During Duterte’s public address aired Monday night, the President again defended government officials involved in the purchase of alleged overpriced medical supplies. Duterte also attacked Senator Richard Gordon, chair of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee investigating the procurement.

“Huwag kayong pumayag na sigaw-sigawan kayo niDick Gordon (Do not let Dick Gordon shout at you.) Just stand up and go out,” Duterte told government officials."I said if the [Senate's] sergeant-at-arms, i-detain ka (detains you) then once I hear about it, I will go to the Senate and get you and extract you.

We will be having a crisis... at the end of the day it is the country who will suffer," the President added. headtopics.com

He also questioned the intention of senators, asking if the Senate inquiry is being done in aid of legislation or for political purposes. Read more: CNN Philippines »
