Philippines to investigate President Duterte’s claims he killed suspects | World news | The Guardian – The commission is an independent government body that prosecutes law enforcers or other officials who commit torture, extrajudicial killings or violate Filipinos’ constitutional rights. Duterte, who is waging a war on drugs that has killed thousands, said last week he helped police kill three suspected kidnappers early in the first of his several terms as mayor of the southern city. The United Nations high commissioner for human rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, said on Tuesday Duterte’s killings, by his own admission, “clearly constitute murder” and Philippine judicial authorities must launch an investigation.
