The President of the Philippines allowed to shoot at corrupt officials. And recommended aiming at the feet

He emphasized that bribe-takers still cannot be killed.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte allowed citizens to shoot officials who demand bribes. About this writes the publication Manila Bulletin.

The head of state said that it was necessary to shoot so as not to kill the official. He offered to kick the corrupt official in order to avoid criminal prosecution.

If you pay taxes, fees, customs duties and so on, and these fools demand a bribe, hit them. If you have weapons, you can shoot them, but do not kill them, because otherwise you may not receive a pardon as a result of the proceedings.

Nonetheless, Duterte noted that anyone who shoots at an official will face “physical punishment,” but not imprisonment. The head of state did not specify exactly what the punishment would be.

Rodrigo Duterte is known for his uncompromising fight against drug dealers. He formed special police detachments, which on the spot dealt with drug addicts and drug lords. Duterte also called for citizens to join. In total , more than seven thousand people were killed as a result of the struggle .
