Hontiveros to Duterte: Itigil mo na ang extrajudicial killings

Senator Risa Hontiveros was dissatisfied and not happy with the apology of President Rodrigo Duterte with the 'unintentional deaths' of innocent ones in ward on drugs. .

She said that the government should prioritize the public health on war of drugs first in a comprehensive response against the drug menace.

“President Duterte should go beyond words and rhetoric. I believe the best apology he can give the people is for the government to put a stop to the extrajudicial killings.”

Hontiveros said, saying that the best apology is to stop the extrajudicial killings.

Hontiveros also said that public health agenda must be implemented.

“Ending the killings and holding all those responsible for these atrocities must be done alongside the implementation of a public health agenda on the anti-drugs campaign,”

"Failure to do so will fuel further speculations that the government not only condones the extrajudicial killings, but also sanctions them, to the detriment of the people’s health," Hontiveros said.

The senator is one of those critics of President Duterte against the bloody killings happening in the country.
