"Tell the soldiers, there's a new order coming from Mayor".
Rights groups have swiftly condemned Duterte's latest outburst saying such actions of announcing bounty will only lead to more extrajudicial killings in the country, which has already seen scores of alleged drug pushers and users being killed by vigilantes since the president launched his bloody drug war. "Come on. Just laugh", Roque said. Duterte went on, evoking a dry laughter from the audience.

Human Rights Watch said Duterte's remark, uttered last week before supposedly surrendered communist rebels, is the latest of Duterte's "series of misogynist, derogatory and demeaning statements he has made about women" that encourages state forces to commit sexual violence during armed conflict.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte encouraged state forces to commit sexually violent acts against women rebels, including shooting them in the vagina. Duterte acknowledged that he has a "bad mouth" and that he's not a statesman, but said "the problem here is that I won" the election.
Mr Roque said the context of Mr Duterte's Feb 7 remarks was that he was angry communist insurgents had betrayed his trust and forced a peace process with the government to collapse.
When a rebel leader recently warned that the guerrillas could kill one soldier a day, Duterte countered by threatening to kill five rebels daily, offering to train tribesmen as militias and give them bounties to kill the insurgents.
