Actors Joel Torre and Mylene Dizon have also submitted themselves to a drug test at the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters.
Actors’ Guild of the Philippines president Rez Cortez said PNP chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa confirmed that Dizon and Torre also went to Camp Crame in Quezon City to undergo drug testing.
“Si General Bato mismo nagsabi sa amin na nandoon si Epy Quizon, si Mylene Dizon tapos si Joel Torre,” Cortez said in a phone interview with INQUIRER.net.
On Friday morning, actor Jeffrey “Epy” Quizon, son of late comedian Rodolfo “Dolphy” Quizon, went to the PNP crime laboratory to undergo a drug test. He was accompanied by his fellow actor Cesar Montano.
Cortez, along with other leaders of actors and film organizations, met with Dela Rosa in his office on Friday afternoon to discuss the PNP’s planned crackdown on celebrities involved in the drug trade.
Also in the meeting were actor Leo Martinez, director general of the Film Academy of the Philippines, comedian Amay Bisaya, vice president of the Actors’ Guild of the Philippines, and Julius Topacio of Movie Workers Welfare Foundation (Mowelfund).
