This report is entitled "They just kill". They kill and that's all. Because that's what it's all about in this vast archipelago of more than 100 million people. Since he came to power three years ago, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has given carte blanche to the police in the fight against drugs. As a result, according to Amnesty International, "an economy of large-scale murder" has been put in place. The numbers are impressive: 6,600 homicides attributable to the police. And this is only official statistics. Human rights defenders are advancing the figure of 20,000 victims. Not to mention more than 700,000 people thrown in jail.
Bloody arrests without a judicial warrant, fabrication of false evidence, serial rape, theft of victims' property, make-up of crime scenes … The landscape described by Amnesty to denounce the practices of the Philippine police is terrifying. The poorest families are affected. Each time the police claim to act in self-defense against drug traffickers. But the testimonies of relatives of the victims abound to dispute the police versions.
And the Philippine president assumes. Rodrigo Duterte has no state of mind; it justifies this impunity by the fight against drugs, its stated priority. And he also justifies the rapes: for him, "there will be rapes as long as there are pretty womenA few days ago, after the death of a 3-year-old child killed by police during a raid, one of the president's relatives, Senator de la Rosa, former head of the police , was content with this comment: "We do not live in a perfect world, this kind of shit can happen"The police trivialize homicides by classifying them under the label" Nanlaban. "It means" He fought. "And then, there is no further action.
Duterte feels all the more free from his movements as he is supported. Abroad, Donald Trump does not hide his support without reservation. Inside, in the Philippines, Duterte recently won the mid-term election with flying colors: voters appreciate his outspokenness and his image as a strong anti-corruption man. As a result, the president has plans: he wants to restore the death penalty and lower the penal majority from 15 to 12 years.
Amnesty is therefore calling for an international investigation. The NGO first addresses the United Nations Human Rights Council, considering that these abuses are "crimes against humanity". Several Western countries, including Iceland, have filed the same application. The United Nations should consider this request next Friday. Amnesty also calls on the ICC, the International Criminal Court, to open a full investigation. But Rodrigo Duterte does not care: he withdrew the Philippine membership of the ICC in March.
