President Rodrigo Duterte believes the Rufino-Prietos are getting its simply desserts with the loss of Mile Long property as a result of of the way in which it used the family-owned Philippine Daily Inquirer for its personal profit.
In a speech in Cagayan de Oro City Saturday (September 9), Duterte stated he has no qualms cursing the Inquirer and its present homeowners as a result of the paper went overboard in using its energy.
“Ang Inquirer, sumobra. They were using the — the Inquirer as a power tool to control politics and to destroy reputations of people. Pagdating dito sa kanila, bi-**** s*** ko sila, at pi****** i** ko sila,” he stated.
The President has repeatedly accused Inquirer of slanting tales in opposition to him even through the marketing campaign season for the 2016 elections.
The authorities was in a position to wrest control of the Mile Long property in Makati City from the Rufino-Prietos after 30 years.
Duterte stated the property belongs to the federal government since its lease contract with the Rufino-Prietos was not renewed after it expired in 2002.
