PHOTOS: Outrage in the Philippines as Juanito Jose Remulla III's face got blurred as he got arrested in a recent anti-illegal drug operation

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Outrage in the Philippines as Boying Remulla's face got blurred as he got arrested in a recent anti-illegal drug operation. (Read More Here).

The eldest son of Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin "Boying" Remulla was arrested in a recent anti-illegal drug operation, the official's brother Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla said Thursday.

Sec. Remulla, who just returned home from Switzerland where he attended the 51st session of the UN Human Rights Council, said in a statement that he is grateful to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency for doing its job "without fear or favor".

Gov. Remulla said in a Facebook post that Juanito Jose Diaz Remulla III, who was nabbed by law enforcement authorities Tuesday in Las Pinas City for alleged possession of suspected kush, is his nephew, being the oldest son of the Justice secretary.

Law enforcement authorities said seized from Juanito were two packets containing suspected kush worth around P1.3 million.

The drugs were allegedly confiscated during a controlled delivery conducted by an inter-agency task force to a house in Las Piñas City, where the suspect was supposedly the intended recipient.

The suspected kush allegedly came from abroad. Specifically, Carreon said, the 38-year-old son of Remulla will be facing charges for violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 and the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act.


“I do not know of the penalty with regards to the Modernization and Tariff Act because that’s with the Bureau of Customs. On our part, based on the provisions of RA 1965 for violation of Section 4 which is [the] importation of dangerous drugs, the penalty is life imprisonment,” he said in a mix of English and Filipino.

Carreon later added: “That is, assuming he will be convicted. It will still go through the legal process.” Wednesday saw the start of online murmurs about the drug bust that had resulted in the arrest of a relative of a high-ranking government official. According to PDEA, Remulla was arrested for participating in a “controlled delivery operation” of illegal narcotics, which is against Dangerous Drugs Board laws (DDB).

A controlled delivery means anti-narcotics operatives allow the entry of an illegal package to serve as the basis for the arrest of the recipient....

Investigators located a home at 1524 Hornblend Street in San Diego where investigators believe the item was sent from, which was allegedly owned by Benjamin Huffman.

Recipient information said that it was to be sent to a “Juanito Remulla” at an address in BF Resort Village. Even though he does not live there, police in Parañaque City, where the son of the Justice secretary was arrested, found packages containing the illegal substance.

The “heavy and sedating” effects are typical kush descriptors. Kush hybrids are known to provide a mellow, reflective high that can keep a smoker ensconced in one spot for hours. It is grown in its native South Asia, specifically in the countries of Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan. Dwarf marijuana plants like Kush are harder for authorities to trace than the more common cannabis plants in the Philippines.

According to the PDEA, the agency first saw this hybrid strain in 2018. President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. rejected Friday calls for Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla to resign from his position following the arrest of his son in a drug operation earlier this week, saying the demands have “no basis.”

More lawmakers have also backed Remulla, the senior deputy majority leader at the House of Representatives in the previous Congress.

House Majority Leader Manuel Dalipe called quit calls for Remulla “premature and unnecessary” as he said this will only “muddle” his son’s case.

“The SOJ holds a position of trust and as long as the president trusts him and sees him as an effective member of the cabinet, I see no reason for him to resign,” Dalipe said Friday in a statement.

Sen. Bong Revilla, an ally of the Remulla clan, also vouched for the justice secretary’s character.

“I know Secretary Boying Remulla as a decent person who is true to his word,” Revilla said Saturday in a statement in Filipino. “I believe him when he said he will uphold his oath and the law.”

“Let us not judge him on the fault of others but on his competence and performance. The fault of the child is not the fault of the father,” Revilla added.

Remulla also received unexpected support from key opposition figures such as Rep. Edcel Lagman (Albay, 1st District) and former Sen. Leila de Lima.

“While we cannot choose our relatives, we can choose not to intervene on their behalf for violation of the law,” Lagman said Friday. “It is different when one covers up or denies the patent culpability of a relative or ancestor.”

Still, Lagman said the Remulla family must explain why it took them two days to disclose the arrest and detention of one of their clan members.

De Lima, on the other hand, said she “can only sympathize” with Remulla, noting that his son is “presumed innocent until proven guilty.”

“Sec. Remulla, for the sake of your son, for my sake, and the thousands killed whose families are still grieving, make justice work again in this country,” the former senator said.
