Manila, Philippines – Natupad ni Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte ang kanyang pangako na “to reduce inequalities and advance human rights” sa kabila ng kritisimo sa war against illegal drugs ng pamahalaan.

Sa pagdiriwang ng International Human Rights Day, sinabi ni Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea na si Pangulong Duterte ay “consistently introduced and implemented programs and projects to reduce inequalities and advance human rights” sa bansa.

Sa isang kalatas na nilagdaan ni Medialdea at binasa naman ni acting presidential spokesperson at Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles sinabi nito na “More than five years ago, the President made a promise that his administration will pursue social justice based on equal treatment and protection for our country’s poorest and most vulnerable, bring about improvement in our people’s welfare and standard of living, and make human rights work to uplift human dignity.”

“We all have seen those promises fulfilled even in the midst of a pandemic, which has affected us all,” dagdag na pahayag ni Medialdea.

Ayon kay Medialdea, ang mga insiyatibang ito ay kinabibilangan ng “unprecedented free tertiary education; universal access to health care; a massive-scale infrastructure development in the form of the Build, Build, Build program; social amelioration to broaden the Filipino middle class; and an aggressive campaign to contain the COVID-19 pandemic’s surge and its ill-effects on people’s health and the economy.”

“Further, the administration had given its utmost effort to curb the proliferation of illegal drugs and criminality, to put an end to the decades-long struggle against local and international terrorists, and to eliminate deeply-entrenched corruption in many government offices,” lahad pa nito.

Gayunman, ang war against illegal drugs ng administrasyon ay umani ng kaliwa’t kanang pambabatikos mula sa human rights champions dito sa Pilipinas at sa ibang bansa dahil sa di umano’y extrajudicial killings na patuloy na iniimbestigahan ng Department of Justice (DoJ). Kris Jose
