The information about Koreans greeting Mr. Duterte’s order with enthusiastic approval was relayed to this columnist by Moon Jong-gu (aka Richard Moon), a South Korean residing within the nation.

South Koreans comprise the biggest group of vacationer arrivals within the Philippines.

In response to Moon, South Korea views as very admirable the President’s concern for the well being of vacationers.

By the way, Mr. Duterte will obtain the Man of the Yr award from the Asia Journalist Affiliation (AJA) in Seoul throughout his state go to to South Korea in Might.

I used to be a witness to the President’s uncommon kind of management—as AJA places it—throughout a go to to Malacañang on Wednesday.

A Palace on-call pianist, Nonong Avila, whom I haven’t seen in years, instructed me his contract to carry out in any respect casinos owned by Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. was terminated abruptly in 2013 after he refused to signal a doc saying the government-owned company owed him P100,000 in leisure charges, when the quantity concerned was solely P10,000.

“The entertainment manager, Bong Quintana, said the P90,000 was ‘for the boys’ but I didn’t want to steal money from the government,” Nonong instructed me in tears.

Throughout dinner, I introduced up Nonong’s unhappy expertise with the President, who referred to as him to our desk.

After listening to Nonong’s story, Mr. Duterte referred to as for Particular Assistant to the President Bong Go and instructed the latter: “Have the entertainment manager dismissed and replaced by this man,” pointing to the pianist.

After which turning to the flabbergasted Nonong, the President stated: “Thank you for not being corrupt.”

Going again to Boracay, the issue lies with stakeholders who refuse to attach their pipes to the primary one on the island’s sewage remedy plant.

The Ayala-owned Boracay Island Water Co. Inc. gained the bid to arrange the remedy plant within the vacationer paradise in 2009.

Of the 500 or so vacationer inns, eating places and different institutions on the island, solely a handful have connected their pipes to the remedy plant.

Throughout dinner at Malacañang, the President instructed me he would compel Pilipinas Shell Petroleum to pay the P113 billion in again taxes and duties it owed the federal government.

The oil agency has appealed the matter with the Supreme Courtroom.

Nevertheless, the excessive courtroom has been vacillating on Shell’s enchantment.

The case is within the division of Affiliate Justice Antonio Carpio.
