President Rodrigo Duterte has rubbished a Reuters particular report claiming the police planted proof at crime scenes and a few of the victims had been harmless.
“Itong mga durugista may mga armas talaga ‘yan. Maski sinong pulis at mayor tanungin mo. Meron talaga ‘yan. Hindi ‘yang sabihin mo ‘yan planted, planted, hindi ‘yan totoo. Almost all of them are really paranoids, paranoids ‘yan sila. So lumalaban talaga,” mentioned Duterte in an interview in Bohol Wednesday.
He mentioned it was unimaginable that the hundreds killed in his drug struggle weren’t concerned in the unlawful drug commerce.
“No, it will not. It cannot never be an innocent man will be killed. Wala ‘yan. Ikaw bilihan kita ng droga, babalik ako pagka gabi babalikan kita uli. Pagka umaga bili ako uli sa iyo. Pagbili ko sa tanghali, barilin na kita. Wala kang kasalanan? O, eh meron talaga,” mentioned Duterte.
Reuters, a world wire company, interviewed two senior police officers who claimed the existence of a well-organized and well-funded system of killing drug addicts and petty criminals with hit lists disguised as drug watch lists, a rewards matrix, and crime scene cleaners. One of the 2, a retired police officer, has offered particulars of this well-oiled authorities killing machine with a 26-page report, “The State-Sponsored Extrajudicial Killings in the Philippines.”
