Walang kaibi-kaibigan! Palace says Duterte welcomes arrest of Kenneth Dong
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte welcomed the arrest of Chinese-Filipino businessman Kenneth Dong, one of the suspects in the 2007 P6.4-billion shabu shipment case.
“[T]he President always welcomes any arrest involving any person alleged to be involved in drug trafficking or any crime,” Duterte’s spokesman Salvador Panelo said on Thursday.
In his media briefing in Malacanang, Panelo reiterated that no one will be spared from this administration’s fight against illegal drugs.
“Regardless of whoever he or she is. Again, I will repeat: this President is no respecter of friendship, alliances, and relationship. Everyone to him is accountable before the law,” according to him.
“Everyone. And this is the only President, mind you, who strictly enforces the law even against himself. When he was Mayor, he scolded a traffic enforcer for not arresting him because he violated traffic violation and he insisted that he should be given a traffic violation ticket. Ito lang ang alam kong Presidenteng ganoon. So, if he is even strict against himself, di lalo na sa iba,” he added.
