The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal
Court (ICC) says any person who encourages or
condones President Digong’s war on drugs is
liable to be prosecuted before the court.
“Let me be clear: any person in the Philippines
who incites or engages in acts of violence
including by ordering, requesting, encouraging or
contributing in any other manner, to the
commission of crimes within the jurisdiction of
the ICC is potentially liable to prosecution before
the court,” ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda
said in a statement recently.
The ICC would then be prosecuting 76 percent of
Filipinos who encourage the elimination of
lowlifes in our society such as people who
commit heinous crimes or peddle illicit drugs.
76 million Filipinos out of the total
population of 100 million.
According to the latest survey of the Social
Weather Station, 76 percent of the population
approve of what President Digong is doing for the
The killing of criminals in the government’s war
on drugs (drug traffickers, drug pushers and
peddlers are considered criminals) is not within
the ambit of the ICC.
You see, the Hague-based court’s mandate is to
investigate and when warranted, try individuals
charged with genocide, war crimes and crimes
Genocide refers to the mass slaughter of people
on account of their race, religion, culture or
Peddlers of illicit drugs are not being singled out
because of race (they’re Filipinos like the rest of
us), religion (they’re Christian or Muslim like the
rest of us), culture (they have the same culture
as the rest of us) and political belief (they’re
apolitical and criminal).
The Philippines is not at war with any country;
therefore, President Digong is not committing any
war crime if he really ordered—granting but not
admitting—the killing of drug criminals.
“Humanity” refers to people in general; therefore,
Digong cannot be charged with a crime against
humanity as he is not a misanthrope or one who
It was unfair and stupid of ICC Chief Prosecutor
Fatou Bensouda to accuse Digong of committing
genocide, a war crime or crime against humanity
in his war on drugs.
Why didn’t the International Criminal Court
investigate and try then US President George W.
Bush of committing war crimes when he ordered
US troops to invade Iraq?
It was only in Bush’s imagination that Iraq was
keeping weapons of mass destruction.
Bush was eventually proven wrong when not a
single weapon of mass destruction was found in
Iraq and only after the US had already invaded
US Ambassador Philip Goldberg says that from
2012 to 2016, “USAID (United States Agency for
International Development) contributed more than
P3 billion to Mindanao and the ARMM
(Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao), with
P500 million specifically allocated for health
Because of the souring relations between the
Philippines and the United States, Goldberg’s
statement sounds like he’s, as we call it in
Goldberg is practically telling the Filipino people,
“Hey, you are so ungrateful! We give you so much
money and yet you bite the hand that feeds you.”
