The CHR Inquiry

The Commission on Human Rights, led by Leila de Lima, was in dilemma on how to break open the issue on a series of extra-judicial killings in Davao City which HR groups blamed to a shadowy group styling themselves as Davao Death Squad or DDS. There had been about 375 killings of these sorts as reported prompting the CHR to come to Davao and grill the well-loved mayor of Davao City Rody Duterte. The CHR also grilled the local law enforcement (Davao City Police Office and the PDEA) and the military Task Force Davao for the deaths of suspected drug pushers, petty criminals, etc.

For the lack of credible witnesses, the issue on so-called DDS is indeed a nut hard to crack as far as the CHR is concerned. The CHR is concerned about the human rights in this city saying that while the city has peace, it suffered from lack of quality. But I don’t know if this is the issue as far as the people of Davao City are concerned. When we hear about drug pushers being slaughtered, people do not seem to bother at all to discuss about human rights especially when the victims are hardened criminals or drug pushers. I can understand the people in as much as I understand the HR groups.
