Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte attacked the chairman of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR), Chito Gascon, asking if he was a paedophile for investigating cases of young teenagers' murders in the government's bloody war on drugs. "Why is this guy so pre...suffocated with the issue of young people, especially boys? Are you a paedophile?" Duterte asked, referring to Gascon. "Why are you smitten with teenagers? Are you? I'm having my doubts. Are you gay or a pedophile?" he added, according to Reuters.Duterte's comments came days after the Philippines congress allied with Duterte voted to slash the annual budget of the CHR to just $20.
