Duterte Promotes ‘Dead or Alive’ Bounties of $40K


Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte announced on Wednesday that his government will be putting bounties for two million pesos ($40,000 USD) for certain policemen, “dead or alive.”

Some policemen in the Philippines have been accused of working with drug traffickers, and those officers are apparently Duterte’s target as part of his nationwide bloody crackdown on drugs.

Duterte was speaking at National Police headquarters when he said he preferred these officers were brought in dead, AFP reports. Duterte promised to pardon anyone who would be convicted of murder for killing an outlaw officer.
