The UN Puts Pressure On Philippines To Investigate President Duterte
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has bragged about killing criminals himself.
The UN wants the Philippines to investigate its president for murder.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein called on the Philippine judiciary to "demonstrate their commitment to upholding the rule of law."
President Rodrigo Duterte took office in June and has orchestrated a brutal crackdown on the country's drug trade. More than 6,000 people have died either at the hands of police or vigilantes.
He's also encouraged the extrajudicial killings of drug dealers and people who use drugs. And he says police officers won't be prosecuted for human rights violations.
