Duterte’s threat came as the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) joined the chorus of groups criticising Duterte’s advocacy of killing. “I will retire with the reputation of Idi Amin,” he said in a speech Sunday, referring to the late African ruler whose 1971 – 1979 regime was characterised by large-scale rights abuses that killed tens if not hundreds of thousands of Ugandans.
