Walang takas! Duterte warns oligarchs: I’ll hound you until you pay taxes

 

President Rodrigo Duterte isn’t done going after oligarchs after making Lucio Tan and the Rufino-Prieto clan pay.

In a speech at the Kapampangan Food Festival Thursday (December 7), Duterte said he will focus on making oligarchs pay their dues to the government.

“There will be no more sacred cows, ‘yung mga exemptions enjoyed by itong the ruling elite. The so-called 400 of society. I am not against the oligarchs, I do not nurture any class hatred against them but talagsng lalo na sila,” he said.

While he can let transgressions of ordinary people pass, Duterte said he cannot turn a blind eye to the wrongdoing committed by oligarchs.

He noted that it was only during his term that the government was able to collect billions of pesos in taxes from some of the richest people in the country.

“And think that they are of the belief na tapos na sila. No. I will hound them until they pay to the last,” he said.

Duterte said he is not afraid of oligarchs even if they can finance his impeachment or lobby for the International Criminal Court to start an investigation on him.
