Duterte fears more deaths in drug war

Duterte fears more deaths in drug war

Manila's defense department, however, has asked them to postpone their trip until after the United States presidential elections next month and after Duterte has finalized his decision to change the Philippine military's engagements with United States forces, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the delicate nature of the issue.

"I am deeply concerned about these alleged killings and the fact that high officials of the".

"Let me be clear", she wrote.

Apart from extra-judicial killings, the ICC has jurisdiction over genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes committed on the territory or by nationals of the Philippines since 1 November 2011, the date when the Statute entered into force in the Philippines.

Abella said, "Instead of Duterte's earlier "shoot-to-kill" stance, suspects will be disabled".

Andanar said the unlawful killings are "currently undergoing investigation as directed by the President".

The United Nations, the European Union, the United States and worldwide human rights groups have all raised concern over alleged extrajudicial killings.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte invited world leaders to investigate his war on drugs - but promised to humiliate them if they do.

Wu, who met Duterte's envoy and former Philippine president Fidel Ramos during a fence-mending trip in Hong Kong in August, told the South China Morning Post yesterday that Duterte's visit was meant to put bilateral ties back on track after the fallout from the Permanent Court of Arbitration's ruling in July that dismissed China's claim to most of the disputed waters.

"Drug-related killings, including vigilante killings, are not state-sanctioned".

These could then be used as opportunities to restructure loans and charge extra fees, the letter said. He added: "In 2008 the numbers [of distressed SMEs] moving into GRG rose by over 400%".


Social media catapulted Duterte to the presidency, says his communications secretary, Martin Andanar, and it remains a bastion of support in the face of what Andanar considers negative coverage by worldwide and local news media.

Local and foreign media groups have assailed the seemingly unabated killings of journalists that made the Philippines one of the world's most unsafe countries where media persons could practice their profession.

Communication Secretary Martin Andanar said the order mandates the task force to have an inventory of all cases of violence against media perpetrated by the state and non-state forces.

Despite the intense criticisms, Duterte has vowed to continue his anti-drug campaign. Be sure of it, you can cast it in whatever stone.

"I will not stop until the last pusher, until the last drug lord is taken away", he said, adding that he is risking his honor, his life and his presidency in his war against drugs.

Duterte, 71, won the hearts of millions of Filipinos with his outrageous, at times comical speeches and man-of-the-people style in the run-up to a May election.

He again admonished the USA, the United Nations and the European Union for criticizing his war on drugs, calling them "idiots".

Duterte has been at the receiving end of worldwide censure for his controversial anti-drug crackdown, in which over 3,600 people linked with narcotics have been killed by either police or unknown gunmen since June 30, when Duterte came to power.

He later apologied for his Hitler reference, but said he was "emphatic" about wanting to kill all drug addicts.

Police had previously said there had been more then 3,600 deaths, but have since concluded that many of that number were homicides and murders unrelated to illegal narcotics.
