Philippine President advises citizens to shoot bribe takers

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte invited citizens to shoot officials demanding a bribe, but not kill them, otherwise you may not receive a pardon.

According to TASS , the Philippine newspaper Manila Bulletin informed the world community about this.

Duterte emphasized that the one who shoots at the bribe taker will not be imprisoned, but only seriously physically punished. The president also advised residents to beat corrupt officials, even if they are in his administration.

The 74-year-old politician, before his election as president, served as mayor of the city of Davao in the southern Philippines and became famous for his harsh statements about ways to solve the country’s acute problems.

In 2016, Duterte initiated a tough campaign against drug dealers, allowing them to be physically destroyed . As a result, in a short time, about five thousand people involved in the manufacture and sale of prohibited substances were killed. Such a policy of Duterte caused condemnation abroad, UN experts in the field of human rights demanded an end to extrajudicial executions.
