YASAY TO UN RAPPORTEUR: DAPAT HUMINGI KA NG TAWAD SAMIN SA PAGSIRA MO SA IMAHE NG BANSA NAMIN
Ayon umano kay Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. dapat ay humingi ng tawad ang United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur na si Agnes Callamard dahil sa pagsira nito sa imahe ng Pilipinas dahil sa paghatol niya agad sa extrajuditail killings sa bansa.
"She has damaged the country tremendously by her statement. People had jumped into conclusions that EJKs have been perpetrated in the Philippines and that there is rampant violation, state-sponsored violation of human rights," pahayag ni Yasay.
Ayon kay Yasay, naging basehan ng America ang pahayag ni Callamard upang putulin ang pagtulong sa Pilipinas.
"The damage that she has wrought on basis of irresponsibility is so great it demands no less than an apology," dagdag ni Yasay.
"She simply decided to come over here on the basis of the invitation of the president subject to conditions if she is not amenable to this condition then she goes back to the protocol that is available under the UN," wika ng pinuno ng DFA.
"It is so hypocritical for her to say now that she’d like to come to the Philippines and investigate and preserve the confidentiality when she arrived at conclusions... based simply on media reports that were not verified," dagdag ni Yasay.
