President Rodrigo Duterte said he can eradicate illegal drugs in the Philippines in three to four years.
In a speech in Malacañang on Thursday, President Duterte said he will finish illegal drugs in his third to the fourth year as the highest leader of the land. He said he will do it even to the point of killing.
“Yang drugs na ‘yan, if it fails or if it succeeds now, I will be there to finish it off. At least on the third, fourth year, mawala ‘yan. Even if I have to kill, I will kill…Hindi naman ‘yang kill na literally maghanap ka lang ng patayin. But I will order you, before I leave the government, the shabu industry must be destroyed,” said Duterte.
He even joked that Chito Gascon, the head of Commission on Human Rights (CHR), can’t do something about it.
“Wala tayong patawad diyan. Wala ‘yang human rights, wala ‘yan. Si Gascon, ah wala ‘yan, sipain ko pa ‘yan,” said Duterte.
Duterte also defended his administration about the accusation that the war on drugs is only targeting the poor.
“Ngayon, ang batas… My purpose, my oath of office says I have to enforce the law against all, whether you are a rich guy or a poor guy,” said Duterte.
