MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to imprison the police officer who shot dead a woman in Quezon City last week.

“’He will really go to jail for sure. I will see to it that he will be imprisoned,” Duterte said, speaking partly in Filipino, in an exclusive interview with Pastor Apollo Quiboloy of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ that aired Tuesday.

Quiboloy brought up the topic of the death of 52-year-old Lilybeth Valdez whom Police Master Sgt. Hensie Zinampan grabbed by the hair and shot in the neck.

The officer was said to be under the influence of alcohol at the time.

Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, chief of the Philippine National Police, said Zinampan would face a murder complaint and administrative case.

“They have to pay. My rule is, if you are a military man, you are a policeman, you do your duty in accordance with law. Then when you get into a situation,  I will defend you,” Duterte said.

“But this policeman, you are drunk. You are stupid [torpe]. Then you kill someone. Ah, if I were there, I will kill you. You serve no purpose,” he added.

The president also recalled beating up erring police officers when he was still mayor of Davao City
