Duterte's invitation for EU and UN, proof that Philippines has nothing to hide

SHARE:

The palace said it is the administration's proof that they have nothing to hide amid the war on drugs.

President Rodrigo Duterte invited the United Nations and the European Union to observe the series of extrajudicial killings in the Philippines and this only showed that the president is confident that his administration has nothing to hide from the international bodies.

“Though there is no formal invitation, the Duterte administration welcomes the United Nations Rapporteur on Human Rights to come over and look into the alleged human rights concerns – a clear manifestation that this administration has nothing to hide before the international community,” Presidential Communications Office chief Secretary Martin Andanar said.

During Duterte's speech at Camp Alagar in Cagayan de Oro City, he said that he ordered Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea to invite the UN and EU to come to the country and investigate him.

Given this, they have to listen to the government's side if they want to investigate the alleged extrajudicial and summary killings.

“Although the Philippine government welcomes any UN observer and will listen to what they have to say, they should also listen to what we have to say, both in the spirit of mutual respect and out of genuine recognition of our status as a sovereign nation,” Andanar said.

Andanar also explained that prolonged illegal drug trade could branch out into larger problems in the future so the war on drugs is important to prevent that from happening.

“The all-out war against illegal drugs being waged by law enforcement is a war for national survival. The drug menace has permeated the length and breadth of the country, threatening to destroy the very fabric of our society,” he said.

“We know that widespread drug use not only leads to other crimes, it can also turn the country into a narco state where lawlessness prevails and can set back our efforts at achieving inclusive economic growth,” he added.
