GENEVA, Switzerland (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – The United Nations Human Rights Council today called Risa Hontiveros a “fake senator.” This after the Philippine lady legislator criticized the Philippine government’s claim of victory in the UN Body’s acceptance of the country’s Universal Periodic Report (UPR) on human rights.
Hontiveros called the Philippine victory “fake.”
A spokesperson for the UN Council said that when decisions or actions favor her politics and that of her allies, Hontiveros is all praise. But when they go against her, she calls its fake.
“Such is the mark of a fake politician,” the spokesperson said.
