Lacson says gov’t should pay for innocents killed in drug war: Di pwede sorry lang
The unintended fatalities or “collateral damage” in the government’s war on illegal drugs should at least be compensated, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Friday night.
In a tweet, Lacson said this should apply especially to the poor or “slippers” victims.
“Unintended killings or collateral damage, especially the ‘slippers’ victims of the government’s anti-drug war must at least be compensated,” he said.
On Thursday, President Rodrigo Duterte apologized for the innocent people killed in the government’s anti-drug war.
In interviews with media outlets, he admitted there were killings that were “unintended,” including children caught in the crossfire.
