Duterte in word war with Osmeña over Cebu’s problem with drugs, criminality

Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmea has found himself at the receiving end of President Rodrigo Duterte's latest tirade. In his sixth and latest visit to Cebu to grace the 49th Mandaue City Charter Day Celebration on Thursday, the President criticized the mayor and called him "hubris" or someone with exaggerated self-pride. The rift started when Osmea allegedly accused the President as a drug protector and reportedly asked him not to dip his hands in Cebu City's affairs and efforts in the war against illegal drugs. "Hoy Tomas! Dili na ni panahon sa Katsila ha, kanang style nimo nga mura ka'g si kinsa. Taas kaayo ka manulti. Ingon pa ka nga ako protector ng shabu," the President said...Keep on reading: Duterte in word war with Osmeña over Cebu’s problem with drugs, criminality.....»»

Sniper kills mayor linked to drugs

TANAUAN CITY --- Antonio Halili came down hard on illegal drugs even as he also fended off allegations that he was a protector of drug syndicates and expressed fear for his life shortly after the Duterte administration launched its brutal crackdown on narcotics. Until Monday, the tough-talking mayor of this city had been receiving death threats, but nothing specific. Halili, who became controversial for parading drug suspects through the city streets and for landing on President Duterte's "narcolist," was shot dead on Monday at a flag-raising ceremony in front of horrified employees. A bullet, possibly fired from a sniper's rifle, pierced the chest of the 72-year-old may...Keep on reading: Sniper kills mayor linked to drugs.....»»

Acclaimed filmmaker takes risky, murky plunge into drug war

There are three compelling reasons to watch the 13-episode TV series "Amo."   It's the first Philippine production to air on Netflix, the live-streaming international platform. Second, it's directed by the award-winning, critically acclaimed Filipino filmmaker Brillante Mendoza. Third, and most interesting, it's about President Duterte's brutal war on drugs.   Mendoza's biggest achievement to date is winning as best director in the 2009 Cannes Film Festival for "Kinatay," a story of crime and violence in the mode of cinema verit, or realistic, documentary-style filmmaking.   Since the subject of "Amo" is the drug war, Mendoza's flair for cinema verit is t...Keep on reading: Acclaimed filmmaker takes risky, murky plunge into drug war.....»»

How will DOJ now handle De Lima case? Ex-SolGen asks

The dismissal of the criminal case against high-profile drug kingpin Peter Lim and other alleged narcotics bosses has put the Department of Justice (DOJ) in a bind in a similar complaint involving detained Sen. Leila de Lima, former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay said on Tuesday. Hilbay, one of the lawyers for De Lima, lamented how the DOJ treated the two complaints differently although they both involved alleged violations of Republic Act No. 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. In July 2016, President Duterte tagged Lim, who turned out to be his wedding compadre (cosponsor), as the biggest drug lord in the country. "The DOJ applied the basic rules to co...Keep on reading: How will DOJ now handle De Lima case? Ex-SolGen asks.....»»

WHAT WENT BEFORE: Who is Peter Lim?

On July 7, 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte identified in public the biggest drug dealers in the country. Among them was Peter Lim, alias Jaguar, a businessman from Cebu. Mr. Duterte threatened to kill him along with other senior government officials believed to be involved in the narcotics trade. Days later, at the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency office in Davao City, Lim met with Mr. Duterte as he had feared for his life and denied his involvement in the illegal drug trade in the Visayas. Though there were many Peter Lims in the Philippines, the Peter Lim who met with the President was earlier investigated by the House of Representatives when it looked into the illegal drug ...Keep on reading: WHAT WENT BEFORE: Who is Peter Lim?.....»»

