‘Subukan niyo’:Pres. Duterte threatens to jail those planning to file impeachment case




The President made sure his critics hear his statement, especially those who want him out of Malacanang palace.

"I-impeach ako? Kulungin ko silang lahat. Subukan niyo. Try to take it, do it, and I will do it," Duterte told reporters in Malacanang


He even dared his loud critics to try and file impeachment cases against him if they are brave enough.

"Takot-takutin niyo ako ng impeachment, p*t*ng *n*, subukan niyo. Sabi ni Erap, sa kangkungan kayo pupulutin, dito sa akin subukan niyo," Duterte said.
"Subukan mo. Kung lalaki kayo at matapang, may b*y*g, do it. 'T*ng *n*."

 University of the Philippines (UP) Institute for Maritime Affairs and Law of the Sea director Jay Batongbacal made a statement that President Duterte could face a fresh impeachment complaint if government agencies implement his pronouncement that Chinese fishermen can venture into Manila's waters.



"Kung mangyari po iyun, i-implement nila iyan dahil sa statement ng Pangulo, pwede po siyang kasuhan ng impeachment," Batongbacal said.


Earlier this week President Duterte was asked if the Philippines should deny China from fishing in the country's exclusive economic zone(EEZ). The President replied that China and Manila are "friends" and that there should not be any "bloody conclusion."
Presidential spokesperson,Atty. Salvador Panelo, later said the government would "tolerate" China's fishermen in the EEZ, where Manila has exclusive rights to resources, based on a 2016 ruling of a United Nations-backed court.
