Outrageous tells group of freedoms about Locsin’s drug war comments

Teodoro Locsin Jr.

Human Rights Watch defined the comments made by Foreign Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. on an Iceland-backed UN resolution to explore the drug war in the Philippines as outrageous and malicious.

HRW Philippine Investigator said that it demonstrates the Philippine government’s despair to frustrate accountability for its atrocious drug war.

The UN resolution encouraged the Philippine government to avoid extrajudicial executions and officially called on the Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to explore the drug war of President Rodrigo Duterte.

However, Malacañang said foreign nations should respect the sovereignty and independence of the Philippines, claiming that the Duterte administration respects human rights.
