Sen. Koko Pimentel: Trust Pres. Duterte on His Declaration of "State of Lawlessness"


Senate President Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III urged his fellow lawmakers and the entire Filipino public to trust President Rody Duterte's decision to declare a "state of lawlessness or lawless violence" all over the country. Instead of speculating something, the senator calls for support and trust for the country's chief executive.



According to Sen. Pimentel the commander-in-chief, Pres. Duterte has access to all inteligence by high-ranking officials following the "Black Friday" bombing in Davao City which killed at least 16 people and wounding around 70 civilians.

Sen. Pimentel was quoted as saying "That's really the judgement call ofthe President. The President as more access to reports, intelligence reports, situation reports and high-ranking officials sa law enforcement kaya alam niya yung situation sa buong bansa. So sa judgement call ng Presidente, there is a state of lawless violence or lawlessness in the entire country, respetuhin po natin ang kanyang desisyon," said Pimentel.

The senator from Mindanao and the only PDP-Laban Senator during the campaign period added further that "Tulungan na lang po natin siya, anyway that's just a declaration so that to put on notice ang military, armed forces at ang buong bansa, na he will start using the military to suppress (and) put an end to lawless violence." Pimentel added.

Sen. Pimentel also reminded all Filipinos that the Davao City Bombing was already reported in various news media organization in the world and the international communities are now looking forward on how the Philippines will react to such violence.

He was quoted as saying "Nabalita sa buong mundo yung explosion so I think the entire world is also looking at our response or reaction. So normal lang po na if we tighten our security measures hindi ba mas good news na yun sa mga bisita natin na banyaga," said Pimentel.
