Duterte does not believe her daughter's rape story

Duterte does not believe Sara Inday Duterte's story about being raped.

“Hindi ma rape ‘yan si Inday,  nagdadala ng baril’ yan (Inday can’t be raped. She carries a gun),” Duterte told reporters in an ambush interview at the University of the Philippines Visayas in Iloilo where he spoke at a forum.

He has said that he would also not want to comment further since this is a private matter between her daughter.

He has even jokingly called his daughter a "drama queen."

Last Monday, Sara has told reporters that she was a rape victim herself but did not find her father's joke offensive at all.

This was concerning the gang-rape and murder of Jacqueline Hamill in 1989 at a Davao City detention center.

Duterte apologized Tuesday morning for the rape joke he dropped to the crowd during a campaign rally last weekend, two days after he flatly refused to do so.

Duterte, already Davao City mayor in 1989, recalled overseeing the police response to the hostage-taking of missionaries at a Davao City detention center.  The missionaries held hostage by detained criminal suspects included Hamill, who was gang-raped and then murdered by the hostage-takers who slit her throat.  Duterte recalled seeing Hamill’s body and remarking how beautiful she was and that the hostage-takers got to her before he could (“Naunahan pa ang mayor. Patayin silang lahat. [They did it ahead of the mayor. Kill them all.]).
