SF Board resolution tungkol sa drug war ni Duterte, binatikos ng Palasyo

Kinondena ng Malacañang ang isang non-binding resolution na ipinasa ng Board of Supervisors of the City and County of San Francisco na bumabatikos sa giyera ng pamahalaan kontra ilegal na droga at sinabing malaking pakikialam ang ginawa nito sa personal na estado ng Pilipinas.

“The resolution is a toxic and unacceptable intrusion to our legal processes and an outrageous interference with our country’s sovereignty,” wika ni Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo.

“Like some US senators, the San Francicso supervisors have either developed an amnesia or have not outgrown their colonial mentality. They should be shaken from their stupor and wake up to the fact that the Philippines had long ceased to be a colony of the US and will never be a vassal to it,” dagdag pa ni Panelo.

Dinesisyonan rin ng board noong Abril 23 para kondenahin ang war on drugs ng pamahalaan at sinabing ” [it] has taken thousands of lives without due process” gayundin ang pagsuporta nito sa iba pang resolusyong ipinasa ng US House of Representatives at Senate na kontra sa aksiyon ng administrasong Duterte.

“The San Francisco Board of Supervisors urges our San Francisco representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, US Senator Kamala Harris, US Senator Feinstein, and Congress member Jackie Speier to support a congressional hearing on the consequences of US tax dollars going to the Philippine military and police and to champion cutting US military aid to the Duterte regime,” ayon pa sa resolusyon.

Bukod pa sa mga pagpaslang na naiugnay sa kampanya ng pamahalaan kontra ilegal na droga, ipinadama rin ng board ang patuloy na pagkakapiit ni Senadora Leila De Lima at ang mga kasong nakasampa laban kay Rappler CEO Maria Ressa.

“More than 16 mayors and vice mayors have been killed since President Duterte took office, and Duterte has blatantly spoken in press conferences advocating for the killing of Catholic bishops during a period when three Catholic priests were assassinated,” batay pa rin sa resolusyon.

Ayon naman sa datos ng pamahalaan, mayroon ng 5,176 drug personalities ang napaslang sa anti-narctics operations hanggang nitong Enero.

“For the San Francisco supervisors’ education, extrajudicial killings or deaths arising from drug-related killings are absolutely not state-initiated nor sponsored, proof of which is the death of scores of policemen coupled with the serious injuries to hundreds of others,” paliwanag ni Panelo.

Nilinaw din ni Panelo na ikinulong si De Lima, dahil sa mga drug-related case na kinahakarap nito, at kinasuhan si Ressa ng cyberlibel at tax evasion hindi dahil kilalang kritiko ang mga ito ng administrasyong Duterte.

“The cases of Senators De Lima, [Antonio IV] Trillanes and Miss Ressa, are being tried before our local courts, which belong to a separate and independent branch of the government,” ani Panelo.

Sa resolusyon ng San Francisco board, iginiit nitong naninirahan ang may 36,479 indibidwal sa mga Filipino communities na patuloy na sumusuporta sa kanilang pamilya na nasa Pilipinas.

“Many San Franciscans are either directly impacted or deeply concerned about the plight of those in the Philippines who are victims of the government’s drug war and martial law in Mindanao,” dagdag pa ng nasabing resolusyon.
