Duterte calls for abandoning International Criminal Court

The country signed the Rome Statute on December 28, 2000 and ratified and endorsed it in August 2011.

O-Gon added, the ICC needs the support of the worldwide community and encouraged the Philippines to remain a member of the Rome Statute.

"One thing I can add is I'm ready to fly to Manila to engage in dialogue with any authorities of the Philippines' government, and have open debate, if feasible and necessary, any time", Kwon said.

He acknowledged the active participation of the Philippines since the country ratified the agreement last 2011 and last December 2017 and again reiterated the country's support on the ICC. This was the response of the Malacañang regarding the issue.

In a recent television interview, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque Jr. said the worldwide court violated its complementarity rule, "the very fundamental basis by which we gave our consent to be part of the ICC", when it began the preliminary examination against the administration's campaign against illegal drugs.

President Rodrigo "Rody" Duterte has broken his silence by opposing divorce, mainly due to the negative impact that such move would have on the children of the couple involved, a Malacanang Palace official reported on Monday. Aside from this, he is also encouraging other state parties to also withdraw from the Rome Statute.

There was no reason to withdraw from "something which is not existing", he said, adding that he announced the withdrawal from the ICC treaty to draw the world's attention to the issue he had with the worldwide court.

Giving a speech in front of cadets graduating from the Philippine Military Academy, the Philippine president unleashed on the International Criminal Court, now investigating the deaths of almost 4,000 Filipinos who have been killed by police during the ongoing major crackdown on drugs in the country. Get out. Bastos iyan.

"It is not a document that was prepared by anybody". Itong mga ito pumunta sila Africa, pinagpapatay nila iyong mga Arabs, lahat na, dito yung massacre sa Marawi.

The President feels sorry for the children should the measure be enacted into law, Roque said. Get out. They are disrespectful. The court was created by an EU-sponsored treaty, the Rome Statute.

Duterte, however, announced Wednesday that he was withdrawing the Philippine ratification of the Rome Statute "effective immediately", citing "a concerted effort" by Bensouda and United Nations human rights officials "to paint me as a ruthless and heartless violator of human rights".
