Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla said on Friday, Jan. 2, 2023 that any investigation violating the country’s sovereignty by the International Criminal Court (ICC) into the widespread killings of suspects during an anti-drug crackdown under former president Rodrigo Duterte would be “totally unacceptable.”Remulla spoke in reaction to a decision on Thursday, January 26, by judges in The Hague-based court allowing Prosecutor Karim Khan to resume an investigation that was suspended in late 2021 after the Duterte government said it was already looking into the killings and argued that the ICC, a court of last resort, did not have jurisdiction. The ICC decision was welcomed by human rights groups and by relatives of mostly poor suspects killed in Duterte’s police-enforced crackdown.
