From Spokesperson Ernie Abella – On the Resorts World Manila victims

The Palace wishes to express its deep condolences to the families and friends of the victims of the Resorts World Manila’s latest incident.

This is a reminder that civilized society has no place for this kind of violence. Thus, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has put the campaign against criminality as a centerpiece program of his administration.

The safety of citizens and the security of communities are our primordial concerns, and we hope to seek everybody’s cooperation to achieve a peaceful and fear-free environment.
