Senator Imee Marcos said how the country’s drug laws should be enforced must be decided by Filipino leaders and not by other countries.
The Ilocos Norte politiko’s statement comes following the United Nations Human Rights Council’s (UNHRC) resolution to probe the Philippines for the thousands of killings in its drug war.
“Other countries cannot presume to know better how we should enforce our own drug laws,” Marcos said.
She also said rule of law in the Philippines is still working.
“Due process may seem slow in investigating alleged human rights violations, but the rule of law prevails and has not been set aside,” Marcos said.
