The Philippine government says it will not cooperate with an investigation by the International Criminal Court into its so-called “war on drugs”.

The ICC approved an inquiry into alleged crimes against humanity in President Rodrigo Duterte’s campaign on Wednesday.

The Hague-based tribunal said there was “reasonable basis” to proceed, noting that “specific legal element of the crime against humanity of murder” has been met in the crackdown that left thousands dead.

Al Jazeera’s Jamela Alindogan reports from Manila, the Philippines.

    The International Criminal Court is an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal that sits in The Hague, Netherlands. The ICC is the first and only permanent international court with jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression. It is intended to complement existing national judicial systems and it may therefore exercise its jurisdiction only when national courts are unwilling or unable to prosecute criminals.
