- Foreign Secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. criticized public officials who have 9-year-old minds
- He raised this question in relation with the recently approved bill by the House
- Locsin also shared that parents of children who committed crime must be exterminated
After the House of Representatives approved the bill seeking to lower the age of criminal responsibility to 9, KAMI learned that Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. raised a question regarding this.
In a tweet, Locsin said “Ok. Don't you think a person in his 40s-50s but w/ the mind of a 9 year old & yet is elected to public office & entitled to pork barrel—40% of which he pockets—should go to jail? Think about it.”
In another tweet last January 19, Locsin said, “Children can commit crimes but lowering the age when they can be jailed at 9 will have pedophiles panting anxiously for the day they can call prison guards for take-out kids for sodomy. That is the only motivation for lowering the age of criminality to 9.”
Locsin also believed that children would not engage in criminal activities. Hence, it is from the influence of their parents.
In a previous report by KAMI, three former senators who were linked with the “pork barrel scam” or the misuse of Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF). These are former Senators Jinggoy Estrada, Bong Revilla, and Juan Ponce Enrile who are also running to comeback as senators in the upcoming mid-term polls.
