MANILA, Philippines — A fuming President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday said “let’s just kidnap… and torture officials” of the Commission on Audit (COA) as he slammed the agency’s accountability measures that hampered government work.

“Ah, putanginang COA yan, letse. Yung COA, every time, may mali talaga. Ano ba itong COA na ito? Mag kidnap tayo ng taga COA, lagay natin dito, torture natin dito. Tangina,” Duterte said in a speech during the Barangay Summit on Peace and Order in Pasay City.

[Damn that COA. Every time, it has something wrong with it. What’s with this COA? Let’s just kidnap COA [officials], put them here, and torture them. Son of a bitch.]

“Puro yan pahirapan. Yan ang ayaw ko — ang pahirapan,” he added.

[All it does is make things difficult. That’s what I don’t want — making things difficult.]

The President had earlier dismissed the agency’s powers and ridiculed its regulations as just a “shit of a circular.”

He also said last year that COA employees should be “pushed down the stairs.” /atm
