Unforgivable! Gabriela blasts Duterte for rape joke in PMA

0 110

Gabriela party-list group has lashed out at President Duterte for making another controversial rape comment at the Philippine Military Academy graduation and letting the cadets get away with it.

“Unforgivable for the President to yet again make light of rape and excuse graduating cadets for the offense. What to expect from this? Rapist state forces in uniform,” the group tweeted.

The President earlier pardoned PMA cadets for all offenses including supposedly rape and illegal drug use, during the PMA event.

Duterte made the rape joke even as five women landed in the top 10 graduating students of this year’s PMA Mabalasik Class of 2019. Cadet First Class Dionne Mae Apolog Umalla is the class valedictorian of 261-member PMA class this year.
