Vice President Leni Robredo was alarmed again over the continuos killings in the anti-illegal drugs operation of President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration.
She believed that some criminals and cops are using the illegal drug war of President Rodrigo Duterte go give them the license to exterminate anyone.
In a press conference in Cebu on Saturday January 14, the Vice President said that there have been reports on killings that do not seem to be connected on War on Drugs.
“Ito maraming bombahan, patayan, lahat ito kabit-kabit. Parang dahil nangyayari siya, dahil hinahanapan ng paraan, baka iyong mensahe na binibigay niya, binibigyan niya ng lisensya, binibigyan ng lisensya ang tao na mag-resort sa violence,” she said.
She also made the infamous “Tokhang For Ransom” modus as an example which some police officers were allegedly involved and using the Oplan Tokhang to kidnap people.
“Kung nababasa natin, naririnig ang mga kuwento ngayon, napakaraming lumalabas na kuwento na pinatay hindi naman konektado dito. Ang ginagawa lang na dahilan ang droga dahil dito,” she said.
She believed that the War on Drugs of President Rodrigo Duterte gave a chance to the cops to put the law in their own hands.
Leni Robredo also urged the youth to make real change by becoming the stewards of peace.
