The operation took place in Cagayan Province, the northernmost area of Luzon Island, and was monitored by Duterte, along with leader of the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority Raul Lambino, and the province’s governor Manuel Mamba. The cars are reportedly part of the second batch to be officially destroyed in recent times.

In a speech prior to crushing the vehicles, Duterte said: “Breaking up the contraband vehicles is the proof that these operations will not be allowed here in Cagayan.”
