Senator Risa Hontiveros is “happy” with the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution seeking a probe the alleged mass killings under President Duterte’s war on drugs.

Hontiveros pushed for greater solidarity among democratic nations after some countries who were opposed to the UN inquiry were known to have poor human rights record.

“Many of those who voted against the reso have bad human rts records & are ruled by dictatorial regimes. We need stronger solidarity among democratic forces in the intl community. Happy that the reso was approved & adopted as the will & sense of the UNHRC,” she tweeted.

The UN resolution initiated by Iceland was adopted by a vote of 18 countries in favor and 14 against, including China. A total of 15 other nations including Japan abstained from voting.
