Belmonte on Duterte’s war on drugs: Puro nakatsinelas lang pinapatay
Quezon City Rep. Feliciano “Sonny” Belmonte Jr. Is alarmed that no big time drug pusher or drug lord has fallen in the fast-rising body count on President Rodrigo Duterte’s bloody crackdown on illegal drugs.
In a report by Manila Bulletin, Belmonte said: “So far users na naka sandals lang and police assets ang tinatamaan.”
Belmonte, however, cheered Duterte’s disclosure of the Triad drug lords who were allegedly being coddled by retired Police general Marcelo Garbo – Pete Co, Peter Lim and Herbert Colangco.
Duterte’s war on drugs has come under fire from Sen. Leila de Lima and Ifugao Rep. Teddy Baguilat because the dozens of killings were done in summary execution style.
