Philippines’ Duterte oversees smuggled luxury cars being destroyed


As part of his anti-corruption drive, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte watched the destruction of over 60 luxury smuggled cars on Monday.

Bulldozers crushed nearly five million euros worth of luxury vehicles, which included a Lamborghini, Porsche, Mercedes Benz and several motorcycles.

Duterte said to a crowd afterward that the destruction was meant to show the country as a place of investment and his toughened stance against illegal importers.

The President has promised to fight corruption, crime, and drugs since he was elected in June last year.

Duterte, known for his tough anti-crime policies, was there to witness the destruction and during a speech afterwards, he said it was necessary “to show to the world that we have a viable place of investment and business.”
