[From the web] Duterte’s drug war is a war against human rights -PhilRights

PhilRights’ documentation of alleged EJK cases reveals that human rights violations committed against the victims of alleged EJKs, their families, and their communities are systemic, coordinated, sequential, and comprehensive.
QUEZON CITY – More than being a war on the poor, Duterte’s drug war is ‘an unrelenting war against human rights,’ the Philippine Human Rights Information Center (PhilRights) asserted.

PhilRights’ conclusion was based on its new report released today, “The Killing State: An Unrelenting War Against Human Rights in the Philippines,” a study that explores the demographics of victims of alleged extrajudicial killings (EJKs), the modalities and patterns of the killings, as well as other gross human rights violations associated with the Duterte government’s ‘war on drugs.’

According to PhilRights, there is already enough evidence to conclude that the drug war has resulted in gross and interrelated human rights violations that extended to the families and communities of those who have been killed.
