Sen. Ping Lacson released an official statement defending Pres. Rody Duterte after the UN Commissioner on Human Rights asked Philippine authorities to investigate the President for murder after he claimed to have killed in the past and also to examine the "appalling epidemic of extra-judicial killings" committed during his anti-drug crackdown.

Due to the popularity of the news article that spreads like wildfire in the mainstream media with numerous local and international news company reporting about the plans of the United Nations to investigate Pres. Duterte, he found an unlikely ally in the person of Sen. Ping Lacson.

Sen. Lacson lectured the UNCHR Chief by stating that, "Apparently, the UN rights chief is not familiar with the Philippine Constitution and our laws."

The enumerates the reasons why he lectured the UN Right Chief "First, our president enjoys immunity from suit during his term. Second, no matter how many times a person in our country admits having committed murder, as long as there is no other evidence to corroborate his extra judicial confession, the case cannot stand in any court of law."

Sen. Lacson even noted "That UN official can shout to high heavens to investigate the president but unfortunately for him, he can't get past that call." Sen. Ping Lacson stated.
 

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights also stated that "It's unthinkable for any for any functioning judicial system not to launch investigative and judicial proceedings when someone has openly admitted being a killer,’he said. There's no reply yet from the UN Rights Chief to the statement released by Sen. Lacson.
