Flag files petition against War on Drugs

Lawyers from Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG) Jose Manuel Diokno and Felix Marinas show copies of the petitions they filed before the Supreme Court seeking the declaration of government’s war on drugs as unconstitutional. FLAG lawyers believe that the campaign against illegal drugs has resulted in the rise of numbers of extrajudicial killings involving police operations on illegal drugs. They heed the judicial body of government to declare it illegal and unconstitutional since President Rodrigo Duterte had never issued any written order for the police to wage a brutal campaign on the narcotics.DANNY PATA/NPN – northboundasia.com
