International Criminal Court opens probe on Duterte's drug war
09 Febrero 2018, 01:28 | Bibiana Flor
International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutors have opened a preliminary examination into Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte's "war on drugs", which has led to the death of thousands since it began in July 2016.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced this in a media briefing Thursday.
State finance officials said the auction was launched Thursday, with a starting rate of 3.75 percent.
Earlier, HRW criticised the Duterte administration for failing to make "genuine efforts to seek accountability for drug war abuses".
The resource speakers are Francisco Dakila Jr., managing director for the monetary policy subsector, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas; Eduardo Francisco, president of BDO Capital and Investment Corp.; Shiela Lobien, regional director of Jones Lang LaSalle Philippines; Birgit Hansl, lead economist and private sector leader of the World Bank; Ernesto Pernia, secretary of socioeconomic planning; and Yongzheng Yang, representative to the Philippines of the International Monetary Fund.
According to Roque, Duterte said that the ICC's launching of the preliminary examination is an opportunity to prove that the case is not subject to the court's jurisdiction.
"He wants to be in court and put the prosecutor on the stand, to ask who prodded you to proceed to preliminary examination", Roque told a news conference, adding Duterte has suspected "that it is, of course, the domestic enemies of the state behind this".
He also came under intense criticism for declaring martial law on the southern island of Mindanao last year during the Islamist insurgency in Marawi City.
After a preliminary investigation, he said the prosecutor would have to go to the pre-trial chamber of the Court for confirmation of charges before the charges can even be filed in the Court.
Sabio accused Duterte of "repeatedly, unchangingly, and continuously" committing mass murder.
Roque insisted that Duterte's drug war is a "lawful" and "legitimate" operation against drug personalities. He has threatened to cancel the Philippines' ICC membership and said European lawyers were "rotten" and "stupid".
The Philippines said yesterday that the International Criminal Court (ICC) is moving to conduct a "preliminary examination" on President Rodrigo Duterte's anti-drug campaign.
"I am confident that based on my communication as well as that of Sen".
"More importantly, this is the first step for the victims' families' quest for justice", he added. During their first meeting, President Xi Jinping advised Duterte about the need to promote practical bilateral cooperation and that they must thoroughly coordinate their development strategies within the framework of the One Belt One Road (OBOR) Initiative. "It cannot be characterized as an attack against civilian populations [just] because they are civilians", he said. It seeks to complement, not replace, national courts.
Since 2016, I have closely followed the situations in the Republic of the Philippines ("the Philippines") and in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela ("Venezuela").
Under the Rome Statute, national jurisdictions have the primary responsibility to investigate and prosecute those responsible for international crimes.
