Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has threatened to imprison anyone who tries to impeach him over his stance on a fishing rights controversy involving China, and challenged his opponents to go ahead and try.
“Me? Will be impeached? I will jail them all,” Duterte told reporters on Thursday amid an escalating national argument over territorial fishing rights. He went on to say that he was “challenging” his opponents to attempt it: “You really want to force my hand into it? Okay. You sons of b*tches, do it. Yes. File it.”
