Catholic Priest Fr. Amado Picardal Says Life In Danger For Criticizing Duterte

Catholic priest goes into hiding in the Philippines fearing he will be targeted by a motorbike-riding 'death squad' after criticising President Duterte's deadly crackdown on drugs

A Roman Catholic priest who was one of the earliest critics of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's deadly crackdown on drugs has gone into hiding due to what he says were signs he's being targeted by motorcycle-riding hitmen. The Reverend Amado Picardal said he has gone into a 'more secure location' and out of the public view after workers in a Catholic monastery that he visits in central Cebu city reported seeing motorcycle-riding men watching the compound, including a pair who asked for his whereabouts. 'I couldn't go out for biking, running, walking due to security concerns,' Picardal said in an email in response to questions about his safety concerns, which he first disclosed in a personal blog.
