Philippine President Allows Citizens to Shoot Corrupt Officials

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte allowed citizens to shoot officials who demand a bribe. This was reported by the newspaper Manila Bulletin.

It is clarified that Duterte proposed shooting at the feet of corrupt officials in order to avoid imprisonment.

"If you pay taxes, fees, customs duties and so on, and these fools demand a bribe, hit them. If you have weapons, you can shoot them, but do not kill them, because otherwise you may not receive a pardon as a result proceedings, "said Duterte.

According to him, the only measure against anyone who shoots at a corrupt official will be “only serious corporal punishment,” but not a prison term.
