Duterte deserves respect, Palace says after United Nations official's tirade

A senior Malacanang Palace official defended the inclusion of a United Nations rapporteur, a Filipino citizen, in the list of 600 alleged communist leaders and members whom the government wanted to be declared as "terrorists" by the court.

"There's a long history in the Philippines of the state security forces and pro-government militias assassinating people labelled as NPA members or supporters", he said in a statement.

Ms Tauli-Corpuz denounced the Government, calling the complaint "baseless, malicious and irresponsible".
