Local Journalist to Duterte critics:"A crime is a crime, murder or homicide, but it's not extra-judicial, unless it is a government action"

CLICK TO READ



A Facebook post of a journalist named Arnel Patawaran was circulating online. 

He slammed the Duterte critics for accusing that all the killings happened in this administration are extrajudicial killings.

Patawaran contended that any Filipino can sue the legislature on the off chance that they trusted they are blameworthy of any wrongdoing since the privilege to sue has not been renounced by the very government they are blaming for. 

Moreover, he said that if they have evidence then surely, they should give the government the due process they are asking for.

Read the full FB post of Patawaran:

Wait, why are we all so convinced it’s EJK? How long does it take to prove it’s extra-judicial killing? I’m amazed that since the start of the new administration, the wheels of Philippine justice (long accused of moving at such a glacial pace) seem to have moved at speeds so unprecedented that in two months 1,000, 2,000, up to 3,000 EJKs (the figures vary) have been reported, even by international media.

There are drug-related killings for sure, as there have always been, but, but–

–a crime is a crime, murder or homicide, but it’s not extra-judicial, unless it is a government action…

–if a tainted policeman kills to cover his tracks, that’s a criminal in action, that’s a criminal in uniform, not government doing the crime…

–if it’s self-defense (I know this is sooo subject to abuse, but a policeman, like each of us and given the stakes are high in a drug war, has every right to defend himself…That’s why we need to prove whether or not it is self-defense beyond extra-judicial opinion).

Also, the government has not suspended any of our rights to sue it on suspicion of wrongdoing or to investigate every crime we attribute to it. What has the investigation initiated by De Lima unearthed? Has there been any solid proof?

If we have enough proof, then we must give this government what we demand from it: Due process.
