President Rodrigo Duterte called the attention of his supporters to refrain from threatening journalist amid negative reports about the administration war against drugs.
“Itong mga international writers, every network meron iyan silang (they have) correspondents, everyone. Not necessarily a foreigner but a resident correspondent. And they are not the subject, I was told, of several threats,” he said,
“I appreciate very much your support and may be your—how would I say it—enthusiasm to back me up.” President Duterte said, addressing his supporters in his speech at the inauguration of a power plant in Misamis Oriental on Thursday.
“You are correct, I am doing nothing wrong but of course we should also not threaten people kasi hindi na sila makapagsulat ng totoo,” he added.
