PHILIPPINES-POLITICS-CRIME-RIGHTS

Former police officer Arthur Lascanas (R) is escorted by security personnel after a press conference at the Senate in Manila on February 20, 2017. Lascanas during the press conference confessed to a litany of brutal crimes allegedly ordered by President Rodrigo Duterte when he was the mayor of the southern city of Davao. The crimes range from the murder of a Duterte opponent to the bombing of a mosque. He testified in the senate last October, but at that time denied the allegations. / AFP PHOTO / TED ALJIBE
