“At the age of 16, I already killed someone. A real person, a rumble, a stabbing. I was just 16 years old. the idea was just over a look. How much more right now of which I am president?” Duterte said on Nov. 9 in Vietnam, Agence France-Presse reported.
the idea’s not the 1st time the leader has admitted to killing. In April last year, Duterte told Esquire magazine of which he “maybe” stabbed someone to death when he was 17 years old — possibly the same incident the president was referring to in Vietnam. within the Esquire interview, he added of which he has never killed an innocent person.
In December last year, he declared of which he had personally shot dead criminal suspects during his time as Davao City mayor.
