Pres. Duterte to Gascon: "Pedophile kang gago ka"

Duterte to CHR's Gascon: Are you a pedophile?

President Rodrigo Duterte on Saturday asked Commission on Human Rights (CHR) Chairperson Chito Gascon if he was a pedophile for being so "fixated" on young boys.

"Why is this guy so pre-suffocated with the issue of the young people, especially boys? Are you a pedophile? Mahilig ka sa mga bata?" Duterte said in a speech after meeting with a policeman held captive by the New People's Army in Davao City.

"Halos na lang mag-iyak ka ng dugo. Of course it's repugnant... Pero teenager ka na nang teenager. Hala, araw-araw," he added.

"You are so fixated with the death of young males, kaya nagdududa ako na pedophile kang gago ka."

The President said he looks forward to meeting Gascon in person.

On Friday, the CHR said it was "deeply disturbed" by the rise in youth killings citing the deaths of Kian delos Santos, 17; Carl Angelo Arnaiz, 19; Reynaldo "Kulot" de Guzman, 14; Raymart Siapo, 19; and Grace Omadlao, 16.

Arnaiz, who was found dead in a morgue on August 28, was killed by policemen in an alleged shootout.

The body of De Guzman, Arnaiz' last known companion before he was killed, was found floating in a Nueva Ecija creek with his head wrapped in packaging tape and several stab wounds.

Police also claimed Delos Santos was killed in a shootout during an anti-drug operation in Caloocan City on August 16.

Siapo, who was disabled with two club feet, was killed by several armed men and was later found with two sachets of shabu.

Meanwhile, Omadlao was raped and killed in Pasig City.

In approving the 2018 national budget, the House of Representatives gave the CHR a measly P1,000 budget.
