Senator Lacson lectures UN High commissioner for plans to investigate President Duterte

The call by United Nations high commissioner for human rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein to probe President Duterte over his admission he may have killed criminals while he was Davao City mayor may not get too far.

Sen. Panfilo Lacson said the President enjoys immunity from suit while he is in office, while Philippine laws also require corroborating evidence for a case to stand in court.

“Apparently, the UN rights chief is not familiar with the Philippine Constitution and our laws,” Lacson said.

Earlier reports said Zeid called for “credible and independent” investigations into the killings in Davao, following Duterte’s claim to reporters in Singapore that he killed hostage-takers when he was Davao mayor.

But Lacson noted that “no matter how many times a person in our country admits having committed murder, as long as there is no other evidence to corroborate his extra judicial confession, the case cannot stand in any court of law.”

“That UN official can shout to high heavens to investigate the president but unfortunately for him, he can’t get past that call,” he added.
