Without directly referring to the Philippines, United Nations special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions Dr. Agnes Callamard said the war on drugs does not work.
The general assembly of the world’s governments recognized explicitly that the ‘war on drugs’ – be it community-based, national or global – does not work.READ ALSO: Furious Netizen Blast Agnes Callamard: You Look More Like A Saboteur
Badly thought out, ill-conceived drug policies not only fail to address substantively drug dependency, drug-related criminality and the drug trade.
They add more problems, as has been well documented around the world, including by United Nations bodies and the special rapporteur.
Let me be clear. In countries where the perverse consequences of ill-thought out drug policies were reported, in none of these countries did the drug problem disappear. In fact, the opposite happened.
On that note, social media blogger and an avid supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, Krizette Laureta-Chu, slammed the UN rapporteur, says Callamard knew nothing and has no background on drugs.
Kindly read Chu's statement on this issue that was posted on her Facebook account.
Agnes Callamard, who has no firsthand experience in fighting a drug war in a country like the Philippines, and who has zero experience in government, says this from her ivory tower, "War on drugs does not work."
If she had the answer to how it should be done properly, then why doesn't she tell the world?
Agnes, a quick view of your work experience says your work background is on HUMAN RIGHTS, never drugs, pharmacology, chemistry, psychology. You have no BACKGROUND on drugs. Kapal mong makapag sabi ng drugs do not cause brain damage and drug war does not work, bruha ka.
YOU KNOW NOTHING, AGNES. Hilahin kita sa mga drug den. Tignan natin kung masabi mo pa rin yan after 24 hours.
You're just like LP, you know, MARU. Nagmamarunong.
