Duterte blasts Callamard anew over call to end EJKs: T— i– niya!
President Rodrigo Duterte has slammed United Nations (UN) special rapporteur on summary executions Agnes Callamard anew for saying that the death of 17-year-old Kian Delos Santos should be the last.
Facing reporters in Pampanga Monday (August 28), Duterte became visibly irked when sought for his reaction to Callamard’s latest statement.
“T*** i** niya, sabihin mo. Huwag niya akong takutin. P***** i** niya. G*** pala siya eh,” he said.
In a tweet posted on August 26, the day Delos Santos was buried, Callamard said: “My heart-felt condolences to #kian family and to all families victimized by this cruel war. #Makehisdeaththelast #Philippines.”
Delos Santos was killed in an anti-drug operation by the Caloocan City police on August 16.
Duterte appeared to have a moment of confusion as he asked reporters what Callamard’s nationality was and where she was from.
When reporters replied that Callamard was French, Duterte said France is no different from the Philippines as killings also happen there everyday.
“Sa kanila, they can detain a person almost indefinitely, under the French law. And the French law says you are guilty, and you have to prove your innocence. Ganun ‘yan, presumption dito, inosente ka, it is the State who will… Panghuli na ‘yan. Papuntahin mo siya dito, sige sabihin mo. Nandito ba?” he asked.
Duterte told reporters to tell Callamard to visit the Philippines and see the country’s situation for herself.
“Do not ever give me that kind of s***. Republika ng Pilipinas ito, ‘di ‘to teritoryo ng France. G*** pala siya. Hindi siya nakikinig ng sinasabi ko,” he said.
In jest, Duterte shared what he will tell Callamard in French should they meet.
“Medyas mo, butas,” he said.
Duterte previously dared Callamard to fly to the Philippines to answer her questions on the drug war, provided that she be open to a debate with him and that she will make statements under oath.
