President Rodrigo Duterte blasted his critics who allegedly turn a blind eye on crimes in the country while supporting "Western experts" who have condemned his bloody drug war. The President was referring to international human rights organizations and institutions that have called him out over alleged human rights violations in carrying out his war on drugs, one of the topics he discussed in his second State of the Nation Address (SONA). This tirade comes 4 days after US lawmakers held a hearing on human rights complaints against his administration – the latest action from the international community in connection to his drug war.