Duterte Order: ‘Shoot to Kill’

DAVAO CITY – President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered soldiers to shoot and kill armed communist rebels as security forces are readying to fight the New People’s Army following the total collapse of the peace talks. Duterte, who previously supported the rebel group when he was mayor of Davao City, gave the order recently and assured members of the armed forces that he shall take sole responsibility for it. He tagged the NPA as a terrorist group and vows to finish off the rebels who are fighting to overthrow the democratic government and install its own. “So what will be my orders to the? Shoot them, they will kill you anyway. So if there is an armed NPA there or terrorists, if he’s holding any firearms, shoot and tell any…ako na ang magsagot, you just shut up. Do not answer if that issue of human rights, you say, go to Duterte. It is and was his order para tumahimik ka, sabihin mo. And so? You are destroying my country, you expect me to pat you in the back and say, dahan-dahan ka lang,” Duterte told soldiers. He said an executive order declaring the NPA as terrorist group would be out soon. He said human rights organizations and fronts allied with the communist rebels would also be branded as terrorists. “I am preparing now. They are preparing the executive order declaring them to be terrorists and they will be afforded the treatment of being criminals. There will be no filing of cases under the public security like rebellion because rebellion is considered sometimes a noble undertaking, it’s only because you want your country to do better,” the tough-talking President said. Duterte said he would no longer negotiate peace the communist rebels, who also vowed to intensify their attacks on government and military targets. No. 1 Terrorist Communist rebel chieftain Jose Maria Sison also branded Duterte as the “No. 1 terrorist” in the country and accused him of mass murder after the President scrapped the peace talks. “Duterte is the No. 1 terrorist in the Philippines. He is culpable for the abduction, torture and mass murder of an increasing large number of poor people suspected drug users and pushers, peasants and indigenous people in suspected guerrilla fronts and Moro people suspected of aiding the Dawlah Islamiyah from the time of the indiscriminate bombing of Marawi City to the present in several Bangsamoro areas,” Sison, who is self-exile in The Netherlands since 1987, said in a statement sent to the regional newspaper Mindanao Examiner. Duterte has threatened to outlaw the Communist Party of the Philippines, which Sison founded; and its political wing, the National Democratic Front of the Philippines and jail its leaders, including leftist and human rights organizations conniving with them. He scrapped the peace talks after rebels declined to sign a ceasefire accord and continue attacking government and civilian targets despite on-going negotiations. Sison called Duterte as a “bloodlust” politician whose mania for mass murder are boundless. “Duterte´s blood lust and mania for mass murder are boundless. He expects to wipe out through arbitrary arrests, torture, indefinite detention and massacre of suspected revolutionaries and legal social activists both the armed revolutionary movement and the legal democratic movement in order to set up a fascist dictatorship in the service of US imperialism and his fellow oligarchs among the big compradors, landlords and corrupt bureaucrats,” he said. “And yet Duterte is utterly malicious and shameless in threatening and scheming to label and outlaw as terrorists the suspected members and entireties of such revolutionary organizations as the National Democratic Front of the Philippines, the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People´s Army and even such legal patriotic and progressive organizations as BAYAN and its affiliates,” added Sison, a former university professor. He said the Duterte administration, backed by the United States, is hell-bent on frustrating the people´s clamor for peace negotiations to address the roots of the civil war through the adoption and implementation of social, economic, political and constitutional reforms as the basis of a just and lasting peace. Sison said the Duterte government is striving to intimidate the people with its own terrorist scheme and crimes in order to seize absolute autocratic power for the President and limitless opportunity for the bureaucratic corruption of his family and ruling clique. He said the rebel forces now have no choice, but to wage all forms of resistance and fight for national sovereignty, democracy, economic development, social and cultural progress and independent foreign policy. “The Filipino people and revolutionary forces waging the people´s democratic revolution have no choice but to intensify the people´s war through an extensive and intensive guerrilla warfare in rural areas and partisan or commando operations in urban areas. The legal democratic forces and broad opposition have no choice but to develop the underground and encourage endangered activists to become fighters in the people´s army.” “Duterte is already discredited as a mass murderer, political swindler, a sycophant to foreign powers and a corrupt bureaucrat. These characteristics of his and the ever worsening chronic crisis of the semi-colonial and semi-feudal ruling system will surely limit his ability to stay in power and accelerate the growth and rise of a revolutionary united front against his rule of greed and terror,” Sison said. He said even within the armed forces and police, there are already rumblings against the “despotic, criminal and corrupt character of […].....»»
