President BongBong Marcos will not help out ICC on drug war probe investigation

President BongBong Marcos' refusal to cooperate with the International Criminal Court (ICC) on a drug war probe is a significant development in the ongoing investigation. The ICC has been investigating alleged crimes against humanity in the Philippines' drug war, which was launched by former President Rodrigo Duterte in 2016.

The ICC's investigation has been controversial in the Philippines, with some accusing the court of interfering in the country's internal affairs. However, the ICC argues that it has jurisdiction over the case because the alleged crimes occurred within the court's jurisdiction.

President Marcos' refusal to cooperate with the ICC could have several implications. First, it could lead to further strain in the Philippines' relationship with the international community, particularly with the ICC's member states. Second, it could raise questions about the Philippines' commitment to upholding human rights and the rule of law. Finally, it could lead to international pressure on the Philippines to cooperate with the ICC's investigation.

It is worth noting that the ICC's investigation is ongoing, and the court has not yet made any findings or issued any charges. However, the court's investigation is significant, as it could potentially hold accountable those responsible for alleged human rights violations committed during the drug war.
