Senator Win Gatchalian on Wednesday admitted that the conflict on medicine won’t be efficient if the federal government treats drug traffickers “with kid’s gloves.”
“When you deal with drug dealers, drug lords, criminals, you have to deal with them with a heavy hand,” mentioned Gatchalian amid mounting criticism on President Rodrigo Duterte’s savage conflict on medicine.
“Hindi pwede ang pakiusap eh. When I was a Mayor, we have this kind of problem, hindi pwedeng wag ka nang magbenta ng drugs ha? You have to really be decisive, calm and strong,” he mentioned.
Gatchalian, nonetheless, drew the road on zealous police going out of line in pursuing Duterte’s orders to go onerous on drug suspects.
