President Rodrigo Roa Duterte warns Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to declare Martial Law if the Supreme Court continue to interfere his fight against drugs.
In his speech at Philippine Army’s 4th Infantry Division in Camp Evangelista in Cagayan de Oro on Tuesday, President Duterte express his dismay to Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno and warns the Supreme Court to declare Martial Law if they continue to interfere his war against drugs in the country.
“You are the kingpin in the judiciary. I’m the president. I have a job, it’s not yours,” said President Duterte.
“Your judges do not patrol the streets to catch criminals. That is my job. This is the big problem which I inherited from previous administrations, including the administration that put you in your position,” he said.
“Please, I am not a fool. If this continues, go on, stop me. Or would you rather I declare martial law?” he adds.
