For once, the matapobre school, the known Mocha and DDS basher in Metro Manila, Ateneo de Manila University did something useful for this country. Its “alleged” Human Rights Center in its UN Shadow Report on Summary and Extrajudicial Killings in the Philippines dated September 22, 2016 ADMITTED THAT THERE IS NO CRIME of Extrajudicial Killing (EJK) in the Philippines.
If there is no crime, there is no punishment. If there is no crime, there is no criminal to speak of. All this controversy are unsolved murder cases. Period.
Nowhere in Philippine law can anyone find the crime of extrajudicial killings. Nowhere in Philippine law can you find a clear and exact definition of what EJK is. That is why some sectors use the term “loosely” depending on their political agenda. At most, there are attempts of vague definitions in the Philippines of what EJK is. So how then can we agree that the State is sanctioning something that have not been defined yet?
So where did the term come from? EJK or extrajudicial killings is an international law term that refers to State sanctioned killings whether committed by State agents or by private individuals with acquiescence of the State. Hence, all this international uproar and the local adoption of the term by the yellow minions is plain and simple politicized unsolved murder cases in the Philippines. The jaundiced kind adopted the term for the Philippines for added dramatic and shocking effect. Pak ganern!
So what in God’s name are the Senate EJK hearings for? They are simply a De Lima, Trollanes and Drilon show to discredit the Duterte war on drugs. They simply want to paint a picture that there is a State sponsored systematic and widespread killings to annihilate a group of people, particularly drug addicts and drug pushers. And they want to point every murder or killing to Duterte.
That is precisely why, right on cue, coming from the bowels of hell, here comes incredible witness Matobato and the resurrected issue of the Davao Death Squad (DDS). The existence of the DDS has never been proven in any investigation whether local or international.
The whole EJK investigations was a well-oiled PR driven machination of the jaundiced group to destroy the Duterte administration domestically and internationally. It is a jumping board for a “disente” power grab.
Thank God, the whole circus is over. Thank you Senator Gordon for seeing the truth behind the sinister plot. And thank you to the Senators who ousted the scheming, vendetta-driven, narco politician De Lima from the chairmanship of the Justice and Human Rights Committee.
Clearly, there are indeed deaths outside police operations which are either murders or homicides and to date are not clear whether or not they are drug related or are made to appear drug related by using cardboard justice to cover up real motives. These deaths should be investigated and solved. But to immediately brand them as
EJKs is premature, irresponsible and adds further to the confusion.
Now is the time to be vigilant because yellow plotters abound who will stop at nothing to create a scandal where there is none and to accuse the commission of a crime when the crime itself does not exist. They plot. They sow intrigue. They aim to destroy.
Stop the EJK Propaganda because there is NO crime of EJK to speak of. Let’s call a spade a spade, they are plain and simple murders. 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼
