DUBAI – A total of 68 smuggled luxury cars and motorcycles were destroyed recently as part of the Philippines’ anti-corruption campaign.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte watched as bulldozers crushed more than 297 million pesos (Dh20.56 million) worth of cars and motorcycles.

Among those destroyed in Port Irene in Sta. Ana, Cagayan on Monday (July 30) were luxury cars from Lamborghini, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz, as well as motorbikes from Harley Davidson, Triumph and Chopper.

The public destruction of the contraband vehicles was also witnessed by Cagayan Economic Zone Authority CEO Raul Lambino.

In a speech after the ceremony, Duterte said the destruction was meant to show his administration’s toughened stance against smuggling and corruption in government.
