President Rodrigo Duterte said on Sunday he would only stop his crackdown, which has left thousands of drug suspects dead, if drug traffickers stop their trade. He warned anew that he has ordered policemen to shoot criminals who would threaten the lives of law enforcers.
Duterte said: "Follow the law and we're all right. Drop the shabu (methamphetamine) and nobody will die tomorrow, but I will not be intimidated and I shall not be stopped by just ... what? International Criminal Court? Impeachment?"
