Manny Pacquiao Wants “Mega Prison” for Corrupt Officials He Will Arrest
Presidential aspirant Manny Pacquiao will end corruption with 3-6 months and wanted to build “mega prison” to detain corrupt officials.
Pacquiao, a boxer-turned-politician, believes that if he is elected president of the Philippines, he will end the country’s corruption problem in a short amount of time. This was said by Pacquiao during a meeting with Paraaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez.
The world champion boxer revealed his strategy for carrying out his six-month anti-corruption campaign, which will supposedly penalize officials. He plans to establish a ‘special court’ to prosecute corrupt officials, according to him.
“Gagawin ko mag-create ako ng special court, may prosecutor, judges, para corruption, 6 months lang kaso tapos na,” said Pacquiao.
He further stated that he hopes the corrupt officials would be unable to fit into the prison and that another prisoner will be created for them. According to the presidential contender, he plans to construct a “Mega Prison” where politicians convicted of corruption will be held.
“Magpapatayo ako ng MP o Mega Prison kasi sa dami ng mga corrupt baka hindi sila magkasya sa ordinaryong kulungan,” Pacquiao said.
Some netizens, on the other hand, reminded Pacquiao that the Sandiganbayan and the Office of the Ombudsman are in charge of prosecuting corrupt officials. One of Pacquiao’s campaign promises was to eliminate government corruption. President Rodrigo Duterte, a longtime ally of Pacquiao, was also present and stated that corruption exists in the current administration.
