The NGO denounces the repressive policies of President Rodrigo Duterte, who has brought down in recent years thousands of suspected drug traffickers and drug addicts.
Officially, the Philippine government's war on drugs has killed more than 6,600 people in the past three years. But NGOs and human rights defenders say there are actually four times as many victims. In the face of this repression, Amnesty International called on the UN for an independent investigation, Monday, July 8, denouncing abuses "Systematic"perpetrated in "Impunity".
President Rodrigo Duterte came to power in 2016 on the promise to eradicate drug trafficking by killing tens of thousands of suspected drug traffickers and drug abusers. Among the victims are dozens of young children, reports the Quebec daily The Press. In her second report on the subject, Amnesty says that the victims are mainly poor Filipinos who are "drug watch lists". Their names are provided by local authorities subject to "immense pressures" from the police to deliver a steady stream of suspects. "Worse, those on the watch lists seem to be there indefinitely, with no way of being removed, even if they have followed treatment and stopped using drugs.", Denounces the NGO.
"The failure of the international community to provide a real response to these serious human rights violations (…) has encouraged the government to extend repression to independent media, human rights defenders and political activists"continues the report.
NGO calls on UN Human Rights Council to open independent investigation "to put an end to these crimes, to provide justice and reparations to countless families and victims". Iceland has proposed to the Council, which has been sitting in Geneva since 24 June, a draft resolution, supported mainly by Western countries, requesting the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to assess the crisis of the drug war in the Philippines. While the Council should vote on the text before 12 In July, Manila again asked the international community to meddle in its affairs.
