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.
