President Rodrigo Duterte brushed away demands that he give due process to police accused of involvement in the drug trade, as well as other drug suspects, saying that job falls squarely on the shoulders of the judiciary.

“Anong due process? Due process, ulol, kung nasa korte ka na. Kung sabihin, ‘We were not given by the President, due process.’ Eh tarantado ka pala eh. Hindi ako korte,” he said during an expletive-studded speech before fellow alumni of the San Beda Law School on Thursday night, July 14.

(What due process? Due process, stupid, once you’re in court. They say, ‘We were not given due process by the President.’ You’re crazy. I’m not the court.)

Duterte made the statement at a testiomonial reception for him organized by San Beda Law School alumni at Club Filipino in San Juan.
