“[T]he human rights are coming. Good. And I’ll tell them, how many millions are affected by drugs? Huwag mo na lang isali ‘yung tinamaan,” President Rodrigo Duterte said during the 28th Bureau of Jail Management and Penology Anniversary celebration on July 12.
This is after the UN Human Rights Council, voting 18-14-15, adopted an Iceland-initiated resolution on Philippine human rights situation.
President Duterte said use of illegal drugs creates social dysfunction in the family.
“Ang mga bata hindi nakapag-aral. If the breadwinner, wala ng pagkain and they go about on their own ways to create another problem in our society. Hindi maintindihan nitong mga p***** i**** ‘to na may problema tayo,” he added.
“Iceland? Ano ang problema ng Iceland? Ice lang. That’s your problem. You have too much ice and there is no clear day or night there. Parang alas kwatro ng hapon ang araw pati gabi. So you can understand why there is no crime, there is no policemen either and they just go about eating ice,” President Duterte said.
“And if you look at the map of the Philippines, your right hand is the east, your left hand is the west. So they are jettisoning drugs here, nag-je-jettison rin sila dito sa kabila,” he added.
