Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte admits murdering someone 'over a look' as a teenager

The leader of the Philippines has told a gathering of Filipino expatriates that he killed someone when he was a teenager.

The APEC Leaders' Meeting in Vietnam was the first opportunity for the two leaders to meet each other face-to-face.

"When I was a teenager, I would go in and out of jail".

"A gross violator of human rights in his deadly campaign against suspected drug users and peddlers has no credibility to convene a summit on human rights to include principally violator countries", Lagman said. "A real person, a rumble, a stabbing", Duterte said during a summit in the Vietnamese city of Danang, according to the BBC.

"I used to do it personally just to show to the guys that if I can do it, so can you".

"I think the President of the Philippines joins the rest of the world in maintaining that there should be freedom of navigation in a very crucial sea passage, sea lane passage", Roque added. "You f**k with my countrymen, I won't let you off the hook".

He praised India as a sovereign democracy with a population of over 1 billion as well as the largest democracy in the world. The ASEAN comprises Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

In a press briefing in Vietnam, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said their highly anticipated meeting "was short but it was warm and cordial".

"The president uses colorful language when with Pinoys [Filipinos] overseas", he continued.

"There was a tumultuous fight in the beach", he said in the interview.

"I will tell them, you are too presumptuous".

The Filipino president was speaking in Da Nang, Vietnam, while promoting his drug war which has already seen thousands killed, including children.

In December, Mr Duterte spoke of patrolling the streets of Davao on a motorcycle "looking for trouble".

He's said that he had taken part in at least one raid on suspected kidnappers during his tenure as mayor, which ended in the suspects' deaths.

The Palace official said Duterte has had the opportunity to clarify his position on the alleged killings in the Philippines.

Since Duterte took office 16 months ago, police say they have killed 3,967 people in the crackdown on illegal drugs. The Philippine president has denied any involvement.

In a televised speech, also in late 2016, he said had previously thrown someone off a helicopter and threatened the same fate to anyone misusing public funds. Since then, Philippine police have reported killing almost 4,000 people.

Duterte and Trump, who has adopted a similar strategy to excuse outrageous remarks spoken in earnest as jokes after the fact, could perhaps compare notes in Manila this weekend. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.
