President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines says his country will withdraw from the International Criminal Court. We explain how that happens and what it means for the Philippines (and what it doesn't mean)


Maliwanag na TAKOT ka sa ICC kasi GUILTY ka Duterte. Your withdrawal of membership from ICC is a gesture of a coward, scared, and guilty person.

Too bad for Mister Duterte, the Fentanyl dependent president of the Philippines. The withdrawal from ICC amidst an impending investigation only points to his guilt in all the killings in his country.

I think it is not easy to leave if there is a standing investigation.

In the case of the Philippines, ICC cannot enforce its investigations to President Duterte unless the justice system in the country is non working.. ICC use to politicise by people who has political agenda specially the influential family in the Philippines lost to Presidency last election.

Duterte wants to withdraw from the ICC because his time has come to be investigated for all the helpless and poor people killed on his war on drugs. He's thinking it's a simple way to evade the issue of the murders committed by his regime.

ICC is conniving with the Philippines Liberal Party who lost in the last presidential election in destabilising the country. They want to grab the power back so they could continue stealing money from the goverment coffers. ICC is out to get President Duterte who was voted by the vast majority of the Filipinos. ICC has assigned a Filipino judge to handle the case of President Duterte. This Filipino judge has worked for a company that owes the Philippines goverment billions in tax and is being charged for tax evasion by the Duterte administration. ICC IS BEING USED BY CERTAIN GROUPS WITH AGENDA!

I urge ALL African Nations to take immediate action and utilize this process to withdraw from the ICC now, with date of withdrawal stating "Immediate Effect" (effective the date at which the withdrawal letter would be sent). Africa Must form it's own Continental Criminal Court to solve it's own national and inter-state problems. Why the ICC, which has a proven record of "persecuting" mainly leaders from Africa ???? Africa must quit ICC Now!!!
