Manila [Philippines], Dec. 29 (ANI
): Philippines President
Rodrigo Duterte has now threatened to throw officials out of a flying helicopter if they misuse public funds while admitting on live television that he's done it before.
"Whoever will use this (public funds) for corruption, I will get him ride the helicopter with me going to Manila and will push him out while we are up on the air. Yes I will do that! I did that before and I can do that again," Duterte said on Tuesday.
When asked if the event actually happened and if the person killed was a kidnapper, as local media was reporting, "It happened; he said it," the CNN quoted Martin Andanar, the presidential communications secretary as saying.
This isn't the first time Duterte has admitted to killing people.
Earlier this month, he told a business forum that he personally killed suspected criminals.
Duterte had previously been accused of killing a government official with a Uzi submachine gun. (ANI
