President Rodrigo Duterte has called out Commission on Human Rights chairperson Chito Gascon for being meddlesome to a fault.

In an interview aired over state-run PTV-4 Friday (September 15), Duterte said Gascon should not be meddling in what happens on the ground as the head of CHR.

“Kasi kung makipagsawsaw ka sa baba, ang… i-report mo mismo, ‘yun na rin ang pagdating sa mesa mo, ‘yun na rin ‘yung resulta sa nakita mo doon sa baba. Eh kung magdemanda ka, pag-aralan mo na ‘yung iyo ito. O, how can you be neutral?” he asked.

“Maghintay ka bago ka mag-comment. Head ka ng isang agency,” he added.

Duterte once again lambasted Gascon for saying the CHR will investigate alleged human rights violations committed by soldiers two days after he declared martial law in Mindanao last May.

The House of Representatives recently gave a P1,000 budget to CHR for 2018.
