Less than 1% conviction rate in ‘17 cases so far

OUT of the 4,423 drug-related cases filed by the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) in 2017, 59 were dismissed and only 11 led to convictions.

Supt. Ryan Devaras, chief of the Investigation and Detection Management Branch (IDMB), admitted that technicalities during the inventory of illegal drugs after operations were often the cause of dismissal, whether in the prosecutor’s level or in court.
