Pres. Duterte Warns AMLC Officials Who Were "Brothers" of Sen. De Lima to Resign Because of Corruption

The tough-talking President of the Republic of the Philippines, Pres. Rodrigo "Rody" Duterte warns and attacked official of the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) officials who were allegedly "brothers" of Sen. De Lima to resign from office because of corruptions.

Pres. Duterte accused the alleged AMLC officials anew for being uncooperative with the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) an agency under the Department of Justice, in their investigation of suspected drug criminals.

During a speech in the ceremonial signing of the 2017 national budget in MalacaƱang, Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying "I am warning again, Central Bank, for the second time.... Hanggang ngayon, there is no report of this AMLC. You know, I am going to charge all of you, criminally," Pres. Duterte said.

The former Mayor of Davao City added further that "I'll count one to three and if you do not resign, I will treat you as a drug addict. You're contributing to the corruption to the country," Duterte said.

The 71-year-old President explained further about what the AMLC officials submitted. He stated "You have reported to the NBI and submitted it very late, yet you do not have the assessment report. Kaya ko kayo nilagay diyan mga--kaya kayo nilagay dyan kasi may trabaho kayo. If you cannot do your job get out from that office because I'm--I'll transfer to the Bank of China. Eh mas marami iyong pera doon. Or Bank of America," he added.

The very first President from Mindanao warns further that he will bring down the corrupt officials of AMLC and promised to give them a whack because they are all corrupt and are not supposed to engage in politics.

According to Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II, Pres. Rody Duterte was just referring to the three officials in the AMLC. These officials involves working in the Office of the Executive Director, the Deputy and other other one is the head of investigation of AMLC.

Sec. Aguirre revealed further that two of those already identified by Pres. Duterte are "brothers" of Senator Leila de Lima. The DOJ Secretary was quoted as saying "One is Atty. Salido. The one I cannot remember the name. I'm sure he was referring to that, kasi hanggang ngayon stonewalling eh, ni hindi pa binibigay iyong may assesment, iyong may analysis noong account. Iyong binibigay lang sa amin iyong may statement of accounts katulad noong sa bangko," he said.  "Magagamit namin iyon, pero balewala sa amin iyon. Iyong account ni De Lima, iyong mga drug lord," he added.
