Last quote by Phelim Kine

This most recent incident, and other similar incidents, puts to mind the fact that the Indonesian government and powerful elements inside and outside the government are implacably opposed to any sort of accountability for hundreds of thousands of deaths. It appears that the Joko government is making a political calculation that advocating for accountability for 1965-66 opens a potentially damaging Pandora's box that does not benefit powerful players in Indonesia. Time has basically run out.feedback

We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Phelim Kine is associated, including Duterte, ASEAN, and killing. Most recently, Phelim Kine has been quoted saying: “The apparent willingness of Philippine police to deliberately target children for execution marks an appalling new level of depravity in this so-called drug war. These killings demonstrate that Duterte's rejection of the rule of law has made all Filipinos potential 'drug-war' victims, no matter how young.” in the article The death of a Philippine teen was supposed to be a turning point for Duterte. But kids keep getting killed.

Phelim Kine quotes

May 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

Trump should recognize that he has cut a bad deal for the people of both the United States and the Philippines if he rolls out the red carpet for a Duterte visit without carefully weighing the implications of hosting and toasting a foreign leader whose links to possible crimes against humanity for instigating and inciting extrajudicial killings has already prompted warnings from the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court.feedback

May 01 2017

Countries with close bilateral ties to the Philippines, particularly the United States, have an obligation to urge accountability for the victims of Duterte's abusive drug war, rather than offer to roll out the red carpet for official state visits with its mastermind.feedback

Apr 27 2017 - Human Rights

The ratbag of dictators, autocrats and juntas that dominate ASEAN's ranks perceive transparency, accountability and rule of law as existential threats rather than foundations of good governance. Expect ASEAN leaders to yet again throw the human rights of an Asian country under the bus by remaining silent about Duterte's abusive drug war by implicitly or explicitly invoking the organization's 'non-interference' principle.feedback

Jan 31 2017

Suspending police anti-drug operations could reduce the killings, but they won't stop without a meaningful investigation into the 7,000 deaths already reported. The Philippine police won't seriously investigate themselves, so the UN should take the lead in conducting an investigation.feedback

Jan 30 2017

His wilful blind-eye to those deaths constitutes a disgraceful betrayal of the public trust.feedback

Dec 07 2016 - Sex

The government had a pretty good track record of fighting HIV-AIDS, but basically they are fighting the last war. They are still focusing on female sex workers and their clients when actually the epidemic has changed, but the government's approach is not changing and it needs to or else this will really get out of control.feedback

Sep 07 2016 - ASEAN

For most ASEAN leaders, Duterte represents a throwback to an uglier and more brutal form of Asian state, which taints ASEAN efforts to market itself as an increasingly progressive, modernizing trade block with a focus on trade data, rather than daily police-killing body counts.feedback

Sep 07 2016 - ASEAN

That dynamic means that Duterte can expect his most meaningful face-time in Laos with other ASEAN embarrassments such as Cambodia's dictator Hun Sen, representatives of Thailand's military junta and his authoritarian Laotian hosts.feedback

Aug 24 2016

Duterte is steamrolling the rule of law and its advocates both at home and abroad.feedback

Dec 25 2009

This is an extremely harsh verdict and we are surprised and shocked that the Chinese government has chosen to punish Liu Xiaobo so severely, considering he is completely innocent of these charges of subversion.feedback
