Duterte: “Humanap kayo ng flag ng Singapore, susunogin ko”
From RisePhilippines
MANILA, Philippines -Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte yesterday threatens to burn a Singaporean flag after the Mayor heard that the Singaporean Embassy is mulling on filing charges on some supporters of the Mayor who uploaded a photo of Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Long allegedly endorsing Duterte.
“Humanap kayo ng flag ng Singapore, susunogin ko p*tangina.” (Find me some Singaporean flag and I’ll burn it!), Duterte said in his political rally held at Daet, Camarines Norte.
The Mayor even raised his middle finger and murmured some bad words.
The Singapore government has denied claims spreading online that its Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has endorsed a Philippine presidential candidate.
Singapore Embassy Manila said in a Facebook post last Friday that any report of endorsement is “untrue.”
“Embassy has learned of a FB post mischievously alleging that the Prime Minister of Singapore endorses a presidential candidate (Duterte) for the upcoming presidential election in the Philippines. This is untrue,” the embassy said.
From Philippine Star
MANILA, Philippines – The Singapore government on Monday said it is seeking legal advice over a “misleading” Facebook post indicating that its prime minister endorsed presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte.
In a Facebook post, the Singapore Embassy in Manila said it "takes a serious view" of a fake Facebook post containing a photo of Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong with a quote seemingly endorsing Duterte seriously. It also asked the public to remove the post.
The bogus fake endorsement bore the caption: "Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is the only presidential candidate that could make Philippines like Singapore."
Prior to seeking legal advice, the Singapore Embassy in Manila on Thursday also took to Facebook to clarify that Lee’s photo endorsement circulating online is not true.
Meanwhile, the Singapore government expressed its well wishes for the upcoming May 9 polls and stressed that it's up to Filipinos to choose their leaders.
From Inquirer:
In an interview with reporters in Sorsogon City on Saturday, Duterte said: “Gawin na niyang 20 years…Bakit ako lang? Ano ako uto-uto nila? Pareho kaming tatakbong presidente, bakit ako lang?”
The presidential race front-runner also said that he was just fooling his accuser, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, when he said that he has “a little less than P211 million” in his bank accounts.
“Hinila ko lang siya nang hinila kasi gusto ko siyang mag-execute ng affidavit… If he signs an affidavit stating that this is my account and the amount deposited, (expletive deleted) kaso ito,” Duterte said.
Duterte  earlier made public his transaction history in the BPI Julia Vargas branch which showed that it only has P17,000. The bank statement, however, only showed transactions from December 2015 to April 28, 2016.
Trillanes alleged the million-peso deposits happened in 2014.
Waivers on Waivers!
Presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said that he is willing to make public the transaction history of his bank accounts up to 20 years but he would only do so if his rivals would open theirs first.
In an interview with reporters in Sorsogon City on Saturday, Duterte said: “Gawin na niyang 20 years…Bakit ako lang? Ano ako uto-uto nila? Pareho kaming tatakbong presidente, bakit ako lang?”

THE TANDEM of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and senate majority leader Alan Peter Cayetano have signed a manifesto calling on all candidates for president and vice president to open their bank accounts and challenged their fellow candidates to sign bank secrecy waivers.
In a manifesto they prepared and signed, the tandem called on their co-candidates for president and vice president to sign their names pledging that they will make public their bank accounts, both domestic and foreign. They issued the challenge after they called for the lifting of the bank secrecy law for public officials and the passage of an anti-dummy law to prevent officials from amassing ill-gotten wealth using dummy bank accounts.
“Corruption, the victimization of the poor Filipinos, has already been a way of life. If I become president, corruption has to stop. Subukan niyo ako,” Duterte dared.

“This picture should lead us to think seriously and be concerned if this is the future for the Philippines which presidential candidate Duterte is offering to our people.”
Secretary Coloma
Malacañang on Wednesday did not mince words when asked about the published photo showing presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte with members of the New People’s Army (NPA).
“Freedom-loving citizens would find sufficient cause to be alarmed at the picture published in a major broadsheet (Philippine Daily Inquirer, 27 April), where erstwhile captive PNP (Philippine National Police) officers are shown wearing shirts with POW (Prisoner of War) printed thereon and being paraded by heavily armed NPA members in the company of Mayor Duterte, with the CPP (Communist Party of the Philippines), NPA and the NDF (National Democratic Front) flags prominently displayed in the background,” Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said in a statement.
“This picture should lead us to think seriously and be concerned if this is the future for the Philippines which presidential candidate Duterte is offering to our people,” he said.
The said photo was published by Inquirer with a story on the NPA’s release of a soldier and five policemen in Mindanao. From Inquirer
