MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Ignoring world-wide concern and criticism regarding extra-judicial killings (EJK) in the Philippines, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has issued a new executive order in support of his campaign to rid the country of crime, drugs and any form of threats to peace and order.
Titled, ‘An Act To Criminalize EJD,’ the executive order gives full authority to the Philippine National Police to jail — even without any warrant of arrest — any Filipino or foreign citizen caught sleeping or passing out in public after excessive drinking of alcohol.
EJD stands for “extra-judicial drinking.”
So if you’re gonna drink, don’t leave home. Stay in or face the full force of the law.
