    Most Filipinos support admin’s anti-drug war despite awareness of EJKs — Pulse Asia

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

    PULSE ASIA SURVEY

    MANILA, Philippines — Eight in every 10 Filipinos interviewed by the Pulse Asia survey nationwide support the anti-drug war of the Duterte administration. Two percent is unsupportive while the remaining percentage is indecisive. The survey was taken from September 24 to 30 2017.

    However, though many support the anti-drug war, 73% from all areas and classes believe in extrajudicial killings (EJKs) while the campaign is being implemented.

    This percentage increased from the 67% in June 2017.

    Many Filipinos are also aware of the case of Kian delos Santos, the 17-year old boy who was killed in a questionable anti-illegal drug operation by some members of the Northern Police District on August 16.

    Seventy-six percent also expressed concern about the possibility that the case of Kian might happen to them or their families because of the anti-drug war.

    The Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa admitted that there are those who were killed in the anti-drug war but these are not EJKs.

    “Critics keep on labeling the casualties as EJKs to the public. EJK, EJK so that is what the people think. Those who die in the drug, we don’t deny that. However [it becomes different because] we don’t share the same meaning when we say EJK,” said Dela Rosa.

    President Duterte has been saying he is unfazed by ratings and will continue working to deliver what he promised to the Filipinos.

    “Now, the ratings, though I would get zero, I don’t care. I will still work because that is what I promised. If I die or be imprisoned because of that, I’m sorry. What matters is that I’m satisfied after fulfilling what I promised for the Philippines, that is my personal satisfaction,” said the president.  — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue

    Manila, Philippines – The niece of LRT passenger, Ofelia Juanilio,  was a victim of theft.

    “She was about to get money for the fare when her wallet was taken. The security just said they would track where the suspect was headed to,” Juanilio said.

    Ofelia did not anticipate that someone would attempt to steal inside the well-guarded station of the Light Rail Transit (LRT).

    She recalled that passengers of the train gave her niece money to buy a ticket to be able to get out of the MRT station.

    This is the reason why Juanilio is glad after learning that policemen will soon be guarding the LRT Line 2.

    This, after the management of the LRT and the Philippine National Police (PNP) signed an agreement to intensify the security at all stations of LRT.

    “At least, it’s a preemptive move against all criminality that would occur in the station,” LRTA Adminstrator Reynaldo Berroya said.

    “To the commuters and the general public we ask for your continued cooperation with the police. We enjoin you to be constantly alert and vigilant,” said PNP Chief PDG Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa.

    The PNP will set up Police Assistance Desk so police could inform the passengers about various crime prevention measures.

    Authorities will also provide Women’s Assistance Desk in selected LRT stations where women who experience abuse inside the train or station could report their complaint.

    The PNP will also lead the conduct of a quarterly emergency drill quarterly emergency drill for all employees and passengers of LRT line 2.

    Passengers could also expect more cops at all stations to increase police visibility.

    All policemen in uniform are free to ride in all LRT Line 2 stations.

    The PNP hopes that the Metro Rail Transit and LRT Line one will also follow suit. – Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue
