De Lima Influences ICC to Bring Du30 Down before Bongbong Marcos becomes VP

ICC

Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos said it before that the destabilizers of the Du30 administration would only stop to attack the President when he becomes Vice President. Those who are anti-Du30 just can’t stand him as his successor. This pronouncement resurfaces after Presidential spokesman Atty. Harry Roque urges the ICC to not allow it as the venue for political destabilization efforts. Jailed Senator Leila de Lima calls on it to start its preliminary investigations on EJKs.

ICC is Not a Court of First Recourse

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque refutes Senator Leila de Lima’s claims that the government is unable to probe alleged extrajudicial killings (EJKs).  “The point is, the ICC is never a court of first recourse. People with complaints against extralegal killings must file before the Philippine courts,” Roque, who also a human rights lawyer stressed.




De Lima’s No-Brainer or No-Brain Call?

De Lima, in a strongly urges the ICC to start preliminary investigations on alleged extra killings in the country. She accuses the President of adopting a policy killing Filipinos suspected of drug use and peddling. “It’s a no-brainer. How can the ICC expect the Du30 Administration to take jurisdiction over the prosecution of EJK crimes? The President already admits that it is the very policy of his administration to kill Filipinos,” De Lima added.







Presidential Speech that Triggers De Lima

The detained senator refers to the President’s speech in Pampanga on December 7. Du30 reiterates on his drug war policy. Saying that it remains “until the dying days of his presidency or his life.” “We do not enjoy killing our own kind. It is not a good policy, but we are besieged.  That is something that is very terrible,” Duterte said of his drug war. “Four million is four million addicts, 42 percent of the total barangay are contaminated with shabu,” the President lamented on its extremity.

Cannot Step in if there’s No Case in Local Court

The Philippines is a party to the Rome Statute of the ICC. Under the statute, the state is given the primary jurisdiction to try cases. The ICC only steps in when the concerned state fails to prosecute an international crime such as genocide or other crimes against humanity. Roque, however, insists that there is no unwillingness on the side of the government to probe the killings, citing cases in the Supreme Court. De Limas’s actions are allegedly part of his party’s aim to dethrone Du30 for their Liberal bet to take over before Bongbong Marcos proves that her party cheated during the 2016 elections. The recount for Marcos’ electoral protest against Robredo starts in February 2018.

President Du30: Robredo – Bongbong Marcos Supporters to Pray for Succession

succession




welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The president is annoyed to the Liberal Party that pushes Leni Robredo to assume the presidency due to his alleged deteriorating health. It is not a secret he prefers Bongbong Marcos as successor. He then added to leave the succession through prayers. If he dies earlier, Robredo wins. If not, then Bongbong Marcos has the chance.

[VIDEO]: Naniniwala si Pres. Duterte na gusto lang marinig ni Sen. Leila De Lima na patay na siya.



Pathetic de Lima

The President is annoyed at unsympathetic speculations about his disappearance from the public’s eyes for few days recently. Hee could not stop himself to take a dig at a Liberal Party fighter like Senator Leila de Lima who’s in captivity due to his tremendous annoyance.




Denial?

Du30 may not be incapacitated, but, as he says, he is confined to bed. Still, his reappearance in apparently fair capacity doesn’t make the issue irrelevant. The issue has been relevant since he admitted he was sick and under serious treatment – with, among other drugs, fentanyl, a potent opioid; he even intimated doubts about living through his term; said one LP media.










Marcos Succession

As Du30 refuses to reveal his precise state of health in a public medical report, he is compared to the late Ferdinand Marcos. The deceased strongman concealed his illness under martial law. He idolizes both Marcos and his martial law because of the good they have done to the country. This is why he prefers the namesake in the direct line of succession.

Constitutional Worry

It may be constitutional to address the concern of the people about the real status of the president’s health. However, it is human to understand that even Superman needs rest. Let alone a 72-year-old man who has gone through a lot of stress lately. It is now very obvious that the yellow faction twists the purpose of laws. They are meant to serve the people and not go against them especially when that person is the leader of the country. That is what democracy is all about. Give him the benefit of the doubt.

Pimentel: The EU has no Rights to Manage Internal Affairs – Must Stop Calls to Release De Lima

Pimentel





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Senate President Aquilino Pimentel or KokoPimentel slams the European Parliament’s call for the immediate release of Senator Leila de Lima. This sounds like an order and not as a mere sentiment. De Lima is in prison for her alleged involvement in the drug trade in the national penitentiary during her time as justice secretary.

[VIDEO]: Pimentel hits EU Parliament call for De Lima’s release.



Crossing the Line

The EU Parliament has clearly crossed the line, Pimentel said. He explains that Parliaments are free to air their sentiments on many issues – but they should not interfere in internal affairs. Demanding the reversal of certain legal rulings taken by the court of sovereign nations is trying to show off that the country is under their command which is not the case.




Slamming the EU

He pleads; Please mind your own business and don’t ever tell the Philippine Senate on who should chair any of its committees.” Aside from De Lima’s previous ouster as Senate justice committee chair, the European Parliament which is the EU’s lawmaking body also condemns “the rising number of extrajudicial killings” in the drug war without the right data.

