United Nations Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, abstract or arbitrary executions Agnes Callamard may have three more years to monitor President Rodrigo Duterte’s battle on medicine.

This, after the UN Human Rights Council introduced the extension of Callamard’s time period in Resolution 26/12, which was adopted in direction of the top of its 35th session on Thursday (June 22).

In the decision, the Council requested Callamard “to continue to examine situations of extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions in all circumstances and for whatever reason, and to submit the findings on an annual basis, together with conclusions and recommendations.”

She tweeted a portion of the decision with the caption, “My Mandate on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary killings has been extended #Humanrights #HRC35.”

Duterte has repeatedly slammed Callamard for criticizing his battle on medicine, which she had linked to human rights abuses.

The President mentioned he’s prepared to participate in Callamard’s investigation on the battle on medicine, supplied she meets a number of situations, together with readiness to debate with him, openness to taking questions from him and taking an oath earlier than answering his queries.
