Duterte gives up on fighting corruption: ‘Di ko kayang habulin!

President Rodrigo Duterte appears to have thrown in the towel as far as fighting corruption is concerned.

In a speech Sunday (October 14), Duterte said he offered to resign before high ranking military and police officials because he can no longer deal with corruption.

He made the offer during a recent command conference.

“Sabi ko, ‘Tumindig lang kayong apat ngayon. You stand up to signify your willingness that I will step down and I will step down.’ I offered to step down. Sabi ko hindi ko kaya. Corruption dito tapos maasahan mo dito, pagdating mo meron na naman na bago,” Duterte said during the book launch of former President Fidel Ramos.

“It was a Cabinet meeting then after that a command conference, sabi ko ‘hindi ko kaya’. Hindi ko kayang habulin. Hindi ko talaga kayang habulin. Every desk in that — in this government, with a few exceptions, merong ‘pag mag-transaction talaga,” he added.

Duterte, however, said no one from the military or police’s ranks stood up to him, which he took to mean they didn’t want him to step down.

“Hindi naman tumindig ang military pati pulis, ibig sabihin na sige trabaho ka muna diyan,” he said.

    Simple lang ang solution:  Bank secrecy law, ex-parte examination of suspects' finances.

    Tibagin ang mga judges na sleeping on cases before them, at mga incompetent na prosecutors.  Priority:  those in the Office of the Ombudsman at Sandigan.

    Nginig, nginig ang buong katawan ng mga corrupt officials.

    If corrupt officials are removed from office, everything else will follow.  Honest leaders will have better chance in election.  Dishonest ones will not run for election.

    Let us look into this issue another way.

    Ang asawa ng financial crimes, corruption at graft ay money launderingBakit walang mahuli ang AMLC, kung tama ang premise na ito?

    At kung tama, ano ang silbi ng AMLC? at AMLA?

    PRRD: Illegal drugs trade now a P215-billion industry

    The government must conduct a “thorough investigation” on the smuggling of illegal drugs using container vans by suspected foreign syndicates before blaming the Chinese for the offense, President Duterte said Sunday.

    The President said it is unfair to immediately blame the importers, including Chinese nationals, for the smuggled goods without a comprehensive investigation.

    “Kawawanaman ‘yung mg atao [I sympathize with the people] especially the legit importers and their containers are taken advantage of by criminal gangs so there has to be a thorough investigation before we start to blame mostly Chinese,” Duterte said during the launch of the new book of former President Fidel V. Ramos at the Manila Hotel.

    Duterte emphasized the need for presumption of innocence on the part of the ship’s owners and importers before authorities conclude their involvement in the illegal drug trade.

    “We have the cooperative international intelligence sharing and we can have that. So what’s more important really is not to drag along innocent people into a criminal case which we are not sure of,” he said.

    The President acknowledged that some international drug cartels have taken advantage of the container circuit to smuggle illegal drugs into the country. He said the drugs are usually placed under the steel container’s ceiling and covered with high-grade plastic to avoid detection.

    “I think this dope situation in Southeast Asia is being run by the Triad of Asia. And Sinaloa it’s doing its thing, the Medellin Cartel, using the network of containers,” he said.

    “That is why do not conclude right away that the owner of the container is the smuggler of the drugs. The smugglers and the Sinaloa have a captive audience inside,” he added
    He also said the country’s “vicious” drug trade has become a P215 billion annual industry “all reducing my countrymen into slavery to a drug called shabu(methamphetamine hydrochloride).”

    The syndicates no longer have drug laboratories in the country, Duterte revealed amid the intensified anti-drug campaign. The illegal drugs, however are reportedly being cooked in the middle of the ocean and dumped at sea to be picked up by drug lords.

    “So I said with a little bit of hubris but which was really needed to make people understand and maybe to realize the gravity of the situation. And I said: Do not destroy my country because I will kill you and do not destroy the young people, our only asset,” he said.

    “They are the assets — they are the human beings that would take care of us when we get old,” he added.
