MANILA, Philippines — The chief of the Philippine National Police hinted at the surrender of more "drug war" documents to the Department of Justice as he welcomed the memorandum of agreement drafted by the DOJ on the conduct of the joint investigation by the police and the National Bureau of Investigation on deaths in the administration's "war on drugs". 


In a statement sent to reporters Thursday, Police Gen. Guillermo Eleazar vowed that the PNP would extend all the necessary assistance in the NBI’s case build-up, especially the turnover of more documents and ensuring the cooperation of the involved cops. 


"Our people can rest assured that there will be no cover-up in the investigation of these cases...we have been adamant that wrong should not be tolerated and instead immediately which is being corrected because the dignity and integrity of the PNP is at stake," Eleazar said.
