“His murderous and erratic ways plus his crass, twisted and perverted statements are indicative of a deeply sick mind. Hindi ‘yan normal na pag-iisip, lalo na ng isang Filipino.”
Ito ang statement ni Senator Antonio Trillanes IV last Sunday after sinabi din ni UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein that President Rodrigo Duterte “needs to submit himself to some sort of psychiatric evaluation.”
Dagdag pa ni Trillanes, kailangan ni Duterte ng psychiatric evaluation for the public’s safety.
“For the sake of the safety and well-being of the entire Filipino nation whose lives are subjected to his power, I call on Duterte to prove that he has a sound mental health by going through a psychiatric evaluation,”
Tama kaya si Trillanes at UN Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein sa kanilang sinabi against Duterte?
In a previous report by ABS CBN, Dr. Natividad Dayan, former president of the International Council of Psychologists, in her report which was entered as evidence in the annulment case by Duterte’s former wife, Elizabeth Zimmerman, said that Duterte was suffering from “Antisocial Narcissistic Personality Disorder,” a condition characterized by “gross indifference, insensitivity and self-centeredness,” “grandiose sense of self-entitlement and manipulative behaviors” and “pervasive tendency to demean, humiliate others and violate their rights and feelings.”
Parts of the Dayan’s report used by Zimmerman in her petition for declaration of nullity of marriage in 1998 before the Regional Trial Court of Pasig City read:
“A highly impulsive individual who has difficulty controlling his urges and emotions. He is unable to reflect on the consequences of his actions.”
“Immediate gratification of his [Duterte’s] needs and desires is always expected; any delay can upset him a great deal.”
“Such lack of self-discipline often leads him to engage in unhealthy or destructive behaviors. However, he is not apt to see his behaviors as such, and instead sees these as merely exciting and challenging.”
“As it is, he has poor capacity for objective judgment. He fails to see things in the light of facts, or at least from the point of view of most people. He interprets his actions solely from his own viewpoint, which is blemished by his personal needs, biases and prejudices.”
“For all his wrongdoings, he tends to rationalize and feel justified. Hence, he seldom feels a sense of guilt or remorse.”
During the election campaign time, we recalled Duterte making rape jokes na parang wala lang sa kanya when he said: “T***a, sayang ito. Ang napasok sa isip ko, ni-rape nila. Pinagpilahan nila. Nagalit ako kasi ni-rape. Oo, isa rin yun. Napakaganda. Dapat ang mayor muna ang mauna.”
Sa kabilang banda, umalma si Senadora Risa Hontiveros sa sinabi ni United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein na dapat magpatingin Duterte sa psychiatrist.
“However, as a mental health advocate, I do not approve of statements and opinions about a person’s state of mental health (disclosed or undisclosed) that tend to be prejudicial, especially if the said remarks were made without any psychiatric or pyschological basis,” sabi ni Hontiveros.
Ang tanong: Tama ba o mali si Duterte at UN Human Rights commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein sa kanilang panawagan agaisnt Duterte?
