Isumbong mo sa Pangulo! Duterte tells bizmen to divulge bribery offers
President Rodrigo Duterte has promised to meet with any businessman who would receive offers to bribe anyone in exchange for paying less taxes.
Duterte on Wednesday (December 6) urged businessmen anew to pay correct taxes so that the government can finance its ambitious infrastructure program.
“I don’t know how long I would last in this world, not in the office. But hanggang nandiyan pa ako, you just avoid and maybe you guys kayong mga businessmen, just pay the correct taxes and I assure you, if there is any attempt, maghingi or mag-demand or making it hard for you to do the right thing, you just call anybody in the Cabinet or kay Bong Go,” he said at the oathtaking of new government appointees in Malacañang.
“Hindi man ‘yan problema. I will grant you the audience immediately. Tawagan mo lang kung sino ang tawagan mo,” he added.
Duterte urged government officials to likewise turn down offers for a bribe.
“Meron naman mag-transact ng negosyo diyan sa gobyerno, even the slight na magbigay kami, mag — right at the start, putulin na ninyo,” he said.
