Philip­pine Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte has found him­self in news for all the wrong rea­sons as the UN hu­man rights head Zeid Ra’ad al-Hus­sein said he needed to un­dergo ‘psy­chi­atric eval­u­a­tion’. Zeid made th­ese re­marks af­ter Duterte re­port­edly threat­ened a UN en­voy. The al­le­ga­tions come as UN and other hu­man rights’ bod­ies have raised con­cerns over de­ten­tion and sus­pected killings of peo­ple by Duterte govern­ment for drugs re­lated vi­o­la­tions. This is not the first time Duterte has clashed with UN of­fi­cials. Mean­while, the Philip­pines govern­ment have railed be­hind their leader say­ing, “the world needs more Dutertes.”
