Gary Alejano anticipating further steps of ICC on drug war deaths

0 37

Gary Alejano is awaiting the next explosive development about the International Criminal Court’s probe regarding crimes against humanity of murder committed under the Duterte administration.

The former Magdalo congressman said he is “awaiting justice… for the kin of EJK victims, our constitution, and our people.”

He got reenergized after outgoing ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda announced that she found reasonable basis to request for a full-blown investigation on Duterte’s war on drugs and the thousands of deaths believed to be state-sponsored killings.

This stemmed from an April 2017 complaint from the late abogado Jude Sabio, who once tried to withdraw the case after claiming that Alejano’s comrade, ex-Senator Sonny Trillanes, cut off financial support for him.

A similar complaint was filed by activists and families of eight victims in 2018.
