Lawyers: EJK admission can be evidence vs. Duterte

BY INTERAKSYON: A number of legal experts are claiming that President Rodrigo Duterte’s recent statements calling the series of extrajudicial killings in the country his “only sin” is evidence that can be used against him.

Former Bayan Muna Party-list representative and human rights lawyer Neri Colmenares said on Twitter that even though Duterte said that there was “no evidence” against him, the statement alone could submitted as evidence in the complaint filed against him at the International Criminal Court.
Colmenares is one of the lawyers representing the families of the alleged EJK victims who filed the complaint in August 2018.
