rodrigo-duterte2Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte could face charges for crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court (ICC) over the spate of killings that followed his declared war on drugs, Senator Leila de Lima said. According to the Inquirer, De Lima told a media interview that her claim was not meant to threaten the president but was based on fact. Hundreds have been killed since the Duterte administration took over, and this can trigger greater international concern. Should charges be brought against Duterte at the ICC, the president would not be protected by immunity.
