Duterte: Barrio Patay, NHA-Mintal ‘criminal lairs’-A A +A
Sunday, June 8, 2014
DAVAO City Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte on Sunday singled out Barrio Patay in Agdao and NHA-Mintal as hosting a good number of criminals as he warned criminals anew against doing their illegal acts in the city.
“Do not ever believe nga gi solo ninyo ang evil aning kalibutana. Daghan ta demonyo aning kalibutana (You do not have monopoly over the evil, there are many of us)," he said in his program “Gikan sa Masa, Para sa Masa”.
"Guapo man ang Davao, sagana, barato pagkaon. Pero ayaw mo ug binuang. Adto mo didto sa laing lugar. Ayaw mo diri. Basig likod sa Samal namo makit-an. Palutawon gyud ta mo. Pag ampo ra gyud mo nga nay makakita kay kung wala..nah (Davao is beautiful, food is cheap. But don’t commit crimes here, go to other places, not here or you just might end up floating in Samal. Just pray that someone will see or else…)," he said.
Meanwhile, the mayor was at it again in his tirades against Justice Secretary Leila De Lima for her "premature campaigns" for the 2016 presidential election.
"Ikaw de Lima ayaw sige'g pangampanya, sayo pa kaayo. Kung ikaw nalang man ma president aning Pilipinas, mubalhin na lang ko ug America (Stop campaigning, it’s still very early. I’d rather go to America should you ever become president)," Duterte said.
Duterte's statement came after he criticized de Lima for allegedly failing to protect the public against "criminals."
He also criticized Commission on Human Rights chair Etta Rosales.
"Ang human rights ang ginaprotect nila ang mga criminal. Ang akong gi-protektahan ang mga tao sa Dabaw. Ikaw Etta, undang na anang imong Pdaf," Duterte said.
