(Eagle News) — Kind of farfetched.

This was how the spokesperson of the Philippine National Police described the allegations made by two lively and former police officers, as reported by Reuters on Wednesday.

Ang kanilang mga (supposed) allegations, medyo malayo sa katotohanan. (The killings of drug suspects are) not being ordered by the group. Di parte ng PNP ang kanilang sinasabi dun,” Senior Supt. Dionardo Carlos mentioned in an interview over GMA News TV on Thursday.

He additionally denied what Reuters reported had been allegations of a reward system in place by the PNP for many who would kill criminals.

The allegations, Reuters mentioned, had been made by one of the supposed two individuals who talked to them.

The intelligence officer, Reuters mentioned, alleged in a 26-page report titled “The State-Sponsored Extrajudicial Killings in the Philippines,” that police are paid to kill not simply drug suspects, but in addition  pickpockets, swindlers, rapists, gang members, alcoholics and different “troublemakers.”

According to Reuters, the report mentioned “reward scales” had been pegged at P20,000 for a “street level pusher and user,” P50,000 pesos for a member of the barangay, P1 million for “distributors, retailers and wholesalers,” and P5 million for “drug lords.”

That’s a violation of the regulation. There’s no such order coming from the management so hindi yan tolerated,” Carlos mentioned.

No such huge determine

Carlos additionally denied what Reuters mentioned that “almost 9,000 people, many small-time users and dealers, have been killed since (President Rodrigo) Duterte took office on June 30.”

He mentioned primarily based on PNP information, there’s no such “big” determine.


“Again, mali nanaman yan… The final report by the Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management is 1398. Hindi lahat ng nagaganap na krimen ng pagpatay, homicide ay konektado sa ilegal na droga. Ang ginagawa kasi, ang bilang na yun ay pinalalabas na konektado sa ilegal na droga, lahat yan ay abstract executions, o lahat yan ay extrajudicial killings. Hindi po. Ibig sabihin lahat po palang nangyayari na patayan previously are all EJKs and abstract executions earlier than the present administration?” he mentioned.

He mentioned primarily based on present PNP information, those that died in police operations are 2700, of which 1398 are drug-related.

The relaxation, he mentioned, are “under investigation,” and the others are “based on other motives.”

Hindi (sila) konektado sa droga ngunit pilit na binibilang sa kampanya laban sa ilegal na droga,” he mentioned.

Ongoing investigation

He mentioned both method, the PNP was already conducting an investigation into the allegations made within the Reuters story, and the 26-page report it quoted.

“I used to be speaking with the reporter of Reuters pertaining to  that (26-page) report. However, they solely wished us to touch upon the specifics. And we wished to take a look at your entire report and clearly set up ang mga sinasabi nito,” he mentioned.

He mentioned he additionally hoped that the 2 supposed lively and retired police officers interviewed by Reuters would floor to allow them to assist the PNP of their investigation.
