Twitter is abuzz with fierce reaction to President Duterte’s decision to withdraw the country’s membership from the International Criminal Court amid a probe into his bloody drug war.

Some netizens thought the President’s action was a cowardly move while others believed it was an abuse of power to avoid culpability.

“A very coward act from the President itself,” @ericctorres tweeted.

@xian_hunt commented: “Saan niya ba dinadala ang bansa natin? Next step is na mawawala ang Philippines sa UN… Alam ng President na may makikita ang ICC kung maiimbestigan ang mga EJKs. Autocratic moves.”

“Yung akala mo matapang ka pero last minute tatakbo din pala palayo.. Naduwag na naman?” @jhanna412 tweeted.
