The critics or the Anti-Admin will never stop until they achieve their goal which is to oust President Duterte. They have started their moves through black propagandas with the help of corporate media. While we are busy on the war of drugs issues, De Lima, and EJK, someone from the Anti Administration has sought the help of the International Criminal Court.
Destabilizing the Philippines Via ICC. With the authorization of ICC judges, the ICC prosecutor can conduct their own investigation to EJK in the Philippines. And because of this attention is given to the ICC, the US and the European country can use it to impose economic sanctions against our country. When this happens, it would be illegal for any of their companies to invest in the Philippines
Below is the full statement of the Prosecutor of the ICC.
Statement of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda concerning the situation in the Republic of the Philippines
My Office is aware of worrying reported extra-judicial killings of alleged drug dealers and users in the Philippines, which may have led to over 3,000 deaths in the past three months. I am deeply concerned about these alleged killings and the fact that public statements of high officials of the Republic of the Philippines seem to condone such killings and further seem to encourage State forces and civilians alike to continue targeting these individuals with lethal force.
Extra-judicial killings may fall under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (“ICC” or “Court”) if they are committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack against a civilian population pursuant to a State policy to commit such an attack.
The Republic of the Philippines is a State Party to the ICC and as such, the Court has jurisdiction over genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes committed on the territory or by nationals of the Philippines since 1 November 2011, the date when the Statute entered into force in the Philippines.
Let me be clear: any person in the Philippines who incites or engages in acts of mass 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.
My Office, in accordance with its mandate under the Rome Statute, will be closely following developments in the Philippines in the weeks to come and record any instance of incitement or resort to violence with a view to assessing whether a preliminary examination into the situation of the Philippines needs to be opened.
What can an ordinay Filipino citizen do to help?
Since the ICC will be closely watching the Philippines now through corporate media , the people can support the Administration by counteracting the black propagandas.
We can do it by commenting in English when defending bias news and black propaganda post against the Administration. Let us not tolerate fake news even if it is Pro admin.
Let us not pick a fight with the critics but answer only with the truth and base your point with a credible source. It is not much of an effort, and it does not guarantee that we will win, but voicing out our support will surely help. And if our voice in social media will be ignored, at least, we have shown the world that we are the majority.
In this way, even though the ICC is fed up with lies by the Anti Admins, the voice of the majority can be heard. Let us just hope that ICC will side with the majority and not to those few critics whose aim is to destabilize the current admin. Rallies and any act of activism will only worsen the issue. Let us show the world that majority of the Filipino supports the fight against criminality.
