One of the world's leading news media outlets dubbed by most supporters of Pres. Duterte as "biased international news media outlet" strikes anew against the Philippine President by publishing an editorial urging the world to condemn Duterte.



Presidential spokesperson Ernie Abella lambasted The New York Times on their latest biases against Pres. Duterte.

The Presidential spokesperson stated that they recognize the New York Times' 'right to opinion, however, we have clear disagreement with the newspaper's April 25 editorial, "Let the World Condemn Duterte," which was based on a complaint filed by a lawyer of a self-confessed assassin.

According to Sec. Abella, Pres. Rody Duterte's number one priority is therefore to save lives and to improve the lot of our countrymen with the cooperation of law enforcement officials, public health professionals, civil society and committed citizens.


Here's the Complete Statement of Sec. Abella:

"On the April 25 New York Times Editorial 

From Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella 

We recognize the New York Times' right to opinion, however, we have a clear disagreement with the newspaper’s April 25 editorial, “Let the World Condemn Duterte,” which was based on a complaint filed by a lawyer of a self-confessed assassin. 

The President was democratically elected to attack corruption and crime that have made so many Filipinos hostages to the criminals who had prospered through the rampant drug trade and other criminal activities that plagued our nation for decades. 

PRRD’s number one priority is therefore to save lives and to improve the lot of all of our countrymen with the cooperation of law enforcement officials, public health professionals, civil society and committed citizens. 

Consider the following tangible results: Crime is down by 30% across our nation during the first few months of this Administration when compared with the last months of the previous administration. More than eight of ten Filipinos surveyed by Pulse Asia in Metro Manila feel safer. Drug addicts are taking steps to find the help they need with more than 1.18 million addicts turning to the government for rehabilitation and other assistance. 

Drugs are killing people in our country and around the world. Our President is committed to stopping this cancer on our nation and to building a better life for all Filipinos."
