Philippine president may imprison ICC investigator Fatu Bensuda

"What is your legitimacy now? Since we are not signed by the treaty, you have no right to pursue prosecutions against the Philippines," Philippine President Radurigo Dortti told a press conference in Davao, south of the country.

"Fatou, do not try to come here because I will prevent you not because you are afraid, but because you have no right to investigate here, and about me personally, not now and not a million years later," he told the ICC Prosecutor, .

The International Criminal Court announced in early February 2018, opened an "initial search" a stage before the opening of an investigation, in the campaign against drugs led by the President of the Philippines, which was the execution of thousands of people from smugglers and drug users presumed without trial.

In the meantime, the Philippine president, a former lawyer, withdrew his country from the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

The withdrawal of the Philippines from the treaty will be effective only within a year. "This does not prevent the investigation of the killings," experts and jurists say.
