More than 60 luxury vehicles and motorcycles were smashed up by a bulldozer in the Philippines’ Cagayan province on Monday in compliance with a directive issued by President Rodrigo Duterte to dispose of seized smuggled luxury vehicles.
The haul was worth more than $5.4 mln and included a Lamborghini, Porsche, Mercedes Benz and Harley Davidson motorcycle.
Duterte, known for his tough anti-crime policies, was there to witness the destruction and during a speech afterwards, he said it was necessary “to show to the world that we have a viable place of investment and business.”
On February President Duterte took similar move when he ordered the destruction of tens of luxury cars in an anti-corruption drive.
