“The Palace is vexed by the continuous spread of disinformation against our country’s campaign against illegal drugs and criminality,” presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in a statement.

The Palace official said the US docufilm appeared to be the latest addition to the “unmitigated vilifications” against Duterte.

“We find this derogatory and biased, if not outright fiction. It is obvious that the film medium is riding on the coattails of the President’s international popularity and success, and is being used as a medium to espouse one-sided information bordering to black propaganda aimed at gullible foreign audiences who know little or zero-knowledge about the Philippines and its government,” he said.

“Those who will watch the movie is advised and informed that the Philippines is an archipelago where the illegal drug trade is a billion-peso industry, in that 97% of small villages which we call barangays, have or had already been infiltrated,” he added.

He also reiterated that “drug-related killings are absolutely not state-initiated nor state-sponsored.”

He then echoed Duterte’s line in his State of the Nation Address that “those who abuse their authority will have hell to pay.”
