The fangs are out! Morales blasts Duterte for ‘goading people to kill’

Jul 14, 2017 @ 12:49

The feisty Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales has slammed President Rodrigo Duterte in an international news program over his oft-repeated threat to kill people.

In an interview with Japan’s NHK World Thursday (July 13), Morales said Duterte statements on killing were a “problem.”

“He’s goading people to kill people. That’s a problem. His communications people say, ‘that’s hyperbole,'” she said.

Morales said it was unacceptable for Duterte to threaten to kill people even if people or the police do not believe he will make good on his word.

“The directive to kill people under any situation– irrespective of how, irrespective of the context– to me that’s not acceptable,” she said.
