US Criticize the Philippines on human rights and extra-judicial killings

The US government report indicate the faults of the Philippine government for not being able to address or eliminate the extra-judicial killings and improve human rights safeguards.

The US State Department’s global annual human rights stated:

“The (Philippine) government continued to investigate and prosecute only a limited number of reported human rights abuses, and concerns about impunity persisted. The most significant human rights problems continued to be extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances undertaken by security forces."

The report also said “Philippine has a dysfunctional criminal justice system notable for poor cooperation between police and investigators, few prosecutions, and lengthy procedural delays,” along with “widespread official corruption and abuse of power.”
