9:09 am
from bangkok thanks for being with us this morning president to territories war and drugs the extrajudicial killings of cost thousands of lives do you see president trump addressing that in manila. it's pretty clear that the president did tear to is inflicted calamity of human rights abuses on the philippines is off the table in terms of president trump's priorities and which is very disappointing but not surprising because president trump has repeatedly proven that he has an affinity for strongman rulers with well documented abuses against their citizens but the wider issue is we have these human rights abuses going on the philippines but rule of law is under attack in the philippines and rule of law fairness transparency predictability president rodrigo terra has thrown those under the bus and that has wider significance and ramifications beyond human rights its business

9:11 am
could very well constitute crimes against humanity so this budding romance between trump and do terror today and this diplomatic fist bump that trump is giving to terror today he's dealing with a likely future crimes against humanity suspect so that makes this meeting even more. awkward and odious than it already is ok what about public support to territories war on drugs that have a lot of public support initially what are your research findings showing right now in terms of public backing for the war on drugs in the philippines. look it's unquestionable that the thirty eight percent of the filipino electorate that voted did terrets a into power in may of twenty sixteen that he retains really strong support among second statement c. but we have to take a look at the numbers there you know president territories popularity ratings actually have started to decline since there has been very disturbing evidence that
9:12 am
the philippines national police have been intentionally targeting children with the extradition executions but the other issue is that you know there's a difference between popularity and legitimacy you know present a terror tape was elected to support and defend and protect the rights in the philippine constitution number one of which is the right to life he has absolutely trashed that right and this is something that has profound implications for future rule of law in the philippines that will last far longer than he is time in office phelim kind deputy director of the asia division of human rights watch thanks so much for being with us today and stay in the philippines how has more on one business sector that's propping up that country's economy that's why brian if you have to call a call center custom a seven minute face it will have to at some time chances are these days you're more likely to be talking to someone in manila than in mumbai there are more english
