- Based on a report by Philippine National Police, Davao ranks the highest in rape cases
- According to Pres. Duterte, this is because there are a lot of pretty women in Davao
- This is why Sen. Leila De Lima filed a bill seeking to increase the age of sexual consent
It has been reported that President Duterte’s hometown, Davao City, has the highest record for rape cases nationwide. His reason for this is that the province has a lot of beautiful women residing in it.
KAMI learned from CNN Philippines that in his speech in Mandaue City on Thursday, Pres. Duterte said, “Nag ingon sila nga daghang rape ang Davao. Basta daghang gwapa daghang rape giyud na."
[Translation: They say there's a lot of rape happening in Davao. If there are a lot of pretty women there would be a lot of rape].
In a previous report by KAMI, Sen. Leila De Lima filed a bill seeking to increase the age of sexual consent for statutory rape from 12 to 18 years old. She also cited a data report by Philippine National Police saying that Davao ranks the highest when it comes to rape cases with 42 reports during the second quarter of 2018.
