Duterte scoffs at UN tribunal - "I will not answer a caucasian"

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has defiantly refused to cooperate with a UN human rights tribunal, saying that if he is ever to be put on trial over his ‘War on Drugs’, it would have to be in the Philippines.

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) adopted a resolution last Thursday to investigate alleged human rights abuses by Duterte’s government as part of Manila’s ‘War on Drugs.’ The measure was introduced to the 48-member international body by Iceland, prompting Duterte to consider severing ties with the Nordic nation.

In an interview with Philippines pastor Apollo Quiboloy on Wednesday, Duterte said that he would never recognize the UN organization’s authority.

“I will only face, be tried or face a trial in a Philippine court, presided by a Filipino judge, [and] prosecuted by a Filipino,” he said. Duterte described the human rights institution as “stupid” for expecting him to answer to a Westerner.

“I will not answer a Caucasian…You must be stupid. Who are you? I am a Filipino. We have our courts here,” he said.
