Amnesty International has asked the UN for an independent investigation into thousands of Filipinos murdered on the sidelines of President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs.
Rodrigo Duterte became president of the Philippines in 2016. Since he has been in power, the head of state has promised to eradicate the drug traffic, killing thousands of suspected drug traffickers and drug addicts. Violent in these words, R. Duterte claimed that the fish from Manila Bay will be fattened with their corpses.
Amnesty International claims that these deaths are often Filipinos poor listed on "drug watch lists". Their identities are provided by local authorities who are subject to "immense pressures". "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.", writesNGO in comments reported by Le Figaro.

Believing it impossible to determine the exact number of victims, Amnesty says that Manila has a policy of "deliberate misinformation". According to the government, 5,300 people have been murdered by the police, but human rights defenders say the number needs to be increased by 4. TheNGO denounces in particular a "systematic character of the violations"according to Nicholas Bequelin, director in the East Asia region.
The media seem to be ignoring this massacre and no investigation is being made. "This has the effect of creating a climate of total impunity in the country, in which the police and others are free to kill without any repercussions", criticizes the report. Amnesty judge that "crimes committed may be crimes against humanity".
