[In the news] Lacson wants Senator-elect Bato to look into plight of drug war victims -INQUIRER.net

Sen. Panfilo Lacson said he wants Senator-elect Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa to look into the issues of the drug war victims as he will offer the chairmanship of Senate committee on public order to the incoming senator.

“So ako naman nag-offer sa kanya [Dela Rosa], hawakan mo yung public order… e ang talagang purpose ko para lumawak ang perspective niya.. Makita mo naman yung plight na yung mga umiiyak na kamag-anak na napatay ng [Oplan] Tokhang,” Lacson, who currently chairs the committee on public order, said over AM radio station DWIZ on Saturday.

Dela Rosa, who was the former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, led the “Oplan Tokhang” anti-drug program of the Duterte administration.

Latest figures from Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and PNP showed that a total of 5,176 drug suspects were killed since President Rodrigo Duterte launched the bloody drug war in July 2016.
