Pres. Duterte challenges UN envoy to a debate

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Monday, December 19th, 2016

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte (L) and United Nations special rapporteur on extra judicial killings, Agnes Callamard (R).


President Rodrigo Duterte asserted that he wants to face Dr. Agnes Callamard, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extra Judicial Executions, in a debate.

This, after the U.N. special envoy said in an interview that she cannot face the Chief Executive in a public debate.

According to Dr. Callamard, this is not in accordance with the special conduct of a special rapporteur.

Instead, Callamard suggested a joint press conference in which the President may throw questions about the result of her investigations.

President Duterte earlier invited the United Nations representative to visit the Philippines to see the real situation in the country as well as the war against illegal drugs operations. — UNTV News and Rescue
