MANILA, May 20: The incoming mayor of a major Philippine city said Friday he was offering police bounties to kill criminals, deepening fears of extra-judicial deaths under the rule of president-elect Rodrigo Duterte.
Tomas Osmena, the incoming mayor of central Cebu city, told AFP he would pay police 50,000 pesos ($1,060) for each criminal they killed and 5,000 pesos for wounding them.
"If you kill a criminal in the line of duty, (you'll be rewarded), no questions asked. I'm there to assist the police, not to prosecute them," Osmena said.    ?AFP
