Sen. Francis Pangilinan on UN experts' call for independent probe on human rights violations in PH

We appreciate the efforts of UN experts for taking notice, for trying to hold state forces accountable for the killing of tens of thousands of Filipino citizens, and for valuing the loss of fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters in a deadly manufactured drug war that has killed only the poor and the powerless but has seen the promotion and re-appointment of Customs officials who allowed the smuggling of tons of illegal drugs worth billions of pesos.

We hope that the international community's attention will help slow down if not stop the swaggering impunity among those who have abused their power with these killings, including restoring death penalty and criminalizing offenders as young as 9 or 12 years old.
