Duterte looking forward to smashing more Lamborghinis but not Harleys in Port Irene


President Rodrigo Duterte is licking his chops over the chance to see the destruction of smuggled exotic vehicles next week but he wishes his beloved motorcycles will be spared.

Duterte is a big bike enthusiast and the fanboy in him will surely make him cringe at the sight of his beloved toys getting destroyed.

But he believes crushing smuggled cars and bikes was one of the most effective ways in making importers pay their taxes.

“Next week, I will go to Port Irene to destroy the Lamborghini and other sports cars there,” said Duterte in a speech Thursday night.

“Me, I?m fond of motorcycles, but not very much for cars. There are motorcycles that would be destroyed there too. My heart will really bleed, but there?s nothing that I can do because the only way to settle this thing about smuggling is just to simply stop it altogether,” he added.

By holding public destruction of smuggled goods, Duterte said he would discourage smugglers from hoping to get their loot by bidding for these seized items in Bureau of Customs auctions.

“As they arrive and if there is no consignee or the consignee is fictitious, unknown, AKA lang other — also known as, AKA, mga aliases, all of them will be destroyed. But those behind their importation have already grown rich from that trade,” said Duterte.

“And you do not profit from it because you haven?t been paid yet. I do not follow a modality of periods where we can destroy it,” he added.
