Narco list may no longer be released – Duterte
“If I read it, they will kill each other. If I read all the names, they would start to cleanse themselves to prevent, you know, being drawn into the vortex of shabu,” he said during the 115th anniversary of the Philippine Coast Guard in Manila, yesterday.
“I am having second thoughts whether to release it or not, or simply if you read it, you will be discouraged”, he added.
It will be recalled that he previously stated that there are about 8,000 names of government officials included in his narco list, which inludes local executives, men in uniform, and even some members of the judiciary.
He also added that there are at least 5,000 punong barangays who are included in the narco list.
