Duterte a 'murderer,' says De Lima

Duterte said in a speech to business executives at the presidential palace Monday that he used to hunt down criminals himself to set an example.

Senator Leila de Lima called the comments a "betrayal of public trust" and said his behavior "constitutes high crimes because mass murders certainly fall into the category of high crimes".

"In Davao, I used to do it personally, ' Mr. Duterte said, CNN reported Wednesday".

"When he knew it, he made me stop and he said, 'The first thing you would lose is your cognitive ability'".

More than 2,000 people have been killed in police anti-drug operations since Duterte became president in July.

She noted Duterte's statement Wednesday that he would not abandon the police allegedly involved in the November 5 killing of Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa Sr. because it was his order to shoot those who would resist arrest. "President Duterte should be fulfilling his obligations by ordering investigations into these killings and bringing those responsible to justice, not claiming a part in them". "And high crimes is a ground for impeachment under the constitution".

The bank's shares rose sharply on news of its plans, and traded more than 10% higher in afternoon trading in Italy. It would also help boost the bank's core capital ratio to above 12.5 per cent in 2019.

"When he says that, he's opening himself up, isn't he? He said it, so the legal way is to go ahead and impeach him", the Senator said in reference to Duterte's remarks.

Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman said De Lima or any person can file an impeachment complaint against the President any time.

Often masked assailants break into shanty homes and kill people who have been tagged as drug traffickers or drug users. "And we had expected that he would but we were there not to listen to that", Wallace told Reuters by phone.

"The president always resorts to hyperbole, he always exaggerates just to put his message across", Aguirre told reporters.

Even if that were true, Aquirre said it did not necessarily mean that he violated the law.

Before his departure from Manila, Duterte said his trip to the Philippines' neighbours - he will go to Singapore after Cambodia - is in preparation for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit meeting which the Philippines will host late next year.
