Outgoing Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte promised to eradicate illegal recruitment when he starts his term as president on June 30.
In his first press conference as presumptive president in Davao City, he said would not wait for illegal recruiters to oppress someone before he’d have them arrested.
Duterte said he would be able to recognize an illegal recruiter when he sees one. “I can smell a rat from a mile away.”
“Lahat ng illegal recruiters, ‘di na kailangang may biktima pa,” he said. “I will order the arrest of all recruiters operating without the proper permit.”
Duterte also proposed the creation of a one-stop shop for Filipinos who want to work abroad.
