After the resolution issued by the European Parliament urging the Philippine Authorities to do an immediate investigation into the increasing death related to the government's war against drugs, President Rodrigo Duterte has two words for them: "F--- You."
In a speech at the the Sulong Pilipinas-Local Governance Dialogues at SMX Convention Center in Davao City, he said: “Iyong nabasa ko ang EU condemnation sa akin, sabihin ko sa kanila, 'F— you.' You are doing it in atonement of your sins. Ginawa nilang istrikto-istrikto kasi may guilt feelings iyan sila. Ako dito, sino ang pinatay ko, assuming it to be true? 1,007? Who are they? Criminals? You call it genocide? Ilan ang pinatay nila?”
He argued that the EU has also committed several human rights violations before when they were still occupying other countries.
“Tapos itong EU ngayon has the gall to condemn me. Sige, I repeat it, f— you,” he said, before raising his middle finger. The audience then applauded.
The European Parliament on the other hand, which is composed of 28 lawmakers from the European Countries, has stated its support to fighting illegal drugs as it "remain a serious and national concern," however, in the resolution they issued, they also stated its concern "by the high numbers killed during police operations in the context of an intensified anti-crime and anti-drug campaign." It also urged the administration to "launch an 'immediate investigation' into them and adopt 'specific, comprehensive policies and programmes', in full compliance with national and international obligations and respect for human rights."
Meanwhile, President Rodrigo Duterte has requested a 6-month extension in his self-imposed deadline on ending criminality and drugs. “We are in a war against our self. There is an internecine thing going on. Hindi lang ninyo alam, you don’t know, kasi you remain to be stupid,” he said.
