Hindi joke ‘to: Teddyboy Locsin threatens to ‘shoot’ soldiers who rape women

The country’s permanent ambassador to the United Nations has issued a death threat to soldiers who commit rape in the country after President Rodrigo Duterte made his remark over rape joke where he imposed martial law to try to crush Islamic State-linked rebels, who have been battling the military after laying siege to a southern city.

“Don’t worry, any soldier rapes a woman, I personally will shoot him,” Locsin tweeted.

President Duterte joked that soldiers could rape up to three women while reassuring them of his full support under the martial law in Mindanao.

“If you go down, I go down. But for this martial law and the consequences of martial law and the ramifications of martial law, I and I alone would be responsible, just do your job I will take care of the rest,” Duterte said.

“I’ll imprison you myself,” he said, referring to any soldiers who commit violations, then he joked: “If you had raped three, I will admit it, that’s on me.”
