MANILA, Philippines—Twenty Taiwanese and Chinese nationals have been arrested and charged with running an illegal drug den under the guise of a KTV bar in Pasay City, police said.

Armed with a search warrant issued by a Pasay court, a team of policemen from the Southern Police District raided the Blue Bird KTV bar at Lifestyle 2 Building of the Hobbies of Asia Mall on Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard in Pasay City early Saturday, according to a belated police report on the incident that was released only on Tuesday.

The report said some of the foreigners were caught in the act of sniffing cocaine.

The foreigners, including the owners and employees of the KTV Bar, underwent inquest proceedings on Tuesday on charges of violating sections 6 and 7 of the RA 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 which penalizes those found maintaining and visiting a den used for illegal drugs.

Chief Inspector Marlon Quimno, who led the raiding team, said a significant amount of white powdery substance believed to be cocaine and drug paraphernalia were recovered from the suspects.

“We got a report from a concerned citizen about the KTV bar being used as a drug den. For three months, we did surveillance to verify the report and it was true,” Quimno told the Philippine Daily Inquirer in a telephone interview.

Kung isipin natin sa Simula pa sila na ang SALOT at Perhusiyo sa ating bansa at Kababayan hanggang ngayon. Sa pamamagitan nang Smuggled na Droga na dala o gawa dito Marami sa ating mga Kabataan ang Nabibikta at Nasisira ang ulo , bait, at kinabukasan dahilan sa mga Demonyung Intsik.Dahil sa effecto nang Droga sa utak nang mga Batang Pilipino,mga Batang Babaeng 6-10 anyos ay ginagahasa at Pinapatay.Pagkatapus na mahuli at tanungin sila, Ang sagut ay hindi nila alam kung bakit nagawa nila ang Karumaldumal at Masakit na Pangyayari

    Mga Kababayan isipin natin na baka balang araw ang anak o apo natin o kapatid o pinsan o kamaganak o kaibigan ay maging biktima nang Droga. Huwag nalang sanang mangyari ito kaninuman.

    Ang Solution para sa akin Heavy fine and Life Imprisonment.
