ICC Seeks to Probe Philippines' Crackdown on Drug Crime

ICC Seeks to Probe Philippines' Crackdown on Drug Crime

Monday, 14 June 2021 12:00 PM

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has sought authorization to open an investigation into the Philippine government’s deadly crackdown on drug crime.

Fatou Bensouda said Monday that a preliminary probe “determined that there is a reasonable basis to believe that the crime against humanity of murder has been committed” in the Philippines between July 1, 2016 and March 16, 2019, the date the Philippines withdrew from the court.

The suspected crimes happened “in the context of the government of Philippines ‘war on drugs’ campaign,” Bensouda said in a statement.
