DESPITE the recent spate of killings in the region, the Cordillera Human Rights Alliance has yet to receive complaints from relatives of the victims.
CHRA secretary general Imelda Tabiando said their office has yet to receive a complaint about the recent spate of killings adding there will be no investigations.
However, Tabiando said the CHRA does not condone any killings and asked to uphold the rule of law at all time.
“Dapat dadaan sa due process,” added Tabiano.
The CHR believes no extrajudicial killings must ensue and instead give suspects due process.
Tabiando said violations of human rights might be found in the recent reported killings in Baguio City and La Trinidad involving alleged drug related apprehensions and deaths.
Ifugao representative Teddy Brawner Baguilat earlier called for an investigation for the killings of alleged drug suspects since the change of administration in June 30.
“The Constitution mandates that no one should be deprived of life without due process of law, and that all accused are presumed innocent,” Baguilat said.
The alderman added the spate of extrajudicial killings of suspected drug criminals by people expected to uphold the law hints at disrespect for the Constitution and the deterioration of the rule of law.
“If we don’t stop it or look into its causes, soon enough, people will take the law into their own hands, leading to anarchy and the disintegration of society,” added Baguilat.
At least two other suspected drug related kills have ensued in La Trinidad over the weekend.
