Malacanang downplayed on Monday the statement of Vice President Leni Robredo that the government should allow the United Nations (UN) independent probe on the alleged human rights violations in the country’s war on drugs if it has nothing to hide.

The allegations of extrajudicial killings and human rights violations were employed by President Rodrigo Duterte’s ardent critics and detractors, said Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo.

“Yung basis nila on war on drugs on violation of human rights eh galing lahat sa opposition, at saka sa mga detractors ni Presidente na hindi naman napatunayan. They keep on repeating the same false narratives against this government,” according to him.

“Moreover, as I said, those issues were specifically raised during the election campaign and the electorate repudiated overwhelmingly and so this rapporteurs should realize by now that yung mga issue na niri-raise nila hindi totoo. Ang nangyayari sinisiraan lang nila ang mga bansa na binabanggit nila,” added Panelo.

The official said the probe would be useless because the UN rights experts have already drawn conclusions even before the investigation started.
