President Rodrigo Duterte once again warned the New People’s Army (NPA) to stop extorting money from the people, threatening families or businessmen if they refuse to pay revolutionary taxes.

“Ang mga NPA, kayo nakikinig kayo ngayon, kung gusto talaga ninyong tumulong, stop the extortion. Those are one of the things that I have just — when I was shooting the breeze with some of your guys. You will have to stop extorting money and ‘yung taxation ninyo,” the president said

Duterte pointed out that not even the government could collect money just like that to permit those who are campaigning.

“If you can’t stop extortion, you have no business… Hindi ka nga… Putang… Hindi nga nagkukubra ang gobyerno, kayo pa,” the president said

“We don’t even ask a single centavo and you are there giving permits.” He said

 “So you compete with government. So it is as if there is two governments in this Republic and so hindi talaga tayo magkaintindihan niyan. Away ‘yan,” he added.
