LUNGSOD  NG QUEZON Nanaig ang “objectivity” at “non-interference” ayon kay Philippine Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN) Ambassador Evan P. Garcia sa naging resolusyon ng UN Human Rights Council nitong Oktubre 7 na bagkus mag-imbestiga ay kumilala umano sa inisyatiba ng pamahalaan na mapag-aralan ang mga kritisismo at alegasyon laban sa anti-drugs campaign ng gobyerno.

Pinapagtibay diumano ng resolusyon ang pagkilala ng international organization sa mga kasapi nitong bansa bilang “duty bearers.”

Sa panig ng Philippine National Police (PNP), nilinaw nito na hindi selebrasyon bagkus ay oportunidad ang naging resolusyon para pagtibayin pa ang pagsunod sa rule of law ng buong kapulisan sa lahat ng aspeto ng kanilang operasyon.

“This will further strengthen the PNP’s firm commitment to uphold the rule of law, through strict adherence to the PNP Operational Procedures or Rules of Engagement that emphasize highly on respect for human rights and international humanitarian law,” pahayag ni PNP Spokesperson Police Colonel Ysmael Salonga Yu.

Malugod nitong tinatanggap ang panukalang “technical cooperation and capacity-building for the promotion and protection of human rights in the Philippines” ng Konseho.

“The PNP will do its job as intended, and perform to its best for what is right and to assure that PNP will always be there to serve and protect every Filipino family as its partners,” ayon sa Spokesperson.
