BREAKING:President confesses to sexually assaulting housemaid

Social sharing

Philippine President, Rodrigo Duterte has confessed to sexually abusing a maid while he was a teenager, according to the BBC.

In a speech yesterday, Duterte was reported as saying he had confessed to a priest going into a maid’s room while she slept and placing his fingers on her genitals.

The remarks were not unusual for Duterte, who has frequently come under fire for making statements that demean or encourage violence against women.

Last June and July, women’s rights activists gathered in Manila to protest Duterte’s treatment of women, including his remarks that communist rebels should be “shot in the vagina.”

The new remarks stand out, however, because Duterte admitted to sexually assaulting a woman himself.

According to Duterte, when he was a teenager, he walked into the maid’s room while she was asleep and sexually assaulted her.

The BBC quoted him as saying, “I lifted the blanket. I tried to touch what was inside the panty. As I was touching, she woke up so I left the room.”

He later came back into the maid’s room and fondled her genitals again, the BBC said.

Duterte added that he later opened up to a priest who after hearing the confession, said: “Say five Our Fathers, five Hail Marys, because you will go to hell.”

Duterte, a frequent critic of the Catholic Church, then turned the conversation to accusations about sexual abuse by Catholic priests, according to Rappler.

Meanwhile, Gabriela Women’s Party, a political party that represents women’s rights groups, said that Duterte is “unworthy of his position and should resign,” according to the BBC.
