PCO Secretary’s Statement on EU’s resolution in relation to the war against drugs in PH

Extra-judicial killing is not a policy of this administration.

We will never condone any unlawful killings. The call of the European Parliament to launch an immediate investigation is already being addressed as President Rody Duterte has already instructed authorities to look into these incidents and bring the perpetrators to justice.

As to the specific, comprehensive policies and programs in compliance with human rights, plans for the construction of drug rehabilitation centers are now underway. The President has also directed the military to allot some of their idle lands for these centers as part of the second phase of the anti-drug war, which is the rehabilitation of drug dependents. At least four will be built this year, two in Luzon and one in the Visayas, and one in Mindanao.
