Former Pres. Aquino Claims "NO EJK" Under the Duterte Administration


Former President Benigno S. Aquino III claimed on his latest media appearance that there is "NO EJK" under the administration of Pres. Rody Duterte despite the fact that for the past few months his allies from the Liberal Party have been protesting against alleged EJK in the country.


The former President explained that what had been taking place today under the admin of Pres. Duterte were murders and homicides.

PNoy was quoted as saying "If you say there is extrajudicial killing, then it means there is judicial killing. But I remember, we do not have the death penalty, so there is no judicial killing,” Aquino said in Filipino.

Aquino noted that "Therefore, there is no extrajudicial killing," the former President concluded. The former President, however, added "Clearly, there is murder, there is homicide taking place."

When asked if the killings of the suspected drug pushers and users were state-sponsored, Aquino said he had no evidence to say that. But the former President stressed that the "state has an obligation to protect all its citizens and go after all those who have committed infractions against society."

“May pinatay. May pumatay. Hanapin yung pumatay at bigyan ng kaukulang parusa,” Aquino said.
(Someone was murdered. Someone killed him. Go after the murderer and bring him to justice.)

The former President spoke to reporters on Monday at the commemoration of the 34th death anniversary of his father, Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr., whose assassination led to the Edsa People Power Revolution in 1983.
