Malacañang downplayed allegations that the police killed 50 percent more people between April and July 2020 than they did in the previous four-month period.

The Human Rights Watch, in a September 8 report, claimed that the Duterte administration’s war on drugs worsened even the country implemented lockdown measures to curb the coronavirus.

“Wala po akong reaksiyon diyan dahil hindi ako sigurado kung anong methodology ang ginawa nila. Hindi ko naman po pupuwedeng tanggapin ang conclusion ng hindi ko nakikita iyong pag-aaral, hindi ko po nakikita kung ano iyong hakbang na ginawa nila para magkaroon ng conclusion,” according to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.

Roque stressed that not everything the human rights groups say is gospel truth.

“Pero alalahanin po natin ang Human Rights Watch, ganiyan talaga ang trabaho ng mga human rights groups, mag-ingay para iyong mga gobyerno eh pakinggan sila. Pero hindi naman ibig sabihin na lahat ng sinasabi nila ay gospel truth,” he said.
