MAYOR Rodrigo Duterte lashed out at Human Rights Watch after the New York-based human rights group asked the Aquino administration to conduct a probe on his alleged involvement in extrajudicial killings in Davao City.
Duterte on Tuesday night, May 19, sent a very brief text message Davao City-based Newsdesk Asia to air his side.
He called the people running HRW “hypocrites.”
“What?!!!??!! US-based human rights wants me investigated?!” he said in the text message. “You are all hypocrites! You cannot even protect the human rights in your own country the American-Africans and other minorities, not to mention your inutility in dealing with the genocide going on in Africa and other countries.”
He also dared the group and other crime watchdogs to come to Davao and experience his brand of justice.
“To all the bleeding hearts of US-based crime watch: You want a taste of justice, my style? Come to Davao City Philippines, and do drugs in my city. I will execute you in public,” he said.
