Sen. Leila M. de Lima's Handwritten Note
Dispatch from Crame No. 68


The latest SWS survey showing an 11-point drop in the public satisfaction rating on the Duterte regime's war on drugs is a very significant (and relieving) development.

Ibig sabihin, dumadami na ang mga kababayan natin na namumulat sa katotohanan na mali ang pamamaraan ng Pangulong Duterte sa pagsugpo sa problema sa droga.

Summary killing of suspected drug offenders irrespective of their guilt, is absolutely wrong, hence, unacceptable. It is against the laws of men and of God.

The rising statistics of innocents also being killed by roving death squads, on the so-called 'collateral damage', makes this EJK phenomenon much more reprehensible.

Those who advocate for, encourage and effectuate this extreme solution distort people's sense of right and wrong and destroy the very moral fabric of our society. To me, they are the real enemies of the people. Let us reject and fight them.

Right, and not power, is might.

Leila de Lima
