For retired Davao cop Arturo Lascañas, President Rodrigo is a murderer.

In an exclusive interview with ANC's Headstart, Lascañas was asked if he would consider Duterte as a killer (mamamatay-tao).

"Yes, based on his temper," he answered.

Although Lascañas admitted that he has never personally seen Duterte kill a person, he believes the leader is one based on his experience.

"Why? because he can summon us or anybody on his disposal to kill someone as he wish," he said.

He also revealed, Duterte has personally told him to kill someone "more than 10" times.

"Marami nang beses, hindi ko lang matandaan yung iba, mga prominente na lang," he said.

Asked again if he would say Duterte is a murderer, Lascañas said: "Parang ganun na rin, kasi lahat ng ginawa namin is galing naman sa utos niya."

Duterte on Tuesday gave a blanket denial to all of Lascañas' earlier claims.

“They are all lies. Why should I respond to lies?” Duterte told reporters in an ambush interview in Malacañang.

Lascañas, a retired Davao policeman, claimed that the DDS carried out killings on orders of Duterte, who served as mayor of Davao City for more than two decades.