Sotto’s Support

Right after the Senate president told European lawmakers to step back, Senate majority leader Vicente Sotto III supports Pimentel’s plea and reminds the EU that it has no jurisdiction meddling in the country’s affairs. Sotto reiterates that the Philippines is a democratic nation with fully functioning laws and government.




Next in Line to the VP Succession

Pimentel as per the Philippine constitution is second in line to Vice President Leni Robredo. Her possible impeachment complaint about the UN video she sent making allegations against the Du30 administration is to be filed in May. This is on the grounds of betrayal of public trust as the second highest official of the land announcing unfounded claims critical of the President’s campaigns.

Matobato’s Resorting to ICC Seems Like De Lima’s Idea against PDu30

Matobato





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The self-confessed former Davao Death Squad member Edgar Matobato is filing a case against the President before the International Criminal Court (ICC) by March, according to his lawyer, Jude Sabio. The case has to be filed in the Netherlands for the alleged crimes against humanity over extrajudicial killings blamed to the President. When it comes to international courts, Senator Leila De Lima who is now in prison on drug-related charges easily comes to mind. This is her forte.

[VIDEO]: Matobato, magsasampa ng kaso laban kay Duterte sa International Criminal Court. Panoorin ang detalye.



Systematic and Widespread Crime Against Humanity?

Over 7,000 deaths are linked to the drug war. Legitimate police operations and or unexplained killings are included in this count, based on the Philippine National Police data. Sabio said that he will file a case regarding crimes against humanity connected to extrajudicial killings. Crimes against humanity are serious violations committed as part of a large-scale attack against the civilian population.




Long Overdue?

Sabio said that the said case is already long overdue because Amnesty International’s report is already released as well as the one from Human Crime Watch.  Davao policeman Arturo Lascañas also joins in who previously lied under oath that DDS is nonexistent then said the opposite on the 2nd testimony.

Impeachment

The lawyer knows very well that they cannot impeach PDu30 over past crimes before he becomes president. This is why the connivance with the human rights groups is concentrated on the alleged extra-judicial killings that resulted from the ongoing war against drugs by the administration. The trails of the process just have De Lima’s influence in them. The same strategy used by the Liberal Party against the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos.




PDu30 Remains Popular

Despite the character assassination that portrays the president as psychopath, murderer, and dictator, his supporters are still intact. They are too tired of the yellow regime’s mismanagement and want a genuine change. Since the late Ninoy Aquino’s clan failed the Filipinos in their two terms in office, perhaps, it’s about time to pass the torch to his arch-rival’s family through the future presidency of Bongbong Marcos with the support of PDu30?

Palace Panic on DDS Probe Results to Senator Leila De Lima’s Arrest?

Leila De Lima





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Senator Leila De Lima once said that Malacañang is in a “panic mode” that it call some senators after the majority voted to proceed with the Senate probe on the President’s alleged links to the so-called Davao Death Squad or DDS. That happens at the beginning of the week. Before the weekends, De Lima becomes the allegedly first political prisoner under the present administration, said Jose Manuel “Chel” Diokno. He is a human rights lawyer who chairs the Free Legal Assistance Group or FLAG. DOJ Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II denies this. He confirms that there’s probable cause for the illegal drugs crime committed by De Lima that involves drug lords at the Bilibid prison while she was DOJ Secretary.






Youtube video by; DUTERTE LATEST VIDEOS
[VIDEO]: The Senate voted on Tuesday to give retired Senior Police Officer 3 Arturo Lascañas, the leader of the so-called Davao Death Squad (DDS), another chance to appear at the investigating body probing the extrajudicial killings.



Panic Mode

De Lima expresses her belief that there are efforts to stop the probe on confessed DDS leader retired SPO3 Arturo Lascañas’ allegations that the President paid the group to kill criminals when he was mayor of Davao City. The detained senator said that they are in a panic mode. She added that they are shocked that there the senators, who they expected to vote against the hearing on Lascañas, abstained instead.




Leila De Lima is the First Political Detainee of the President?

Diokno speaks to reporters shortly after a judge of the Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court issues the arrest warrant on Senator Leila De Lima for allegedly orchestrating the drug trade at the New Bilibid Prison when she was in Aguirre’s position. Upon hearing that De Lima describe herself as the first political detainee of the administration, Chel Diokno congratulated her, as her case would emphasize how the current dispensation had been disrespecting people’s rights. This calls for legal arguments because it depends on who the media interviews.

Diokno’s Revenge to a Marcos Loyalist

Diokno is one of de Lima’s lawyers. He had filed on her behalf a writ of habeas data to test the presidential immunity of the President. This is over his sexual harassment and threats against the lady senator. Diokno is the son of the late nationalist and democracy icon, Sen. Jose “Ka Pepe” Diokno.” He was among the opposition leaders detained by the late president Ferdinand Marcos when he declared martial law in September 1972.




Who else is Going to Prison?

If the Palace panic results to the arrest of a political detainee, then who else is next? Should the president be affected still with the Davao Death squad accusations when it even made him win as president? Perhaps it’s time to dig deeper on where PDu30 is coming from. Perhaps it is necessary to think, act, and talk like a criminal to find the real culprits.
