Duterte: I killed those
who defiled Australian

A defiant Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte yesterday said he does not care if he loses in the presidential race, he stands by his remark on the gang rape of an Australian woman and will not apologize even with the Australian government and Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines entering into the fray.

“I was not insulting the Australian woman, I was derogating the act of rape, it's a slang actually,” Duterte said in an interview at the Bacolod People's House (Bacolod Government Center) yesterday afternoon.

The Australian missionary was raped and killed in a 1989 hostage crisis in a Davao jail. moremoremore
