“The Filipino people want to live in peace and security in their homes and communities – free from harm and danger from the lawless. But achieving this goal has not been without challenges,” Duterte said Wednesday morning, Sept. 22 during the High-Level General Debate of the 76th Session of the UNGA.

“I say this in no uncertain terms: The law applies to all.

Ulol, ni isa wala ka ngang naparusahan sa dami ng mga napatay. Sira ulo!!! He can't even do that to Sinas. What makes him think people should believe him that he would prosecute those he said he'd protect? Hahaha. Akala ko ba hindi takot sa ICC.

Blatantly disrespecting the rule of law e.

Duterte accuses PH Red Cross of gaffes in COVID testsPresident Duterte cited a report which bared that 44 hospital personnel, who were declared COVID-19 positive by the PH Red Cross after a swab test, turned out to be 'false positives' after undergoing confirmatory tests in another molecular laboratory. Cheap talaga So what do you call DOH double payment to PS-DBM on the procurement of face shields? That was a clean conscious premeditated plunder! And what about DOH labs not able to submit COVID tests on time which affects the accuracy of the daily tally? BOBONG PRESIDENTE! So how are you so sure that the confirmatory tests are the accurate ones? Or is it the other way around?
