Canadian Political Scientist Binara si Agnes Callamard

Canadian Political Scientist Binara si Agnes Callamard

One of them would be this Canadian political scientist who expressed his doubt about Callamard’s intention. Amir Assadollahi went to his Facebook account to give his perception regarding Callamard’s visit. 


The news about United Nations special rapporteur Agnes Callamard’s Philippine visit created confusion for many people. Although Callamard clarified that she is in the country for an academic conference on drug-related issues, people are still criticizing her intentions.

Presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella initially claimed that Callamard failed to inform the government about her arrival. He claimed that she did not notify the president’s office about her intentions. Callamard then immediately stated that she is rejecting the claims made by Abella as she informed the government of her visit. She also clarified that her trip was not considered as an “official visit”. She said she was not after assessing the country’s current situation.

Despite Callamard’s defense, Assadollahi insisted that she should have informed them properly about her intentions no matter what are they. The Canadian political scientist claimed that informing the Philippine government about her arrival is a part of the diplomatic protocol. 

He then went on saying Callamard’s behavior showed that she “does not fully understand diplomatic protocols and thinks she is above anything in international raltions.”
