"Justice is coming" - Trillanes tells cops to testify before ICC or fall with Duterte

Justice is coming.
This words came from former senator Antonio Trillanes IV, one of the critical critics of president Duterte.

He gave some members of the Philippine National Police (PNP) who actively took part in these so-called extra-judicial killings (EJK’s) a decision to make a better choice among themselves.

Stand with the President in his administration’s policy regarding the illegal narcotics trade or stand as witness before prosecutors of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The senator gave this advice since the ICC is expected to finish its preliminary  examination of the complaint filed against President Rodrigo Duterte before the international tribunal over the drug war killing.

As per report, the ICC it found sufficient basis to proceed as only a few investigations have been conducted on the human rights issues and alleged EJKs under the Duterte administration’s brutal drug war.

It reiterated that the conduct of the preliminary examination of the crimes against humanity complaint against the President may be finished in 2020.

Pending the preliminary examination if finished, the ICC Prosecutor can decide whether or not there is a need to open an investigation against President Rodrigo Duterte and his relentless and bloody anti-drug campaign.
“To the members of the PNP who have been a part of the EJKs, you would have to make a decision on whether you would fall with Duterte on being liable for crimes against humanity, or you would partly cleanse your crime by being a witness for the ICC prosecutors,” Trillanes said

“Now, let me point out the obvious, as Duterte steps down from office in just a little over 2 years, he would not be able to protect you. In fact, even Duterte won’t be able to protect himself,” he added.
