Where will Prince Philip be buried, will he have a state funeral and where are other royals buried? The Duke of Edinburgh may have a low-key ceremony.
Duterte Harry: Philippines leader admits ‘faults’ including ‘extrajudicial killings,’ but says corruption isn't one of them
While addressing an official anti-communist taskforce on Friday, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte defended himself against claims of corruption but said hes working on his other faults, including extrajudicial killings.
“Faults? Me? Plenty. But I don’t steal money,” Duterte said on Friday as he reviewed his own record as the country’s leader. “I just have cases of extrajudicial killings. We will get there,” he added.
Duterte conceded that the “government is not perfect” as he addressed members of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-Eclac), which itself has been accused of employing brutal tactics in defeating the country’s communist rebels.
The president, echoing orders previously delivered to the security forces, said: “Kill them, kill them… Finish them off,” adding “but do return their bodies to their families.”
Turning his focus to the communist rebels themselves, Duterte proclaimed, “you are all bandits. You don’t have an ideology.” He said communist dogma is effectively extinct and that Russia and China have both adopted capitalism.
