A staunch detractor of President Duterte, Senator Leila De Lima said she would organize a resolution urging on the Senate to study, with the help of the law, the rising death of criminals that happened, particularly after the May 2016 elections up to Duterte’s formal assumption to the Presidency.
At the House of Representatives, Liberal Party member Ifugao lone district Rep. Teddy Baguilat, has filed House Resolution (HR) No. 61, titled “A House Resolution calling for an investigation in aid of legislation into the spate of extrajudicial killings and/or summary executions of suspected violators of laws on illegal drugs and other suspected criminals.”

De Lima and Baguilat filed their respective resolutions amidst President Duterte’s warning to lawmakers against opposing his anti-criminality and corruption agenda.

In spite of Duterte administration’s clear all-out attacks against illegal drugs syndicates and corruption, the former Justice secretary is worried it could spawn violence within communities.

“It’s very laudable – talaga naman. But it should not be at the expense of human rights, at the expense of due process,” De Lima said to the press.

 “(Magiging) killing fields tayo, and the islands would breed of violence. Maybe, at this time, we might think it’s okay. Criminals and syndicates of course, would be scared seeing the determination of the administration. But if that becomes a pattern, summary killings – whether or not the suspect fought back, or tried to seize a gun – we’re looking at a really messy society because violence breeds violence,” explained De Lima.

  1. we are already living in a violent community where crime rate is continously towering.. corruption, rape, drug pushers/users/cartel, murder, which the past administration failed to solve... did you help in any way for the human rights of the victims of these crimes? we're they given the justice they deserve? yet offer protection to the the evil-doers? Nakakainit ka po ng dugo. we will not let these crimes soar high even further. finally someone has the guts in stopping this now, so be it, magtanggal tayo ng mantsa.

  2. De Lima should be the one investigated for her and the LP's involvement with criminals, druglords, and their protectors and their hands on the illegal drug trade in the country.
