BANGKOK, Thailand – President Rodrigo Duterte lashed out against the European Parliament for demanding that the Philippines stop efforts in Congress to reinstate the death penalty.

"Do not impose your culture or your belief in what would be a government in this planet," said Duterte on Sunday, March 19, during a gathering of Filipinos residing in Myanmar.

He spoke in English in the middle of a mostly Filipino speech to make himself clear to Europeans.

Unable to contain his frustration, the President cursed at the body of European lawmakers for their resolution.

"Itong mga buang na 'to, hindi ko talaga (These fools, I really don't) – why are you trying to impose on us? Why don't you mind your own business? Why do you have to f*** with us, goddamn it," said Duterte.

He took issue with how the Europeans did not seem to respect how Asian countries continue to impose the death penalty. He said the death penalty used to be a "favorite" form of punishment among Southeast Asian countries.

"Do not impose on other countries, especially us. This, before, was the favorite of ASEAN countries because there's a death penalty in Indonesia, Malaysia and I'm trying to revive it," he said.

Other Southeast Asian countries like Singapore and Brunei impose the death penalty.

Duterte pointed out that some European countries also impose capital punishment. Actually, all European countries save for Belarus have abolished the death penalty.

"As if the other countries of EU there's no more death penalty. There are still a lot," said Duterte.

The Philippine House of Representatives approved its version of the death penalty bill last March 7. It allows execution of drug convicts through hanging, firing squad, or lethal injection.

The counterpart bill still has to go through another 3 readings in the Senate.

Duterte made no mention of the European Parliament's call for the immediate release of detained Senator Leila de Lima, one of his fiercest critics. But the Palace and his allies in Congress have condemned it as a form of interference. – Rappler.com

  
Duterte blasts EU anew: Do not impose your culture on us

President Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday blasted the European Union (EU) anew, days after the it raised concerns about the human rights situation in the Philippines before the United Nations Human Rights Council as the casualties in Duterte’s controversial war on drugs continue.

"Do not impose your culture or your belief in what would be a government in this planet. Do not impose on other countries, especially us. Ito, paborito nila itong ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries, because there is death penalty in Indonesia, there is death penalty in Malaysia, and I'm trying to revive it... as if other countries of EU do not have death penalty," Duterte told the Filipino community in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.

"Itong mga buang na ito [European Union], why are you trying to impose on us? Why don't you mind your own business? Why do you have to f**k with us?" he added.

In a statement to the UN Human Rights Council, the EU said while it recognizes the importance of fighting the drug menace, it is alarmed by the “very high number of killings in this fight.”

More than 7,000 have died in the war on drugs, including extra-judicial killings, according to human rights organizations.

“The EU reiterates the importance of implementing the fight against drug crime in accordance with the rule of law and in respect of human rights. This must include the right to due process and safeguarding the right to life as well as the respect of the proportionality principle,” the EU said in its statement before the 34th session of the council in Geneva, Switzerland.

The EU has also raised concerns about the Philippines’ plan to reimpose the death penalty. Restoring capital punishment might prompt the wealthy block of nations to withdraw the trade perks it grants to the Philippines.

Duterte has slammed the EU and United States for criticizing his war on drugs, saying western countries should not be imposing their values on the Philippines.
