President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday warned drug lords inside the New Bilibid Prison to wait not for days, but hours, before he begins his crackdown on the illegal drug trade.
Duterte issued the warning during the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) change of command rites at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City.
Addressing drug lords, Duterte said, “Magbilang kayo ng araw sa ginagawa ninyo. Do not be the solution of it all. May problema diyan. Hinihiya ninyo ang gobyerno. Sinasampal ninyo kami. Magbilang kayo ng oras, ayaw ko ng araw.”
“Saan ka nakakita dito ng gobyerno na ang trafficking ng drugs is being controlled inside the Bilibid prison? At parang sampal ‘yan nang ilang beses,” the president said.
“How can it happen na kung mag-inspection ka sa Bilibid, you have to ask permission from the idiot inside. Hay nako… This is my first day. I’m warning them there, they have the TVs there inside,” he added.
