International human rights watchdog Amnesty International (AI) must present evidence to support its report that the Duterte administration has ordered and even paid some police to kill alleged drug suspects, otherwise, such claim would remain a “rumor” or just “loose talks,” Senator Panfilo Lacson said on Wednesday.
“I don’t know kung saan nanggaling yung report o information ng Amnesty International (I don’t know where the report or information of Amnesty International came from) but you know accusing is one thing, proving is another thing,” Lacson, chairman of the Senate committee on public order and dangerous drugs, said in press briefing at the Senate.
“Of course kailangang mayroong ebidensya, unless mag presenta ng ebidensa yung Amnesty International, it will just remain what— loose talks or rumor,” he said.
(Of course, there should be evidence, unless Amnesty International presents evidence, it will remain what–loose talks or rumor.)
