The re­gional di­rec­tor of the Philip­pine Drug En­force­ment Agency (PDEA) in Bi­col has been ap­pointed as the agency’s di­rec­tor in Cen­tral Visayas. PDEA 7 of­fi­cer-in-charge (OIC) Ana Lynn Her­nan­dez-Nob con­firmed yes­ter­day that she will be re­placed by Emer­son Mar­gate. Mar­gate will be serv­ing as a reg­u­lar PDEA 7 di­rec­tor, not in an act­ing ca­pac­ity. The anti-nar­cotics of­fi­cial was one of 17 for­mer Mag­dalo mem­bers who were in­ducted as PDEA agents in May 2008. His fel­low ex-rebel Jig­ger Mon­tal­lana was ap­pointed as PDEA 7 di­rec­tor in 2011. PDEA Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Aaron Aquino’s mem­o­ran­dum on Mar­gate’s ap­point­ment was sent to PDEA 7 yes­ter­day, but it did not state the date of the turnover cer­e­mony, which may take place next week. For­mer PDEA 7 Di­rec­tor Yogi File­mon Ruiz was ap­pointed to head the en­force­ment and se­cu­rity ser­vice of the Bu­reau of Cus­toms last Sept. 4.
