BBM's refusal to join ICC is "regrettable" - Hontiveros

“I hope he will not undermine or block investigations of acts or violations that took place before the Philippines withdrew from the ICC,” Hontiveros said.

“Their mandate is to investigate, that is why they should not be block to their job. If they have nothing to hide, nobody should not be scared in this investigation,” she added.

Rissa acknowledges the right of the President’s decision to join or not to join an international body, but took note that as chief executive of the country is has a duty to act on “state sponsored impunity.”

“Why is there hesitation? It is the prerogative of the president, though it is regrettable as the Rome Statute is the collective commitment of the community of nations against state sponsored impunity,” she said.
