MANILA SLAMS UN WARN­ING

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

MANILA: The Philip­pines crit­i­cised yes­ter­day as “ir­re­spon­si­ble and alarm­ing” a UN en­voy’s warn­ing that life sen­tences meted out to two ex-Kh­mer Rouge lead­ers should serve as a warn­ing to Manila over hu­man rights abuses. David Sch­ef­fer, the UN sec­re­tary-gen­eral’s en­voy to the tri­bunal, said lead­ers in coun­tries such as the Philip­pines, as well as the Is­lamic State, must “take note” of the ver­dict. “His re­marks are un­jus­ti­fied and with­out ba­sis,” the Philip­pine for­eign min­istry said. – AFP
