn’t buy his way out of, no law enforcement agency that couldn’t be captured, no intelligence that was out of reach,” the book quoted one associate of Le Roux as saying why the crime boss used the Philippines as his base.

To facilitate his arms smuggling, Le Roux opened up a gun shop, Red, White and Blue Arms with the help of Filipino associates.

Le Roux, according to the book, also had Filipino women brought to him to fulfill his sexual fantasies.

But one woman, the book, said refused to perform an unspecified sexual act on Le Roux and was beaten black and blue.

Quoting one of Le Roux’s mercenaries, the book said the woman turned out to be the daughter of a Philippine senator, who was not identified in the book.

Le Roux, The Mastermind said, “beat her up with a baseball bat.”

The woman, the mercenary was quoted, was the daughter of a senator which made it a “big, big deal.”

Although describing it as just a story that the mercenary confirmed from another source, the book said Le Roux invited the senator to his office and offered him “two to three million dollars” and to be in the crime boss’ payroll as compensation “for your baby girl.”

“That was Le Roux, his power in the Philippines,” the book further quoted the mercenary source.

“He had not the President, but up the chain,” the mercenary said, according to the book.

“Right hands of the President. Commanders, Generals. He had the Filipino staff working in the US Embassy on the payroll,” the mercenary continued, according to the book.

It explained why Le Roux operated with impunity in the Philippines, even having those he wanted to be killed shot in front of a crowded bar, or a road in the tourist area of Subic, or, in the Catherine Lee’s case, while inside a Toyota Innova in Batangas province.

At the book’s epilogue, its author, Ratliff, said he wondered how Le Roux would have operated under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte, who had launched a brutal campaign against drugs and criminality that had already claimed the lives of thousands of people.

“One source connected to the Manila underworld told me he’d talked to people at the highest levels of the (drug) cartels now active in the country, who said that the killing campaign was targeted only at addicts and low-level dealers, leaving the higher-ups, who knew how to pay for protection, untouched,” Ratliff wrote.

“The drug business, he said, was booming,” he continued. “They said ‘we’re sending in more (drugs).’ They’re stockpiling it,” he added.

“So you killed how many thousands of people? There’s no dent in it (the drug trade in the Philippines),” Ratliff wrote, quoting his underworld source.

Anak ng CDO mayor, 7 iba pa huli; party drugs nasamsam sa Angeles City
Trisha Mostoles, ABS-CBN News
Posted at Jul 03 2019 04:48 PM | Updated as of Jul 03 2019 05:10 PM



Walong katao, kabilang ang anak ng isang alkalde, ang naaresto ng awtoridad sa buy-bust operation sa isang hotel sa Barangay Malabanias sa Angeles City kung saan nakumpiska ang nasa P1-milyong halaga ng party drugs.

Nakilala ang mga suspek na sina Bernice Fabiosa, 21; Ma. Isabel Lawas, 19; Aileen Baldon, 23; Jamie Mendoza, 20; Jessa Scott, 19; Bernadeth Saavedra, 19; Gregorio Imperial, 26; at Sean Moreno, 42, na anak umano ni Cagayan De Oro Mayor Oscar Moreno.

“I was able to speak with the suspect po at kinonfirm po niya na anak siya ng mayor,” sabi ni Glenn Guillermo, Public Information Officer ng Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Regional Office 3.

Hunyo 29 nang madakip ang mga suspek matapos na makipag-transaksiyon para sa P200,000 na halaga ng DMT, isang uri ng party drug na hallucinogen.

“Hindi sila nag-stay dito sa Pampanga, sa Manila sila, may binagsakan lang po sila dito sa Angeles City. It’s a highly urbanized city, nandun 'yung mga pubs so siyempre nandun 'yung mga parties,” sabi pa ni Guillermo.

Ang pagkakaaresto sa kanila ay bunga ng isang buwang surveillance at sa tulong na rin ng isang impormante.

Nakuha sa kanila ang aabot sa P1-milyong halaga ng party drugs tulad ng 310 tabletas ng ecstasy; limang pirasong Dimethyl Tripticase (DMT); 100 piraso ng valium; tatlong plastic ng hinihinalang kush or hybrid marijuana; isang plastic na may tinatayang 0.75 gramo ng cocaine; at weighing scale.

Positibo din sa drug test ang ilan sa mga suspek kabilang si Moreno.

Nakasuhan na ang mga suspek na kasalukuyang nakakulong sa PDEA Regional Office 3.

P8-M worth of 'shabu' in tea pouch seized in Cebu City
ABS-CBN News
Posted at Jul 02 2019 11:12 AM



CEBU CITY - More than P8 million worth of illegal drugs were seized in a buy-bust operation here early Tuesday.

Some 48 sachets of suspected shabu concealed in a pouch of tea were seized from alias Landoy, who is allegedly part of a big drug group in Cebu province, according to Drug Enforcement Group chief Police Lt. Col. Glenn Mayam.

