Al Hussein countered Duterte's remarks against the UN and human rights.


Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte was criticized by the United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Human Rights for refusing investigations and opposing human rights.

During the 33rd session of the Human Rights Council on Tuesday, High Commissioner Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein opposed Duterte's earlier statements about the UN and human rights violations allegedly committed due to his war on drugs.

"The President of the Philippines's statements of scorn for international human rights law display a lack of understand of our human rights institutions and the principles which keep societies safe," he said.

"The people of the Philippines have a right to judicial institutions that are impartial, and operate under due process guarantees; and they have a right to a police force that serves justice. I strongly encourage the Filipinos to extend an invitation to the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary, or arbitrary executions," he added.

Ever since the criticisms of UN against Duterte's administration on their war on drugs, the president has repeatedly lambasted the UN, telling them to shut up as they can't even solve the Middle East carnage. He also spoke out against his detractors, saying that he is now the President of the Philippines not just a mayor. Duterte also made a joke on pulling the Philippines out of the UN when the latter criticized him for the rising death toll from his administration's war on drugs.
