Duterte's son denies Philippine drug smuggling claims

Duterte's son denies Philippine drug smuggling claimsPhilippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s son and son-in-law denied allegations Thursday that they belonged to a drug trafficking gang, with the explosive claims raising questions about the government’s bloody anti-narcotics crackdown. Since then, police have killed around 3,800 suspects in anti-narcotics operations, while thousands of other people have been murdered in unexplained circumstances. The allegations emerged last month when a customs broker told the Senate panel that he had heard the names of Duterte’s son and son-in-law mentioned while seeking to expedite the shipment.
