There is nothing wrong in giving gifts “by heart,” Negros Occidental Vice Governor Jeffrey Ferrer said.

Ferrer, however, said accepting a bribe to exact favors is another story.

It should not be tolerated, he added.

Ferrer said he is more than willing to give vehicles to the Philippine National Police for use in tracking down criminals, campaign against illegal drugs, and other peace and order related concerns. (

If you are giving gifts by heart, you expect no return or repayment, he said.

President Rodrigo Duterte earlier said police officers should accept gifts if given out of gratefulness.
