Hindi bababa 122 na mga bata ang namatay sa government’s war on drugs

Base sa report ng UN Human Rights Council, World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) at Philippine-based Children’s Legal Rights and Development Center ay nakadokumentado ang 122 na bata edad 1 hanggang 17 sa pagitan ng Hulyo 2016 hanggang Disyembre 2019.


Ang mga non-government ay natatakot sa nababahala sa totoong bilang ng mga pinatay na kabataan.

Base sa Report “This number is a minimum: with parents and relatives often too afraid of reprisals to report or testify, it is likely that the actual figures are higher,”

Sinabi nila na ang mga bata ay direktang target, kung minsan sila pa ang ginawang proxy kapag hindi natatagpuan ang mismong target, missing identity at minsan ay napapatay sa police operasyon dahil sa mga ligaw na bala.

Sa ulat ng anim na kaso kasama ng pitong taong gulang na batang lalaki pinatay dahil nasaksihan nito ang pagpatay sa ibang tao.

Ayon kay Gerald Staberock, OMCT secretary general ang wake-up call na ito ay para sa international community dahil nawawala na uman o ang karapatang pantao. “These revelations must be a wake-up call for the international community, who has been largely absent as the Philippine government has kept trampling human rights,” “Over the past four years, we have hardly seen any meaningful reaction to the wanton killing of thousands of people under the pretext of the ‘war on drugs,’ targeting of the poorest and most marginalized citizens of the Philippines, and the persecution of human rights defenders, many of whom are in prison for their legitimate work. It is the total lack of accountability that feeds the cycle of violence, including the war on children we are witnessing,”dagdag pa nito

Sinabi ng OMCT at CLRDC sa ulat na ang mga bata ay talagang target sa operasyon ng pulisya.

Sinabi ng dalawang NGO’s na Malayo sa pagiging 'collateral damage', tulad ng sinabi ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte, madalas sinasadya ang pagpatay," At sa kanilang pagsisiyasat ay 38.5% ang isinagawa ng mga pulis bilang bahagi ng operasyon ng pulisya habang 61.5% ang pinatay sa mga hindi nakikilang indibidual, madalas na naka-mask o nakasuot ng mga assailant at ang ilan sa kanila ay may direktang koneksiyon sa pulisya,"

“Far from being only ‘collateral damage,’ as callously stated by President Rodrigo Duterte, these have been often deliberate killings,”

“Our investigations show that 38.5% were carried out by policemen as [part] of police operations, while 61.5% were executed by unknown individuals, often masked or hooded assailants, some of them with direct links to the police,”

Nu’ng 2019 Sen. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa, ang dating country’s top cop ay tinggal ang pagkamatay ng isang sanggol sa isang drug bust na may isang expletive at collateral damage.
