THE UNITED NATION HUMAN RIGHTS BODY has dismissed claims by EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT that it should take action over extra-judicial killings in the Philippines.
Speaking to our correspondents on Saturday morning, UN Secretary General ANTONIO GUTERRES said that the UN HUMAN RIGHTS body has done a survey in the Philippines and the killings are for the good of the Filipinos, and the Drug War is not violating human rights but promoting and protecting the rights of the people.
"HUMAN RIGHTS BODY has done an investigation on the extrajudicial killings in the Philippines.
I want to announce it here that the war against drugs in the Philippines under President Rodrigo Duterte is for the good of the people, of the Philippines and it is indeed promoting patriotism and good governance.said MR.GUTERRES.
On thursday the EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT issued a joint resolution to call for support from EU member-nations in the establishment of a probe at the UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL into the " unlawful killings and other violations " in the Philippines. it is said that there is an alarming rate of deaths.linked to President Duterte's war against illegal drugs and done by Philippine Law Enforcement sectors and vigilantes.
But UN Secretary General Dismissed the calls saying: Philippines leaders should not allow EU interfere with Philippines judicial sytem.
EU is known for grabbing lands they do not own, trading, slavery, abusing human rights.
and now, they will still insist with their imperialistic and evil mindset to redefined them under the pretext of human rights, they do not even question or hear the other side of the story? UN will not go that way. Let Duterte do his work peacefully. Guterres remarked.
This is the First time UN is defending President Rodrigo Duterte Since Guterres assumed the office in January 2017. This has shocked many with others claiming the New UN Secretary General may be supporting the war on Drugs in the Philippines.
