MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday said he has fired another high-ranking government official.

Duterte made the announcement as he boasted that the immigration process in the country, especially for overseas Filipino workers, has eased.

"Noon, sa immigration matagal ang proseso. I think in my time, there is none. Kasi kapag may mag-report, sisipain talaga kita. That is why I fired a high government official today. I will not mention his name because I do not want to shame the family," Duterte said in a speech at the 7th anniversary of a public service television program in Pasay City.

Malacañang has yet to clarify the President's announcement.
