Para wala nang mukhang maiharap! Duterte wants bizmen to slap corrupt gov’t officials in Palace face off
President Rodrigo Duterte wants foreign and local businessmen to slap government officials who would be proven to be engaged in corruption when they meet in Malacañang.
In a speech at the launch of a Chinese automobile brand in Pasig City Wednesday (November 7), Duterte told businessmen to come see him at the Palace if they encounter corruption while doing business in the country.
Once the appointment is set, Duterte said he will meet with the businessman and the government official accused of corruption at the same time.
“I assure you that if it is indeed something which amounts to corruption or graft, I’ll give you the privilege of slapping that person a dozen times in front of me. That way, you placed him in humiliation and you maybe shed off his dignity,” he said.
Duterte described slapping as among the “right remedies for an idiot who is not needed in the government. “
“Humiliation and maybe a loss of face is more than just the money. It is the worst way of losing whatever is left of you in this planet,” he said.
