President Rodrigo Duterte promised to face the problems related to alleged cases of extra judicial killings in the country.

However, according to the chief executive, this does not mean that the government will stop its anti-illegal drugs campaign.

“Dito sa drugs…patawarin na po na ako ninyo talagang…hindi ako pwedeng mawalaan ng momentum dito. We will, I will address the problems of extrajudicial killing. It is not our job. Maniwala kayo. Even before the elections. Please look back in the hands of time and you would notice that marami ng nagpatay-patayan,” said Duterte.

(As for drugs…forgive me I cannot lose the momentum on this. We will, I will address the problems of extra judicial killing. It is not our job. Believe me. Even before the elections. Please look back in the hands of time, and you would notice that many pretend to be dead.)

The government’s anti-drug war has earned negative reactions from human rights groups because of the increasing number of victims of extra judicial killings in the country.

Based on the PNP’s records, over 1,700 drug personalities have been killed in legitimate police operations. — UNTV News and Rescue
