The Free 3 day accommodation you would not want to take!
Just last week (from April 14 to 18 or a mere period of 4 days) the Boracay Special Tourist Police have arrested two foreign nationals (same country) for alleged possession of prohibited drugs inside a popular night club along the white beach. According to the police blotter and official records, these two foreign nationals were caught by the night club’s security guard (same security guard for both incident) in possession of prohibited drugs. The latest foreign national caught supposedly bought his marijuana from a drug pusher inside the night club’s rest room. Funny though, it was reported that the notorious drug dealer was not caught. It was the poor foreign national (in his early 20s) who was allegedly caught in flagrante delicto after the security guard “subdued” him (the security guard allegedly hitting him in the throat and poking his revolver against him).
Two foreign nationals, same nationality.
Caught in a span of 4 days apart.
SAME SECURITY GUARD.
SAME KIND OF DRUG.
SAME NIGHT CLUB.
NO DRUG DEALER CAUGHT.
What is happening to Boracay?
Be careful, it might be the last party of your life!
What is simply concerning here (aside from the fact that drugs seem to proliferate in the island), is the fact that this popular night club’s management ( a popular hangout for foreigners) has not tightened its security and prevent drug dealers from supposedly dealing inside their restroom as what happened in the latest foreigner’s case. Why were they not able to catch the drug dealer? The admission by the security guard that the supposed drug transaction happened in the night club’s restroom is an admission of security laxity on the part of the establishment.
Be careful who to talk to while on the island.
The Filipino tourist industry players have to protect the foreign tourists who still plow in money into what most have already perceived as a slowly-decaying island. Just imagine the horrorific experience of a vacation totally gone wrong ( incarcerated in a tiny cell in Boracay island along with local criminal suspects!). The laxity of security personnel makes possible the entry of drug dealers inside clubs and establishments. It is just too tempting for vacationing tourists to sample cheap illegal drugs which are seemingly delivered to their doorsteps. They not knowing that mere possession of marijuana will surely entail “free accommodation” for three nights at the police detention center. Worse, it the drugs seized turns out positive, he has to cough out a stiff bail bond of P 200,000 at the very least (if the offense for the kind of drug possession is classified as bailable). If it the accused is found guilty by the drug court for drug possession, then its game over for his free-wheeling days!
