Duterte Calls Gov’t Officials Who Fly Abroad Without Permission To Resign Or Get Fired


President Rodrigo Duterte called on government officials who have been traveling abroad even without the necessary travel order released by his office to just resign or get fired next week.

The word came from the Chief Executive himself, determined to remove corruption from his administration as he had earlier promised.

“Simply because I just said, ‘I promise you that I will remove corruption.’ Corruption, talagang mawala ‘yan. Just give me the third. In the third year, mag-le-level na ‘yan into normal,” the President said.

President Duterte is asking those government officials who have been traveling without the necessary travel authority – whom he did not name – to resign from their posts.

“All those guys who have been using money of the government, just easily going in and out of travel upon the invitation of maski sinong mga seminar-seminar and they are really just to… some of them without getting a permit and wasting the money of the people,” he said, during the launch of TienDA farmers market in Davao City last Saturday, November 18.

The President stressed he has to ask these officials to resign especially when they are using government money in travelling, others even lavishly.

“I have to ask them to resign. If at all, kung gusto ko man, kokonti lang and those important meeting. But just like ‘yung basta na lang na there’s a seminar about whatever – about farming, about corruption, about business, hindi natin pera ‘yan, eh,” President Duterte said.

“Basta corruption, I really do not tolerate it, I just say, ‘Mag-resign. Just resign,’” he added.

President Duterte said part of his efforts against corruption is to fire government officials who have been wasting people’s money traveling abroad even without the necessary permission.

“And there are a lot for next week to be fired. Those who went out of the country to waste the money without the permission of the authorities, in this case, the President, tiyak ako,” he said.

However, President Duterte was also quick to point out that he would not make public his dismissals to spare the officials from humiliation.

“So when I say to you, ‘You resign,’ go out silently para walang… less bloody para sa atin,” the Chief Executive said.

President Duterte said he is really bent on making sure there will be no corruption in his governance.

And should those asked to resign refuse to do so, then he will have no other recourse but to strip one in public by making the dismissal public.

“When I said na walang corruption, wala talagang corruption. Pahiyain kita. I will undress you before the public. Huhubaran kita talaga. ‘Yan ang sakit ko. Pahiyain kita,” he added.
