Duterte to personally look into violent dispersal at the US Embassy

President Rodrigo Duterte has took it upon himself to have a look into the police’s violent dispersal in front of the US embassy of the anti-US protesters.

As an individual who boldly proclaimed that “he would become the country’s first leftist President” during his campaign, Duterte began making phone calls last night.

In spite of this, the President has decided to save any announcement on the matter until he has returned in the country later in the week as he is currently in China for a state visit and bilateral talks with their leaders.


In a news conference, President Duterte had stated, “I will have to investigate. I’ll have to make calls tonight. But just to be very sure that I do not commit or I do not stray along other side issues, I will just wait for the official announcement to make upon my arrival.”

He further adds, “By that time I would have completed my assessment, personal, which will be provided by the police and the military. And, of course… the DILG [Department of the Interior and the Local Government].”

The President will be receiving a report from Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea regarding the violent dispersal.

Despite his criticisms on the US, the President expresses that, “Whether it is a friendly of a not so friendly embassy all over the world, we are bound by international rules and that we have to allow the establishment of embassies, especially if you have citizens in that country to protect.”

Duterte has also voiced his orders to the PNP to employ maximum tolerance when it comes to dealing with protesters stating that, “I have given my orders for a maximum tolerance policy sa pulis let them… I said early on: if you want to demonstrate tell me. I’ll give you a permit for one week just do not invade the Constitutional orders of the right also to use the streets and be safe.”
