Speaking before representatives of labor groups, President Rodrigo Duterte has given the country’s oligarchs three months to return lands owned by the government which they have controlled for so long or people will occupy them.

President Duterte gave permission for the people to take over lands which he said belong to the public.

“So within the next three months, I will tell owners of the land which hold government land that don’t pay taxes, amounting to billions, and then you manage government land which you earn from and which no one knows why they’re in your hands in the first place,” Duterte said.

“If you don’t return government land, then I will ask the Filipino people to occupy the lands that are in your hands. That’s Makati, Pasay—you look for a good place there,” Duterte added.

Recently, the President criticized the Prieto family, which has a majority stake in the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

He said the Prietos must return to the government the Mile Long/Creekside property and also pay the P1.5 billion in taxes over the operations of their Dunkin Donuts franchise.
