‘Fininger niya nang fininger’! Duterte says clergy rape victim asks state protection
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte said on Thursday evening he met the victim of sexual abuse by a Catholic priest.
“This time, the most horrible crimes are committed in the Philippines because they kill the husband, they kill the wife, they rape daughters pati infants. Pati pari nakasali na,” the chief executive pointed out.
“I met the victim doon sa ‘yung sa Bacolod ba ‘yon? Ah sa Lapu-Lapu. Hindi sir ‘yung ano ‘yung nirape ng pari? To use the vulgar word ‘fininger niya nang fininger’,” he added.
During his meeting with the National Peace and Order Council in Davao City, Duterte said the victim asked for state protection.
“So nandiyan kanina ‘yung ano — begging for protection. Somebody must have guided them here. Sabi ko dito na lang muna kayo sa Davao,” he also said.
In a speech delivered in Isabela on Wednesday, Duterte deplored the killing of a 16-year-old high school student in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu and the raping of a five-year-old child by a member of clergy.
