UN’s Zeid says Philippines’ Duterte needs psychiatric evaluation

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein called Duterte's remarks 'unacceptable'. — AFP picGENEVA, March 9 — Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte’s slurs against UN human rights activists suggest he needs to see a psychiatrist, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein told a news conference today.

“These attacks cannot go unanswered, the UN Human Rights Council must take a position,” Zeid said, after Duterte’s government sought to get a UN investigator, a former Philippine lawmaker and four former Catholic priests declared as “terrorists”.
