Teddy Locsin Jr.: ICC Case vs. Pres. Duterte is Dead Thanks to Callamard


Philippine Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Teodoro Locsin Jr., revealed on his social media account that the complaint filed with the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Pres. Duterte is "dead as a door nail."


The ICC case against Pres. Duterte was in connection with allegations of extrajudicial killings ordered or abetted by the Duterte administration in the pursuit of his war on drugs.

Ambassador Teddy Locsin posted the following on social media "Thank you, Agnes. The ICC case is dead. Trust me on this. Dead as a door nail," Locsin said in a Twitter post.

The former lawmaker did not offer an explanation for his claim but it was apparently a follow-up to his tweets criticizing Callamard. Locsin accused her of abusing her position when she visited the country to attend a conference on drug policy.


"She says to attend an academic conference but she effectively disqualified herself from any further official role investigating the drug war,” Locsin said.

Teddy Locsin added further that "She just abused her UN position and that disqualifies her from any further official role in a UN investigation," he added.

In another tweet on the official social media account of Locsin, he called the rapporteur a "conceited fool," ignorant of the drug situation in the Philippines.

Locsin noted that "I don't think she is. She is a stand-alone conceited fool and totally ignorant of the drug situation in the Philippines.

The UN ambassador Locsin said that Callamard's role as a UN rapporteur was affected when she acknowledged having informed the Philippine government about her trip.

Meanwhile, the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) said country representatives from Kenya, Paraguay and Switzerland were to serve as rapporteur for the Universal Period Review (UPR) of the human rights record of the Philippines tomorrow in Geneva, Switzerland.
