Duterte on drugs inside Bilibid: Kung ako ang president at that time, I would have declared martial law
If President Rodrigo Duterte had been the president when illegal drugs increase rapidly in the New Bilibid Prison (NBP), he would have declared a martial law.
In a speech of Duterte at the 10th Infantry (Agila) Division in Mawab, Compostella Valley, he encourage the public to monitor investigation against the drug trade within the Bilibid during Se. Leila De Lima's time as Justice secretary.
“Saan tayo makakita a country allowing drug syndicates to operate inside the Muntinlupa and directing the traffic?” Duterte said.
“Sa totoo lang, kung ako ang president at [the] time, I would have declared martial law. Tutal there was really a rebellion dito eh. Nagpapatayan. We lose soldiers. Ako ngayon, I lose on the average two policemen a day kasali ang military because I have ordered you guys to join because of the widespread,” Duterte added.
