Senator wants passport of ‘drug queen’ to be cancelled
Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon yesterday urged the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to cancel the passport of the so-called drug queen Guia Gomez Castro who could be considered unlawful.
Bureau of Immigration spokesperson Dana Sandoval verified that Castro was able to leave the Philippines on a flight for Bangkok, Thailand, several days after arriving from Vancouver, Canada on September 18. She was not flagged by the bureau before leaving because she did not have a derogatory record.
Castro won in the 2018 barangay elections but immediately went on indefinite leave “for the purpose of local travel to Surigao.” Eleazar claimed that “She did not take [her] oath because she had knowledge that the police were after her.”
According to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), Castro worked with corrupt policemen to sell shabu (crystal meth) worth millions of Philippine pesos daily near the University Belt. Eleazar mentioned that the rogue policemen were members of a drug enforcement team who did not declare confiscated drug evidence so that they could sell them again.
