Philippines President unfazed by ICC move

Philippines President unfazed by ICC move

"We can not just accept the data coming from the PNP, especially now that dozens of suspected drug offenders have reportedly been killed in the past months since PNP resumed its role in the government's drug war", said De Lima, a former justice secretary and Commission on Human Rights chairperson.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte encouraged state forces to commit sexually violent acts against women rebels, including shooting them in the vagina.

"Duterte's latest nasty remark openly encourages violence against women, contributes to the impunity on such, and further confirms himself as the most risky macho-fascist in the government right now", Gabriela representative Emmi de Jesus said.

'I was computing that if this drags on for four years, .it'll be very expensive because it's war.

There was no elaboration on how he came up with those figures and whether or how the government would pay for claimed kills. "We can not just take these vile remarks sitting down", she said.

"If you work really hard to crawl across the forest, you'll surely be able to shoot even just one". Duterte said, again eliciting laughter from the crowd. He then said these women would be "useless".

He said the guerrillas remain open to resuming stalled talks with the administration despite the president's "fascist" style.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) said that these recurring statements that looked to demean women - and victims of sexual violence - ran the danger of normalising misogyny while also encouraging war crimes.

"It encourages state forces to commit sexual violence during armed conflict, which is a violation of global humanitarian law", Conde wrote.

The volatile president turned up the rhetoric against the communist guerrillas after peace talks brokered by Norway collapsed previous year when he protested continuing rebel attacks on government forces.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte says he will not stop his war against illegal drugs despite an investigation by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on extrajudicial killings related to the campaign.

Before her arrest, De Lima, as chair of the Senate Justice Committee, led the Upper Chamber in investigating Duterte's alleged involvement in extrajudicial killings through the vigilante group Davao Death Squad (DDS), which the President allegedly formed while he was Davao mayor.

He lashed out at his critics and asked why the ICC was focusing on him when atrocities were occurring elsewhere. If they want to indict me and convict me, fine. I will cross-examine you'.
