President Rodrigo Duterte said on Thursday, that at least two generals are still engaged in the illegal drug trade.

The chief executive can’t wait to fly back to the Philippines to address the case of the two high ranking officials involved.

“And right now, even as I fly here and go back. There are about again two generals who are still playing with drugs. And I said, ‘Well, I told you do not destroy my country because it is being flooded with drugs’,” the President told in a forum by a Russian committee in Sochi with Russia President Vladimir Putin in attendance.
Duterte did not name the two generals yet. “I found out about nine generals were involved in the trafficking of drugs.” He only named five – retired Deputy Director Gen. Marcelo Garbo; retired Chief Supt. and now Daanbantayan, Cebu Mayor Vicente Loot; Police Director Joel Pagdilao; and Chief Superintendents Edgardo Tinio and Bernardo Diaz.”
The President, however, did not explicitly said whether the two officials come from the military or police.

He believes that drugs could only prosper with the help of these officials from the military or police.
Duterte's revelation came amid the controversy following the PNP involving "ninja cops" or policemen recycling illegal drugs seized in their operations.

Duterte, on the other hand, had previously said he reserves judgment on the fate of Albayalde who is set to retire on November 8.
