Duterte's marching orders to BuCor chief : 'shoot' smugglers

Marching orders have been given to Bureau of Customs Chief Rey Leonardo Guerrero toand that is to “shoot” smugglers.
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in a speaking engagement in Iloilo city, Duterte said he placed Guerrero, a former chief of staff of the AFP, in charge of the BOC to cleanse it of corruption. 
"Order ko, ‘pag may nagnakaw diyan civilian, Customs o Coast Guard, barilin mo, patayin mo. Sige, sige, mag-smuggling kayo diyan. ‘Yan ang order ko. Nilagay ko Army,” Pres.  Duterte said.

(My order, if someone steals there, Customs or Coast Guard, shoot them, kill them. Go ahead, go ahead and commit smuggling there. That's my order. I placed there [someone from the] Army.) 

“Si Jagger (Guerrero's nickname) naging Chief of Staff man ‘yan, kilala ko man ‘yan. ‘Di magsabi siya, 'Sir, binaril namin. Utos mo kasi, nagnakaw.' Eh tama ‘yan. Para sabihin niya sinong nag-iyak, biyuda? O sige, mag-demanda kayo. Yeah, you can go to court tapos ako ‘yung accused,” he added.

(Jagger was a former Chief of Staff. I know him. If he says "Sir, we shot someone. It was your order. Caught stealing." That's correct. If someone cries, widowed? Then go ahead, file a case. Yeah, you can go to court and I will stand accused.)
The President again took the chance to explain that former Customs Chief Isidro Lapeña had no hand in the drug haul worth billions of pesos that was able to slip past custom inspections.
“Si Sid Lapeña, nalusutan lang ‘yan siya doon sa --- kasi hindi taga-roon eh. Eh kaya, probinsyano rin ‘yung tao. Hindi naman sanay dito sa Maynila, nalusutan siya,” Duterte said.
(It [shabu shipment] slipped past Sid Lapeña. He wasn't familiar there. He was from the province, not used to Manila. It slipped past him.)
