Another case of diplomatic bullying, was how Sen. Joseph Victor “JV” Ejercito on Friday known as the US congressional probe on alleged abuses of President Duterte in his struggle towards medicine.
“It smacks of hypocrisy as the US has never hesitated to violate human rights when it is to their interests,” he mentioned.
Ejercito mentioned the investigation was an affront to the nation’s sovereignty.
“The Duterte administration has already stated time and again that it respect human rights even as it is determined to solve the problem of illegal drugs that has ruined so many Filipino lives,” he mentioned.
Even Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto disagreed with clams that human rights had been being trampled on within the administration’s struggle towards medicine.
The US congressional probe was prompted by a invoice filed by two US senators searching for to limit the export of sure weapons and tools to the Philippine National Police (PNP) attributable to President Duterte’s alleged bloody anti-drug marketing campaign.
