Botched: Ruben Carranza explains why being VP will not save Duterte
ICTJ Senior Consultant Ruben Carranza stated that being elected as Vice President will not help President Rodrigo Duterte.
The abogado said that immunity attached to individuals does not bar the International Criminal Court from exercising its jurisdiction under the treaty.
Article 27(2) ICC treaty: “Irrelevance of official capacity — Immunities … which may attach to the official capacity of a person, whether under national or international law, shall not bar the Court from exercising its jurisdiction over such a person.” #ICCDuterte https://t.co/AwSZYsHMr9

Carranza also said that a provision also stated that only the President has immunity and not the VP. The abogado even volunteered to tell him that his spokesperson Harry Roque is the one who insisted that PH crimes against humanity law follows the ICC treaty strictly.
