Col. Valeriano Perez, deputy PC-INP regional commander, said the campaign ~aill be conducted following the signing of a memorandum of agreement Uy the agencies concerned. The government agencies adopted three-pronged strategies, namely: --Conduct preventive education campaign targetting parents and other sectors. --Intensified enforcement activities through the machine of the PC-INP regiona.l command and other agencies, and --Rehabilitation of persons apprehended for drug abuse. Perez said tha.t sin~e 1978 the joint PC and INP has confiscated ~ome _ P28 mi.llion worth of mari~juana and other dangerous drugs from seven prov- inces in Northern Luzon. "While we are proud to have accomplished this much, i~ is not an indication, however, that more marijuana is produced in the region than others. Perhaps we have more efficient police system than the other regions," said Perez. Perez said targets of the antidrug campaigns by various gover~ent agencies are parents to prevent their children from falling victim of drug pushers. - He saiu ~Liat assuming that the PC-INP recorded about 99 percent efficiency in the prsvention of drug abuse based on the number of apprehensions, there are still about P200,000 worth of marijuana. planted in the market. 12 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007/02/08: CIA-RDP82-00850R000300040033-8 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007102/08: CIA-RDP82-00850R000300040033-8 Perc:z expl~,ined that if the c�sp~i.~;r~ is successful, we ma.y be able to eZiminate the evil. :~.r.s ve~~�;~ roocs. 0~'~er a~ecicies i.r~volved in t'r~c~ an.L-idrug campaign are the Ministries of Public Informaticn, Local Gove;-nn?ent and Cor~munity Development, Labor, Iiealtih, Ectucation and Cull.ur~, and Agriculture.

The girls ingested various doses of Valium as well as other medicines that belonged to a girl under treatment. There are several different reports of the case which alarmed the community and the 40 girls who live in this home for girls in irregular circumstances located at General del Canto 790, in Los Andes. In the Hospital - The physician on duty at the hospital, Juan Carlos Ferrer, reported that at 0900 hours the 14 girls entered the hospital with slight symptoms of poisoning. At that time, nine of them were hospitalized and three had their stomachs pumped. The others were resting comfortably and were under observation until 1700 hours. However, two girls, Elba Castillo, 12, and Maria Carolina Serrano, 11, remained in the hospital as a result of taking the medicines. Dr Ferrer indicated that their condition was not serious, but that they would stay in the hospital until they were co~pletely recovered. The doctor told us that the reports of the case are unclear, and that each girl took about 10 to 20 milli.grams of the drugs, a's well as concentrated vitamin~ and antfdiarrhea drugs. The Girls' Reports The girls in the hospital had differing explanations of the case. One of them, Elba Castillo, said that she had taken seven pills because an older girl threatened to hit them if they did not. She said~that she had a bad stomachache and that she had taken the pills by twos because they tasted good. 18 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007/02/08: CIA-RDP82-00850R000300040033-8 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007102/08: CIA-RDP82-00850R000300040033-8 I Carol_ina Se;-rano said that she i:otmd them in a locker where the resid~nts' nightclothe:; are kept, and they spilled onto the floor, where she could not keep the other girls frcnn eating them because they were diffErent colors. Sister Sar1, nf tha Order of tll~ Transfiguration of the Lord, who has been in charp,e of the Home for sev~~ra1 years, said that the incident occurred - because of the carelessn~sG of a uiothex who left her daughter a package of drugs without telling any of the nuns or monitors of the home. "Apparently," t;:e sister said, "the girls found the package in the dormitory, an~i rook the pills without anyone seeing them. Thank God we realized in time from the loolc of one of the girls, and within half an hour we had th~m all in the hospital.~' The strikino thing about the incldent was that none of the girls' fathers came to tlie hospital after the news was released, as the~majority of the girls were abandoned by their fathers. sss~ CSO: 530Q 19 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007/02/08: CIA-RDP82-00850R000300040033-8 APPROVED FOR RELEASE: 2007102/08: CIA-RDP82-00850R000300040033-8 CHILE BRIEFS _ EXTRADITION OF TRAFFICKER IN ITALY--Leontina Ginett2 Jacobelli Berrios, 61 years old, was recently arrested in Milan, Italy.
