UN Human Rights Council must launch investigation into thousands of extrajudicial executions in the Philippines

, Índice: IOR 40/0467/2019

The Philippine government’s so-called “war on drugs” has resulted in thousands of extrajudicial executions, the victims of which overwhelmingly come from poor and marginalised communities. As outlined in this briefing paper, Amnesty International urges the UN Human Rights Council to launch a formal investigation into the serious human rights violations committed in the context of the so-called “war on drugs,” given the need to address the continued serious violations, including extrajudicial executions, the total lack of justice and accountability, and the refusal of the Philippine government to engage with the international community to address the situation.
