“I read the condemnation of the EU (European Union) against me. I will tell them, ‘fuck you.’ You’re doing it in atonement for your sins,” President Rodrigo Duterte told Davao City local government officials on Tuesday as quoted in Inquirer.net’s report.
The statement from the President came after EU Parliament passed a five-page resolution last week urging the Philippines “to put an end to the current wave of extrajudicial executions and killings” of individual involved in illegal drugs.
President Duterte said EU’s action was a result of guilty feelings over their atrocities committed in the past. The report from Inquirer.net added that the President also called EU hypocrites, adding that a check of encyclopedias would show what European countries like France and Great Britain had done.
“And then EU now has the gall to condemn me. I repeat it, ‘fuck you,’”he said.
