Officer found shot dead at Philippine presidential compound

Officer found shot dead at Philippine presidential compound”

Duterte won the presidency with a wide margin a year ago on a promise to eradicate crime and corruption. Human rights groups say the figure is much higher.

Asked about the president's location during a press briefing several hours prior to Dagoy's comments, Duterte's spokesman, Ernesto Abella, said: "We don't have any information regarding that".

"Authorities follow protocols and procedures during the conduct of police operations".

Trillanes has repeatedly called on Duterte to sign waivers so investigators could check his allegations that the president had concealed wealth in Philippine banks, some in joint accounts with his daughter, which he said were not publicly declared in the past in violation of the law. Since entering office last June, his forces have killed over 7,000 suspected drug users and dealers, according to Human Rights Watch. Duterte also announced that his government would scale down dependence on the U.S. and get closer to China and Russian Federation. He also justified the brutal crackdown on illegal drugs, saying it is necessary to preserve the next generation.

During a speech on Tuesday, Duterte blamed gangs from Taiwan and Hong Kong for using his country as a shipping hub to smuggle drugs to the US.

An officer was shot on Tuesday morning at the Presidential Security Group (PSG) Complex inside Malacañang Park.

"Itong drugs ngayon is being operated by the 14K, Bamboo triad. They have taken over the operations", he added. On Friday, Mr Duterte said they made a decision to sell off pieces of real estate property they had inherited from their parents because they were already quarrelling over it. There are many empty bins with Chinese character. "It's actually Taiwan and lahat na", Duterte said.

Earlier in the day, at the 120th anniversary of the Department of Justice, he also mentioned the Hong Kong-based 14K and said this was why "I can not blame the ... the Chinese government or the people" for the drug entering the country.

Duterte said China, just like the Philippines, is experiencing troubles because of the drug menace.
