Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte has threatened EU politicians after they criticised the country's war on drugs, and he is clearly not afraid to speak his mind.
More than 8,000 people have been killed since Mr Duterte took power in June last year and delivered on his election promise to launch a merciless campaign against crime and drugs, the Express reports.
The European Parliament issued a resolution condemning the "many extrajudicial killings" taking place in the Philippines and showing concern for the safety of Senator Leila de Lima, a fierce critic of the president.
But a furious Mr Duterte has warned the EU to stay out of his business.
He said: "You madmen, you sons of b******. Stop interfering with us. I would be happy to hang you. If it were up to me I would hang you all.”
Salvador Panelo, Philippines chief presidential legal counsel, echoed his boss.
He said: "They should mind their own business. They cannot dictate on the Philippine government on what to do with its constituent facing criminal charges.
