Pacquiao, Sotto agrees with Duterte: UN should not pry into Philippines' affairs

SHARE:

The two senators supports the president, repeating his thought on how the United Nations should not meddle with the Philippines' issues.

Senator Vincente Sotto III and Senator Manny Pacquiao opposed Senator Leila De Lima's proposal on seeking help from the United Nations to join the probe in the alleged extrajudicial and summary killings related to the war on drugs of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Sotto said there is no reason for the UN to intervene with Philippine affairs.

"If you're asking for my personal opinion, hindi ako supportive. Bakit makikialam ang UN sa atin? Payag ba sila na makikialam din tayo sa kanila?" he told the media on Wednesday, September 21.

Sotto, who is strongly against abortion, contraceptives and the Reproductive Health law, asserted that the UN should even explain their stand on abortion as for him, it is the 'highest form' of human rights violation.

"Eh 'di pakikialamanan ko 'yong pagtuturo nila ng abortion because to me, the highest form of human rights violation is abortion and the UN officials are supporting and recommending it," he said.

The senator also called on the international media for only reporting on the killings and not on the arrests, putting Duterte in a bad light.

"They are concentrating on drug operations of the police tapos dinadamay nila pati ang mga pinapatay ng mga gang war. Bakit natin hahayaang makialam ang UN dito?" he said.

Pacquiao also expressed his refusal, saying that foreign countries should not tell the Philippines on what to do.

"It's a very wrong move na gagawin natin. Walang pwedeng makialam dito sa atin, sa problema natin. 'Di pwede makisawsaw ang ibang bansa. Pangit makialam ang ibang bansa," he said.
