MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) warned the public against a group selling fake commemorative license plates of the agency.

In a statement, PDEA director general Dionisio Santiago said the modus operandi of the group Citizen Anti-Drug Action Group (CADAG), led by a certain retired Brigadier General Leoncio Daniega, was to sell PDEA commemorative license plates at P10,000 each.

The group was apparently telling motorists the license plates would give them “immunity from apprehension by any traffic enforcement units,” Santiago said.

But he denied these claims, saying, “This is an act of grave misrepresentation and is not in any way sanctioned or supported by PDEA.”

Santiago urged the public to be vigilant and to report anyone posing as PDEA personnel through the PDEA hotlines 929-7902; 928-3534; 928-4060; 928-0090; and 928-6829 local 0.
