Two foreign nationals were arrested in Makati City following a drug buy-bust operation by the Philippine National Police (PNP) Anti-Illegal Drugs Group on Monday evening.

The police asset initially bought 120 tablets of blue cookie monster ecstasy from Canadian Jeremy Eaton.

The asset then bought 50 more ecstasy tablets from Australian Damian John Berg.

Recovered from Easton and Berg where 170 ecstasy tablets with a street value of P255,000 and P100,000 boodle money.

According to the police, the two suspects are connected to the drug pushers apprehended by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in connection to the Close-Up Forever Summer Concert incident.

The police added the two are part of a big syndicate of drug pushers.

"Ino-order ang mga drugs sa ibang bansa at pinapadala through courier," said Police Superintendent Enrico Rigor, chief of legal and investigation of the PNP Anti-Illegal Drugs Group.

 

 

"I was arrested on the lobby with no drugs on me," said Eaton.

Berg, on the other hand, denied he is involved in illegal drug trade.

"I have no purpose selling ecstasy. I have a good paying job," he said.

 

The suspects will be charged with violations of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.

It is going to be interesting to see if all those fellow countrymen who agree with the death penalty for Filipinos selling drugs still feel the same way when and if it is meted to those two foreigners. As far as I am concerned it should be equal justice and punishment for all but only if they are actually guilty, this will be interesting to find out if it was a setup by someone who did not like them or if they were stupid enough to actually sell drugs.

If they ever declare wine or beer as an illegal drug, a few of us will be in deep poo.

I wish them luck because they are totally fecked right now.

 

 

I was arrested, along with two of my friends, in Venezuela in the early 80's and charged with drug related stuff. The truth is we had one joint we were smoking on the beach, which one of my friends ate, so they had zero evidence on us but at the jail they produced some pills and coke (according to our attorney, we never saw it). It took a lot of people and a lot of money to get us out of jail so I am a little skeptical when something like this happens, especially in a third-world country where police are not know for being honest. It was stupid I know but a learning lesson which I never repeated lol.

Hmmm ... wonder if these guys are starting to rat one another out? Volume of drugs involved seems pretty large to have been a simple planting of drugs for a bribe in this Dutch guy's case. If this story is true, it is obvious that more of these dumb shits need to read the news (or this forum) about the incoming president.

MANILA, Philippines – The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Monday filed illegal drug charges against a Dutch dealer arrested in an operation last week that yielded P15 million worth of ecstasy.

 

Forty-seven-year-old Martin de Fong, nabbed last Thursday, will face charges of violation of the Dangerous Drugs Act before the Makati City Prosecutor’s office. He is the alleged supplier of ecstasy in a bar in Makati City.

 

In an entrapment operation last Thursday, more than 5,000 tablets of blue "cookie monster" and pink-colored ecstasy pills were seized from De Fong. According to online legal drug register pillreports.net, the blue cookie monster pill shaped after the Sesame Street character, Cookie Monster, is being sourced from Holland.

 

During the arrest, De Fong did not show resistance and tagged fellow Dutch national, Cornelius Merkars, as an alleged major supplier of ecstasy and cocaine. He said Merkars has been missing for two months after a report that he was abducted in Angeles City, Pampanga.

 

Meanwhile, the NBI-Anti Illegal Drug Unit said De Fong voluntarily surrendered the remaining supply of ecstasy in his condominium residence in Bel-Air Sojo, Poblacion, Makati City.

 

De Fong and the seized items were presented to the media on Monday afternoon. — Rosette Adel

 

And here's an older resource pointing out where a lot of the ecstasy seems to be coming from (China, Philippines and the Netherlands).
