Duterte out to ‘destroy’ female exec
DAVAO CITY—While it appears that he wants peace with Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, President Rodrigo Duterte said he would soon discredit a government official for overly criticizing him.
“You know I was the whipping boy of the NGOs (nongovernment organizations) and the human rights stalwarts. But you know I have a special ano kay ano, she is a government official. One day soon, I’ll have to let her go in public and I will have to destroy her in public,” he said.
When asked whom he was referring to, Duterte said: “That’s the riddle there.”
“Just wait. They might have thought that I never listened to them. So, while all the time they were also listening to what I’ve done. I’ve also been busy with the help of another country listening to them,” he said.
