Any deaths resulting from law enforcement operations are investigated and transgressors are sanctioned

A post on Facebook went viral, it is all about the amid the Right of Reply session last September 11,  the Philippines delegate reacted to criticisms leveled at his country’s track record on the war on drugs. The copy of the reply was also included on the said post. He said that “Any deaths resulting from law enforcement operations are investigated and transgressors are sanctioned.”

It was mentioned in the post that it was actually not his finding as a Special Rapporteur and that it was not the one that has been reported to her both consistently and systematically.

Truth be told, it was said there that it will go as recommended, it is basically a lie. What is more is that there is surely no confirmation to the public that all the police killings have been researched. What is left to answer? It was indicated there that a chance will be given to everyone to pursue and judge. The families around every country are also experiencing pain that is equivalent to a million wounds.

“To their heart, sense of self, to their sense of security and to their trust in public authorities. No Sir, there has been no, or so few, public investigations into the killings of their loved ones by the police. There has been no redress and remedies. Instead, there are, multiplied by thousands, big black holes of deep sadness, despair, fears and uncertainty for the future.”

"So yesterday, 11 September, during the Right of Reply session at the Human Rights Council, the Philippines delegate responded to the criticisms leveled at his country's track record on the war on drugs. See below copy of his right of reply. Amongst other things, he said "Any deaths resulting from law enforcement operations are investigated and transgressors are sanctioned." This is not my finding as Special Rapporteur. This is certainly not what has been reported to me, consistently and systematically. In fact, I will go as suggested this is simply untrue. And there is certainly no evidence available to the public that all police killings have been investigated. As for the rest of the reply? I will let you read and judge... Meanwhile, families around the countries are suffering a million wounds - to their heart, to their sense of self, to their sense of security, to their trust in public authorities. No Sir, there has been no, or so few, public investigations into the killings of their loved ones by the police. There has been no opportunities for families to seek justice and experience its compassionate hand. There has been no redress and remedies. Instead, there are, multiplied by thousands, big black holes of deep sadness, despair, fears and uncertainty for the future."
