Rescind your decision, ICC president tells Philippines government

PHILIPPINES government has been asked to rescind its decision of pulling out of International Criminal Court since such move would retard back efforts towards crime against humanity.

Reuters quoted the president of the International Criminal Court’s member assembly on Friday as saying he regretted an announcement by the Philippines that it intends to withdraw from the court.

O-Gon Kwon of South Korea encouraged the country to remain a member and “engage in dialogue” rather than withdrawing, which he said would hurt the court’s efforts to punish war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday announced his intention to withdraw from the court because he believed prosecutors were treating him unjustly.

There is no investigation against Duterte, though ICC prosecutors are conducting a “preliminary examination”, or review, of his government’s war on drugs, in which thousands of alleged dealers have been killed.
