Malacañang on IPT guilty verdict vs Duterte :A 'sham', useless piece of propaganda'

It’s a sham decision.

That is the reaction of Malacañang reaction regarding President Rodrigo Duterte’s guilty finding by the International People’s Tribunal (IPT) for human rights.

The Defendants Duterte, Trump and all other Defendants are guilty of all the charges specified in the Indictment, which account for their accountability for crimes against humanity, war crimes and violations of law and legal instruments referred to in the Indictment,” IPT said in Brussels Belgium.

The final verdict would be submitted to the International Criminal Court, United Nations Human Rights Council and the European Parliament and other international organizations.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque in a press briefing said that :  “That’s a sham decision. It has no official sanction. The validity of the findings will depend on the credibility of the tribunal. I’m in this field of law, I do not  know who sat there,”

 “They appear to be a propaganda body of the international left and therefore we set it aside as being a useless piece of propaganda against the government,” he added.

It was found out that the complainants are all leftist groups, Bayanmuna, Anakbayan, Gabriela, Migrante, Kilusang Mayo Uno, Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas and Rise Up for Life and for Rights.

The IPT is a global court convened by the European Association of Lawyers for Democracy and World Human Rights, Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers, International Association of Democratic Lawyers, IBON International, and the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines.

President Duterte was charged for “gross and systematic violations of human rights,” specifically, extrajudicial killings, the martial law in Mindanao, and economic woes, among others.
