MANILA — Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Atty. Salvador Panelo said that the complaint filed before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherlands against President Rodrigo Duterte is just a black propaganda.
The complaint was filed by the camp of self-confessed hitman Edgar Matobato. According to Panelo, the complaint will not move forward in the ICC because it is baseless since there is no state-sponsored or extrajudicial killings in the country.
Aside from this, Panelo does not believe it will fall under crime against humanity since there is no murder against particular class of people.
“Apparently, the intention is to black propaganda the President hoping that media worldwide would catch on it, and paint against the President a murderer when in fact, he’s only doing his constitutional duty to protect and preserve his country,” Panelo said. — UNTV News & Rescue
