Philippine police officer jailed for killing S. Korean man

A PHILIPPINE police officer has been jailed for up to 40 years for the kidnapping and killing of a South Korean businessman during former president Rodrigo Duterte’s drug war, court documents seen by AFP today show.

Jee Ick-joo was abducted from his home north of Manila in October 2016 by a group, including narcotics officers, under the guise of a raid for illegal drugs, and later killed inside the national police headquarters in the capital.
