Duterte had many faults but the elimination of drug dealing scum was not one of them.

His lead should be followed.

I've no time for drug dealers anywhere. But summary execution of suspects - with no trial? Many of whom were addicts, not dealers. Effectively, eliminating any justice system and putting it in the hands of corrupt police.

Even a kangaroo court is fairer than Duterte's death squads.

A lot of Filipinos suspect Duterte himself was a big user of cocaine and methamphetamine - judging by his behaviour.

The drug lords must now be joyously celebrating!

They can now flood the PH with cheap drugs and nobody will now dare stop them!

They now have the ICC as their protectors!

Never mind the tens of thousands whose life were either ended or ruined forever by drugs!

Bravo ICC! Job well done!

Parents in the PH whose children are ruined by drugs should be encouraged and supported by the PH government to sue those ICC judges who by extension are facilitating the spread of drugs in the PH by their illegitimate ruling favoring the drug lords.

Thousands of innocent lives were lost, so many killings and so much blood on the streets of Manila all due to this THUG actions. Drugs are still flowing and the people of the Philippines deserve JUSTICE.

Watch YouTube documentary by Vice and others about his war NOT on drugs but the people of the Philippines.

Is that the reason he has the highest approval rating in Philippine history and among other world leaders the time he was president?

Duterte could still have won by a massive landslide if he was a candidate.

The ICC judges have no clue why because they don't know the real situation yet they decided to investigate him while sparing those who invaded Iraq under a false pretense and let the killers of Saddam and Khadaffi left untouched!

These judges should be tried in PH courts for providing a big boast to the drug lords.
