Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has announced that 500 dollars will be paid to security forces for every communist rebel killed.
In his statement, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said he would award a $ 500 to security officials who killed communist rebels in an effort to reduce defense spending.
Duterte, who used the phrase "killing the communist rebels is easier than killing the birds because the rebels have bigger heads," has fired a new wrestler's wick.
Human Rights Watch condemned the declaration of President Duterte.
The organization argued that implementing such a prize could lead security guards to commit war crimes.
The International Criminal Tribunal initiated a preliminary investigation into Duterte because of the killing of thousands of people within the scope of the anti-drug struggle that was launched two years ago.
