Despite the tension caused by the recent The Hague ruling on the West Philippine Sea, President Duterte has vowed to talk to China and confront them on the deep involvement of some Chinese in the illegal drug operations in the Philippines. Duterte lamented that that the drug problem has gone alarming levels, due to the presence of Chinese druglords operating here. A number of the unclaimed bodies of those killed in recent intensified police operations were of Chinese descent, the President noted. “Itong mga namatay dito na unclaimed, sino mag-claim niyan? Most of them really are Chinese,” he said. Duterte expressed anew his frustrations at a fellowship with his batchmates at San Beda College of Law in Malacanang last Sunday evening (July 17, 2016). “That’s why, that’s my lamentations. Sabihin ko sa China one day: Bakit ganito ang sitwasyon? Why is it that your — hindi ko naman… not your sending — but most of the guys that come here do drugs, pati sa loob na,” the President said. He also referred to the convicted Chinese druglords who continue their trade even if they are locked up at the national penitentiary. Duterte vowed anew that there will be no let up in the anti-illegal drugs campaign. He said he will not think twice about executing druglords. “Itong krimen, hindi ako aatras diyan. And I said I can afford to say in public. I will execute you,” he said, telling his classmates that he also has Chinese roots because his grandfather was an ethnic Chinese who married a Maranaon. Duterte’s statement came after he met last Friday with Cebu-based trader,Peter Lim, who has been in the police’s watchlist for alleged drug links. Lim was among the three alleged Chinese lords tagged by the President in a matrix about drug operations in the country.
