ICC cannot acquire jurisdiction over me, not in a million years
President Rodrigo Duterte said in a speech on Tuesday that International Criminal Court (ICC) cannot acquire jurisdiction over him, not in a million years.
The ICC has started last month a preliminary examination into whether Duterte could be liable for a crime against humanity for the thousands of deaths connected with his war on drugs.
“The war against drugs will continue with or without the ICC, with or without the human rights, with or without the politicians, it will last until the last day of my term as President. After that, wala na akong pakialam sa inyo (I have nothing more to do with you),” the president added.
