Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte has ordered police to carry out the standard procedures of his controversial war on drugs campaign even if his son is found guilty of criminal activities.

Duterte sparked international criticism for his strong anti-drugs stance, that has seen more than 9,000 civilians killed for links to drug dealing and use.

His eldest son, Paolo, has been accused as being a member of a Chinese organized crime syndicate and allegedly overseeing a drug-smuggling and drug lord protection scheme.

'My orders are to kill you if you are caught, and I will protect the police who kill you,' Duterte said he told his 42-year-old son.

Paolo faced the Philippines Senate earlier this month accused of being involved with the triad gang, allegations he described as 'baseless' and founded upon 'rumours'.
