The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) announced on Tuesday the filing of drug trafficking charges against suspected members of a drug syndicate that yielded P5-million worth of shabu during a buy-bust operation in Zamboanga City.
PDEA Director General Aaron Aquino said Sahari Sabturanio, 37, has been charged for the sale of illegal drugs and conspiracy to sell illegal drugs, which are in violations of Republic Act 9165 or the “Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.”
Aquino said the same charges have been filed against Ryan Rajan, 30; Kizzie Rajan, 30; Gasi Hadjirul, 42; and Albajir Sanny, 25, who were identified as accomplices following a buy-bust operation.
Aquino said PDEA operatives nabbed Sabturanio, alias “Dante Solaiman,” and his alleged cohorts during a buy-bust operation on December 2, Saturday. He identified Sabturanio as a watch-listed drug personality and alleged member of Kubal Drug Group.
