LOOK | 73% ng mga Pilipino naniniwala sa Extrajuducial Killing sa bansa..ayon sa ginawang pagsusuri.

On Monday, the Pulse Asia released its latest poll survey about the existence of extra judicial killings (EJKs) in the Duterte administration’s campaign against illegal drugs. Majority of Filipinos believe that EJKs actually exist in the current administration. 

73 percent of Filipinos believe that EJKs exist in the implementation of the war on drugs. The conducted survey took place from September 24 to 30 with 1,200 respondents. Compared to the June poll, the result is 6 percentage points higher. 

67 percent of Filipinos in Mindanao said they suspect EJKs are occurring, up by 17 points. Meanwhile the National Capital Region got 78 percent with 11 point uptick. Only the Visayas Region had single digit increase in the survey. In the previous survey, Visayas got 72 percent compared to the 75 percent in the September poll. 

On the other hand, 20 percent of the 1,200 respondents believe that EJKs does not exist in the country. On the same survey, 88 percent of Filipinos support the war on drugs while 2 percent oppose the campaign. The remaining 9 percent said they may or may not support the campaign. 

During the actual pool and survey, among the drug-related headlines were filing of murder charges against policemen allegedly involved in the killings of Karl Angelo Arnaiz and Reynaldo de Guzman. 

The poll also coincided with the canceled re-assignment of Chief Inspector Jovie Espenida to Iloilo City and the death of alleged narco-politician and Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, who allegedly had a shootout with policemen serving an arrest warrant against him.

President Duterte and Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald de Rosa stresses out that killing drug suspects were not included in its national policy. 

The Philippine National Police recently said from its report that there has been no case of EJK under the current administration so far.

 National Capital Region Police Office head Director Oscar Albayalde echoed the statement, saying the deaths are "bungled" police operations, non-state-sponsored murders, and people taking advantage of the campaign.

Commission on Human Rights (CHR), the Catholic Church, and the opposition lawmakers has expressed its concern over the alleged EJKs during police anti-illegal drug operations. The CHR contradicted the PNP’s claim. 

The CHR said that there have been thousands killed amid the war on drugs and they are no longer surprised on the report of the PNP. 

Opposition lawmakers and several organizations have formed a coalition dubbed #TindigPilipinas to protest alleged human rights violations, particularly EJKs under the current administration.
Meanwhile, The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Phillipines has urged the Filipinos to join the month long prayer for EJK victims.
