The long awaited senate probe on the cases of extra-judicial killing initiated by former Justice Secretary and Senator Leila De Lima have finally come.

Senator Alan Peter Cayetano have slammed Senator Leila De Lima's insistence of "extra-judicial killing" under the new administration on his opening statement.

"Are we using the term 'extra-judicial killing' to discredit the PNP and the Duterte administration?" Senator Cayetano said.

Cayetano said he hoped the commision of human rights would educate the people and the media on the idea that all deaths are "extra-judicial" when it is apparently not based on operational definition.

"There is a need for a clear-cut definition of what 'extrajudicial killing' is. The name is a mismoner since every killing, outside death penalty, is extrajudicial," he added. 

Cayetano revealed that the Aquino administration, known as allies of De Lima, have created AO 35 that clarifies and specified the term extra-judicial for operational definition. 

A.O. 35 specifically notes that unless a member of a political, environmental, agrarian or labor organization, a media practitioner, or those perceived to be members and advocates have been killed, then it is not considered by law as extra-judicial killing.

"Ibig sabihin po labor leader ka, media ka, religious leader, pinatay ka dahil sa paniniwala mo," Cayetano said emphasizing that it was specifically made by the Aquino administration.

Furthermore, he showed an exhibit showing that Senator Leila De Lima herself signed on the A.O. during her term as the Justice Secretary and she should have known herself what the term meant before probing the senate to investigate.

Cayetano also presented proof claiming that on the contrary to most belief, the death rate on the country have went down by one-third compared to previous administrations.

"Basically failure ang kanilang watch pagdating sa pagreresolve ng extra-judicial killings," the senator said pertaining to the killings during the past administration. "Bakit hindi na lang yun muna ang imbestigahan natin bago sa extra-judicial killings ngayon. O okay lang dati ngayon masama?"

  1. Ms. De Lima, I'm wondering if you are still on your right mind. How on Earth that as one of the top Official would conduct this kind of case when in fact, it is so obvious that the country is in crisis caused by the criminals under the influence of drugs and drug lords are nesting in the entire Philippines. If you would continue disrespecting of the President's programs to stop the war on drug the whole nation will be filled with criminals, rapists, and drug addicts. ..YOU KEEP ON SAYING THAT YOU ARE IN FAVOUR OF THE PROGRAM ON WAR ON DRUG BUT YOUR ACTIONS SHOW THE OPPOSITE. YOU ARE A HIGH PROFILE HYPOCRITE. THE FILIPINO PEOPLE ARE NOW YELLING AT YOU AND SCREAMING TO THE TOP OF THEIR VOICES TO CONDEMNED YOUR ACTIONS BUT YOU ARE ACTING like you don't care about the people of the Philippines as long as you could prove to yourself you are the best. But, here is the truth, YOU ARE THE BEST AMONG THE BEASTS...
