ICC to probe alleged crimes in Philippines, Venezuela

THE HAGUE: The prosecutor at the International Criminal Court yesterday (ICC) launched initial probes into alleged crimes against humanity during the "war on drugs" in the Philippines and political upheaval in Venezuela. "Since 2016, I have closely followed the situations" in both the Philippines and Venezuela, prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said in a statement. In the Philippines, her office would "analyse crimes allegedly committed... since at least 1 July 2016, in the context of the 'war on drugs' campaign" launched by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. "Specifically, it has been alleged that since 1 July 2016, thousands of persons have been killed for reasons related to their alleged involvement in illegal drug use or dealing," Bensouda said.