The suspect confessed that it was his first transaction and that he was contacted by a certain ‘Mark’ that someone would deliver a pouch of shabu, Mayam said.

Authorities located Landoy through a suspect earlier arrested by the Consolacion Police, he said..

Police are looking into the possibility that the drugs came from other countries considering the tea pouch that was used to transport the items.

20 Rodriguez cops ordered relieved over young girl's death in drug op

Myca's dad fired first, says witness

Alleged drug suspect Renato Ulpina, the father of the three-year-old girl who died in a buy-bust operation, was the one who fired first, according to a neighbor who witnessed the shootout in Rodriguez, Rizal.

In a report by Mariz Umali in GMA News TV's State of the Nation with Jessica Soho on Wednesday, the witness who requested anonymity said that a police officer was shot by the suspect.

Ulpina also sustained a gunshot wound while his daughter Kateleen Myca suffered from a gunshot wound to the head.

Despite this, the witness said Ulpina did not surrender to the police and even climbed up the roof of a house with his daughter.

"Nagmamakaawa po siya sa pulis na hayaan na po silang dalawa kasi nga po may tama na po ng bala 'yung anak niya pati siya may tama na rin," he said.

He added that the operatives, at this point, negotiated the suspect to hand over his wounded daughter.

"Ayaw pa niyang sumuko, 'yung anak iya naghihingalo na, 'yun binigay niya po 'yung anak niya sa pulis. 'Yung anak niya po 'yung una niyang binigay sa pulis para madala agad sa ospital then dun palang po siya nalaglag sa bubong kasi sa sobrang hindi na rin po niya kaya," he said.

The child was immediately brought to a hospital but did not survive the ordeal.

...

"Si Renato kasi talagang lalaban sa pulis hindi siya pahuhuli ng buhay saka nasa listahan siya nung sa Raga Group na gun-for-hire, carnapping and illegal drugs," Rizal Police Provincial Director Police Colonel Lou Frias Evangelista said.

Mother of 3-year-old girl who died in Rizal buy-bust op belies police’s claim

She said they were sleeping when the police entered their home and smashed their window, adding that the authorities did not show any documents supporting the legality of the operation.

The mother and three of her children immediately ran upstairs, but Myca did not leave her father’s side.

Myca was hit by a stray bullet, her mother claimed.

“Isa lang po talaga ang gusto kong mangyari—hustisya para sa nawala kong anak. Kung suspek na talaga nila 'yung tatay , dapat tatay na lang. ‘Di na nila dinamay 'yung bata. Tatlong taon e. Ang sakit,” the mother said.

Police claimed Dolofrina (whose real surname is Ulpina as per police) or alias “Kato” and his unidentified cohort were armed with a caliber .45 handgun and a caliber .38 pistol.

...

The wife virtually admitted her husband was guilty, and with this knowledge why is nobody asking what she did with it ? If you play with fire, of course you will get burned. The moment she became complicit in her husband's drug affairs she willingly risked her life, and her daughter's life, as collateral damage when the authorities catch up to her husband's crimes.

But this mother loved her daughter, judging from her reaction to her death. Why did she willingly risk her daughter's life ?

Did the loud senseless protestations of the so-called human rights advocates slash opposition forces affect her judgment and sense of right and wrong ?

Did their narrow-minded and short-sighted arguments blared all over the "independent" media emboldened her into thinking that even if they are doing something wrong the cops have no right to enforce the law against them, because hey, even the priests seemed to be on their side ? :?

:banghead:



Meanwhile...


De Lima hits death of girl caught in firefight between cops, drug suspect
Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:14 AM July 04, 2019
Inquirer - Manipulative Views, Biased News wrote:
“No words can express the anger I feel for what happened to Myka, whose life was sacrificed to Mr. Duterte’s fake war against illegal drugs,” De Lima said in her latest handwritten dispatch from her detention cell in Camp Crame.

“Another life was again wasted and added to the thousands of innocent victims of this spurious government campaign that has led to nothing,” she added.

So this confessed fornicator, a jailed first-time senator, faults the cops, the government for enforcing the law :banghead:

Even the suspect's wife admitted her husband had all the intention in the world of avoiding apprehension, while holding a gun in his hand.

The little girl was a victim of circumstances.

Not just in those few crucial minutes when her father engaged the police in a shootout. She had been a victim of her parents long before that. She had been a victim the moment her father started his drug habit with her mother's complicity. Maybe she was born into this world a victim already, born to parents either with drug habits or complicit in them. Did her parents even consider changing their ways in the face of the daily brutal accounts of deaths and arrests of the government's anti-drug war ?

Had things turned out a different way for her and she survived this incident, would she have grown up realizing how illegal drugs had been the source of so much evil in our society, or would she have simply taken the line of the disgraced senator and all the rest of the opposition that it is not the abuse and trade of illegal drugs that had taken her father's life away from her, but the government's anti-drug war ? :shock: :banghead:
