Duterte orders military to crush enemies of the state

first_img In a speech at the 84th Anniversary of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on Tuesday night, the Chief Executive has tasked the government forces to destroy local terrorists who are still making violent attacks. The President also hailed soldiers for being the utusan ng bayan for being there in times of armed conflict and disasters. MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte reiterated his order to soldiers to “crush” enemies of the state including communist rebels. “Isa pang kalaban na sumisira sa buhay natin ay itong mga terrorista, kasali na ang NPA (New People’s Army), kasali na ang mga kidnap-for-ransom nandyan sa Jolo, ang Abu Sayyaf, at lahat na. Ang utos ko sa kanila (AFP), at pag sila (terrorists) ay lumaban, durugin para matapos na ang problema ng Pilipino,” Duterte said. President Rodrigo Duterte leads the awarding ceremony for the outstanding members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) during the AFP’s 84th anniversary at the Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo in Quezon City on Dec. 17. PCOOcenter_img “Sa utos ko na yan, na ubusin ninyo sila, sabihin ko sa inyo, time and again, I take full legal responsibility. I and I alone…will go to prison. You can enjoy your freedom. I will take the risk,” Duterte said. He assured soldiers that they have his support and even declared openness in taking full legal responsibility for his order. “Our soldiers, they are everything, and that is why you should love your soldiers. Tayong mga Pilipino, tulungan natin,” President Duterte said./PNlast_img read more

Baggies sponsor extends agreement

first_img Jack Wolfskin, an outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment specialist, considered ending their sponsorship of Albion “as one option” as the debate rumbled on during January over a controversial gesture made by Anelka during a Barclays Premier League game at West Ham in December. Anelka was handed a five-game ban and fined £80,000 following an independent regulatory commission hearing, after which Albion immediately suspended the striker. One of West Brom’s sponsors that threatened to withdraw its support during the Nicolas Anelka ‘quenelle’ saga earlier this year has signed a new deal with the club. In March, after Anelka announced on his Twitter account he would tear up his West Brom contract, the club then issued a subsequent statement saying the 35-year-old had been sacked for “gross misconduct”. With the matter now laid to rest, Jack Wolfskin has agreed to a one-year extension of an agreement that started at the beginning of the 2013-14 campaign. Albion’s head of corporate sales Ian Wain said on the club’s official website: “We are delighted to extend our partnership to a second year. “These are exciting times as the club prepares for a fifth successive season of Barclays Premier League football and it is great to have an internationally-renowned brand such as Jack Wolfskin on board.” Jack Wolfskin CMO Elke Stein said: “We are delighted to continue our successful partnership with Albion which will continue to increase our brand recognition in the UK alongside our other club partnerships and LED presence across the Premier League.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
