Duterte makes pedophile jibe
PHILIPPINE President Rodrigo
Duterte has asked the head of the country’s Commission on Human Rights if he was a pedophile for focusing on the killing of teenagers in the government’s bloody war on drugs. The agency has tried to investigate thousands of killings in the past 15 months, including those of two teenagers in August, in Mr Duterte’s war on drugs. Mr Duterte asked commission head Chito Gascon, “Why are you smitten with teenagers? Are you gay or a pedophile?” Last week, Parliament cut the commission’s budget to just $25.
