CONTROVERSIAL lawmaker Bung Moktar Radin today suggested that drug dealers be shot and addicts jailed – in the style of Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte – to combat the drug menace in the country.

Bung Moktar (BN-Kinabatangan) said AADK had failed in its efforts to fight the drug menace as the number of drug abuse cases had increased over the years.

“We should imprison drug addicts without trial. Any drug dealers, just shoot them.” Read more
