Atty. Mel: Public declarations to destroy a group of people is a criminal intent to commit mass killings

Binigyang diin ni FEU Institute of Law Dean Atty. Mel Sta. Maria na ang mga public statements tungkol sa pagpatay o pagsira sa isang grupo ng mga tao ay maaaring gamitin na ebidensya sa isang kaso ng crimes against humanity.

Hinuha ito ni Atty. Sta. Maria mula sa ruling ng International Criminal Tribunal kung saan na-convict ang dating Bosnian Serb Army commander na si Ratko Mladic sa mga kaso ng genocide at crimes against humanity (mass killings) dahil sa karumaldumal na Srebrenica massacre.

Ayon kay Atty. Mel, naging basehan ng korte ang palaging pagsambit ni Mladic kung paano lilipulin ang mga Muslim sa Bosnia.

Bukod pa dito, itinuro ng korte ang command at control ng Bosnian Serb Army kay Mladic.

“The chamber found that the only reasonable inference was that the accused intended to destroy the Bosnian Muslim of Srebrenica as a substantial part of the protected group of Muslims in Bosnia Herzegovina,” ayon kay Judge Alphons Orie.

Matatandaang kinasuhan si President Rodrigo Duterte sa International Criminal Court dahil sa mga pinatay ng Davao Death Squad (DDS) at mga kaso ng extrajudicial killings ngayong pangulo na siya.

Ilang ulit rin sinabi ni Duterte sa kanyang mga public engagements ang pagkunsinti niya sa pulisya na patayin ang mga drug personalities at target ng mga operasyon.

Basahin ang buong Facebook post ni Atty. Sta. Maria:

“PUBLIC DECLARATIONS TO DESTROY A GROUP OF PEOPLE IS PROOF OF CRIMINAL INTENT TO COMMIT CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY.

The International Tribunal in the Hague convicted Ratko Mladic for genocide and/ or crimes against humanity (which includes mass killing) by evidence which, among and together with others, consisted of — in the words of the tribunal — “his frequent remarks about how the country’s Muslims could “disappear”. Also in the words of the tribunal, “the only reasonable inference was that the accused intended to destroy the Bosnian Muslim of Srebrenica.”

The qualifying attributes are that they are “remarks” and that they are “frequent”. The only intent that can be inferred from such wordings in the remarks and their repetition is exactly what the words’ meaning explicitly and obviously relayed. There can be no other explanation. They are unequivocal proofs of a criminal intent to kill on a large and systematic scale.”
