President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday issued an apology for the abduction and killing of a South Korean man allegedly by rogue cops, warning those involved in the gruesome crime will pay big.
“I apologize for the death of your compatriot. We are very sorry that it had to happen, but I can assure you those responsible are known to us already and they will go to prison and I will see to it that they are sentenced to the maximum,” Duterte told several South Koreans during his speech at a switch-on ceremony of a coal plant in Sarangani. Duterte also warned those involved in the crime that they will suffer for their acts. “I’m very sorry for that sordid incident, but I can assure you, I will see to it. Better if they escape [from] prison. T*** i** kayong mga pulis. Bantay kayo. Hindi ko kayo papalusutin. You will suffer,”he said. “Maybe I can send your heads to South Korea.”
This is the President’s first public reaction to the scandal that has gripped the entire Philippine National Police, the institution most vital to his war on drugs.
