Duterte slammed over shoot in the genitals remark


Manila : Human rights groups say the Philippine president’s remarks about troops shooting female communist rebels in the genitals to render them ‘useless’ can encourage sexual violence and war crimes.

The left-wing group Karapatan said that President Rodrigo Duterte “has distinguished himself as a frothing-in-the-mouth fascist who incites the worst violations of international humanitarian law.”  Human Rights Watch said Duterte’s remark,is the latest of ‘series of misogynist, derogatory and demeaning statements about women’.
