Duterte ready to be jailed if he’s with women: Kung bigyan ako ng limang babae, lilipad na ko sa preso bukas!
President Rodrigo Duterte is ready to go to jail– as long as he will be with five women.
Duterte made the joke Saturday (March 10) as he reiterated his vow to take full responsibility for any liability associated with the war on drugs.
In a speech before troops in Zamboanga City, Duterte told soldiers not to cooperate with any human rights investigation by the United Nations since he is responsible for their actions.
“And I should know how to protect you. Kaya sinabi ko nga, ‘Just obey my order within the legal bounds of the law and ako na ang bahala.’ Syempre ‘pag nakatutok na ang baril, kakalabitin ‘yan. T*** i** g*** ‘tong mga ‘to. Mga bugok,'” he said.
Duterte said he can’t help but lash out at the UN for its failure to understand why there are casualties in the drug war.
“Pati ‘yan gusto nila ako ipakulong. Kung bigyan ba nila ako ng limang babae kasama ko doon, ‘di… [laughter] P***** i** bukas, lilipad na ako saan ba ‘yang presohan na ‘yan,” he joked.
Duterte’s order for policemen and soldiers not to cooperate in the drug war came after the government expressed willingness to accept a visit from a UN Special Rapporteur, as long as it is not Agnes Callamard.
Human rights advocates have accused Duterte of ordering the killing of thousands of drug suspects in the course of his bloody war on drugs.
Duterte said his order for policemen and soldiers to shut up in the UN’s investigation is rooted in the legal principle that anything said by someone in a probe may be used against them.
“Hindi tayo nagpa-tigas-tigas. Only these guys do not know their law. Eh I happen to be a lawyer. I was once upon a time a trial lawyer for almost 9 years. I should know my law,” he said.
