According to different news media outlets, both local and foreign, more than two dozen countries formally called on Thursday (Jul 4) for a United Nations probe into thousands of killings in PRRD’s war on drugs, activists said. [Link here]
This news report re UN probe of killings in PRRD’s war on drugs has been met with raise eyebrows by the DDS and even by retired broadcaster Jay Sonza.
In a Facebook post, Sonza couldn’t help but ask the UN functionaries why the Philippines is being singled out when the casualties as a result of war on drugs in other countries are far worse compared to the Philippines.
Sonza, for example, cited Mexico, whose reported deaths related to war on drugs in the past couple years is more than 200,000. Meanwhile, the USA has reported 70,200 drug-related cases in one year alone.
Perhaps out of frustration, Sonza alleged the UN is turning the heat on the Duterte’s war on drugs because PRRD is shaking the international and world illegal drugs and political communities.
Sonza remarked the success of Duterte’s war on drugs is alarming to the international and world illegal drugs and political communities because it could serve as a template for other countries to follow.
Sonza also hinted some corrupt UN officials are in cahoots with the illegal drug smugglers.
Sonza recalled the stories of diplomatic pouch, UN planes, choppers and trucks being used to transport cocaine and other illegal drugs from Latin American and Southeast Asian countries.

UN functionaries want an investigation on Philippines’ war on drugs.
Why single out this country?
Mexico has 200,000 drug related death in the past couple of years.
USA reported 70,200 drug related cases in one year alone (2017).
Then there is Columbia, Panama, El Salvador, Afghanistan, Cambodia, and the list goes on.
So why the Philippines, with 6,000 death toll, hundred thousand arrest, and millions surrendered in 3 years?
Illegal drugs is about half a trillion ($000.000.000.000.00) dollar business a year !!!
Its influence is tremendous on politicians, law enforcers, judicial officers, media and business empires.
The mark success of the Philippines’ war on drugs is shaking the international and world illegal drugs and political communities.
If, in the ultimate analysis, we as a country and people succeed in putting a decent brake and ultimately stop illegal drug trade in this part of the world, a template is established. “IT CAN BE DONE.”
The illegal drug business is wary. They need to find ways to stop our war on drugs.
They will do anything and everything to prevent this from happening. Buy everybody – politicians, judges, prosecutors, media, law enforcers, and yes, even diplomats.
Do you remember the stories of diplomatic pouch, UN planes, choppers and trucks being used to transport cocaine and other illegal drugs from Latin American and Southeast Asian countries?
The Philippines’ war on drugs poses a clear and present danger to this multi-billion dollar business!
THIS IS WHY WE ARE BEING SINGLED OUT!
