PH should demand Agnes Callamard’s removal from United Nations – Teddy Locsin
Philippine ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Teddy Locsin Jr. asserted that UN special rapporteur for extrajudicial executions Agnes Callamard’s faulty claims about President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drug merits disqualification from her post.
“Don't worry there are other more competent & responsible UN rapporteurs on human rights; many more where she came from. Not rocket science,” Locsin said.
Locsin noted that Callamard’s way of concluding about the anti-drug war before conducting any investigation discredits her as a rapporteur.
“If the PH does not demand her disqualification from any official role in a UN or ICC human rights probe, then PH is really stupid,” Locsin added.
He questioned why the reports were not aired in a proper venue like the Universal Periodic Review where a Philippine delegation is currently held.
“Palace knew and told her, why not go to the proper venue, Geneva, for May 8 human rights review of PH. She popped up. Ok now disqualified,” Locsin said.
