Philippines faces call for UN investigation into war on drugs killings

END KILLINGS. Groups call for justice for those killed in President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs. File photo by Maria Tan/Rappler

via channelnewsasia.com – More than two dozen countries formally called on Thursday (Jul 4) for a United Nations investigation into thousands of killings in Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs, activists said.

Iceland submitted the draft resolution backed by mainly European states, they said. The text urges the government to prevent extrajudicial executions and marks the first time that the Human Rights Council is being asked to address the crisis.

The Duterte government has insisted the more than 5,000 suspected drug dealers killed by police in anti-narcotics operations all put up a fight.

But activists say that at least 27,000 have been killed since Duterte was elected in 2016 on a platform of crushing crime and that Myka, a three-year-old shot during a police raid last weekend, is among the latest victims.
