>> I welcome both developments. They can do their worst, I can do better in my performance as you work in government, period. This is a democracy.>> The Philippine president welcoming an impeachment complaint filed against him Saturday. Rodrigo Duterte is also facing a possible suit at the International Criminal Court.
His comments come after opposition lawmakers filed impeachment raps on Thursday. The first under Duterte's eight month presidency. In that time, the controversial leader has been linked to alleged extrajudicial killings of thousands of suspected drug addicts, under his ongoing anti-narcotics campaign. Police report more than 2,000 people have been killed in anti-drug police operations.
And around 4,000 gunned down by unknown vigilantes. Duterte's government has repeatedly denied involvement in any illegal killings.
