Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte linked to killings by former police officer Arturo Lascanas – CBS News

“MANILA, Philippines — A retired Philippine police officer testified Monday that President Rodrigo Duterte and his men were linked to nearly 200 killings that the officer and a “death squad” carried out when Duterte was mayor of a southern city.

Arturo Lascanas outlined at a Senate inquiry some of the key killings he and others allegedly staged “with the prior knowledge, direct orders, consent, tolerance or acquiescence” of Duterte, who was mayor of Davao city. “What is related here is just the tip of a bloody iceberg,” Lascanas said in a statement distributed to senators.”
