Senator Richard Gordon has emphasized that President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration should not be pinned down on the notorious drug-related killings under his intensified anti-drug campaign.
"Insofar as state-sponsored killings, I don’t believe it,” he told GMA News and other reporters.This was his observation after the Senate probe on drug-related killings which he chairs was already terminated.
No, I don’t think it’s Duterte-inspired. The President is inspired to kill drugs because he really means to eradicate drugs but I don’t think he’s gonna push anybody to say and kill.He further explained that the hearings conducted under his committee proved that the “rule of law” still exists.
Wala akong nakukuhang order galing sa kanya and even from Bato na nagpapatay siya ng tao.
May rule of law sa ating bayan. It’s not perfect but you can see that the branches of government are working so even if the President talks a lot about many things… there is a rule of law.
However, he emphasized,
One death is too many especially if it is going to be perpetrated by men in uniform or vigilantes.The committee of justice and human rights is now finalizing to come out with reports listing the recommended laws of panels by Monday.
