WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY IF ICC PURSUES PROBE VS PRRD DRUG WAR

Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said the International Criminal Court (ICC) will waste its time and money if it pursues an investigation against President Rodrigo Duterte, after a prosecutor of the tribunal found “reasonable basis” for alleged crimes against humanity in the Philippine war on drugs.

Roque said the Philippines has quit the ICC and does not recognize its jurisdiction.

The Philippines in March 2019 quit the ICC, though the world’s only permanent war crimes tribunal pledged to pursue its examination of alleged illegal killings in Duterte’s drug war.
