DAVAO CITY — The Presidential Security Group is strengthening the security for the First Family following the expose of President Rodrigo Duterte on personalities involved in illegal drugs.
In a City Information Office dispatch, Presidential son and Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte on Tuesday, August 31 revealed that the PSG assigned to them, whose members came mostly from the Army’s Scout Rangers and the Philippine National Police, has doubled the security measures. He said he requested tighter security for their children.
“Akong gipabantayan og maayo sa among pamilya kay among mga anak (I requested that security of our children be intensified),” he said.
He added that all of them is alert and are ready to protect themselves.
After revealing a matrix of officials involved in the illegal drugs trade, President Duterte has vowed to be “harsher” on his war against drugs.
On Monday, Duterte even scoffed at his critics and told not to scare him about human rights violations.
“So do not scare me about human rights. Sino bang pinatay ko? (Who did I kill?),” he said during the commemoration of the National Heroes Day at the Libingan ng mga Bayani on Monday morning, August 29.
“I simply want the law abiding and the God-fearing citizens of this country to be comfortable. Period,” he said. (davaotoday.com)
