Manila slams United Nations rights chief

13 March 2018

Sounding every bit as hysterical and rabid as the British assets' attacks on President Trump, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, told a news conference on March 9 that President Duterte "needs to see a psychiatrist".

Roque came to Duterte's defense after the latter, in a speech delivered in Zamboanga City on March 10, threatened United Nations special rapporteurs who will conduct an investigation into his bloody war on drugs to "throw them to the crocodiles". "I totally reject that", she said.

"Instead of attacking the messenger, states and other stakeholders should engage and address the human rights concerns raised by mandate-holders", he said in Geneva.

"This son of a b****, stupid chief of (UN Human Rights Council)., they were irked because (my advice to the police is), 'Do not answer question [s] from them".

"Relevant sides of the global community, including the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, shall respect the sovereignty of the Philippines and the will of its people", Lu said during the regular press briefing Monday. And that is for a reason (that is) legal.

"Just say, 'Duterte ordered it: destroy the organization.' So what's wrong with that?"

"So these stupid (members of the UN) will go here".

What's the difference between the use of "crude language" by a United Nations (UN) official and a head of state like Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte?

Following the inclusion of a UN special rapporteur on a terrorist watchlist released by the Philippine Supreme Court, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein called Duterte's behaviour "absolutely disgraceful" and said he needed to submit himself for "psychiatric evaluation". Are there crocodiles here that eat people?

21 court petition also said that Tauli-Corpuz is a member of the New People's Army, a communist militia which has fought a five-decade rural insurgency.

"We welcome special rapporteurs, provided they be impartial, neutral, and willing to investigate rather than those already having conclusions", Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in a press briefing on Monday.

"These attacks can not go unanswered, the UN Human Rights Council must take a position", Commissioner Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein said in a news conference on March 9, according to a Reuters report. Duterte has repeatedly lashed out at Callamard for her being biased against his anti-drug campaign.

The Palace official reiterated that Zeid's remark against Duterte is unacceptable and is an affront to the country's sovereignty.

"It (Zeid's remark) did not come at an appropriate time", he said.
