THE HAGUE/MANILA – The International criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague has decided to go and see if there is a serious need for research going to come to extra-judicial killings in the Philippines and to excessive violence against protestors in Venezuela. The two countries have ever been affiliated with the Icc and are therefore eligible by the ICC to be assessed.

The ICC has Thursday announced that there will be an initial investigation. That is an early phase of the research. The Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte has immediately responded positively. He thinks that he is wrongly being accused of eradicating drug offenders and hopes that he is for the ICC his name can purify it.

The ICC in 2002, went to work on the toughest crimes to prosecute in places where there are locally of reasons also failed. The court can generally only work in or with countries that are connected. The court has long been under fire because of inefficiency, and the almost exclusive focus on Africa. There are only six convictions have been pronounced, while the court is already more than a billion euros has cost.
