When you are the Vice President of a country and your source of information and “facts” are foreign organizations like Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch, something definitely doesn’t add up.
By now, you must have seen Leni Robredo’s video message to a United Nations conference wherein she said that there have been more than 7,000 victims of summary executions since the administration’s war on drugs.
The Philippine National Police (PNP) has corrected Robredo’s figures, saying that there is a recorded 6,011 cases of homicide but only 1,398 are drug-related.
Robredo only stated facts in UN video, says her spokesperson.
Later, in a radio interview, she tried some damage control by saying that she never said the 7,000 executions were drug-related.
Then again, under pressure and criticism, Robredo mantained that she only based her figures from the reports of international agencies such as the Human Rights Watch and the Amnesty International.

Stop right there, Ms. Robredo. You are the second highest official of the land, and your source of data are reports from foreign agencies? Are you that inutile and so far detached from your own government that you can’t even get official data from within?
How dare you use false and misleading figures to attack your own government! Are you that desperate to take down the Duterte administration that you would sell your own country to gain international attention?
You even said that the official figures from the PNP are “inconsistent” and “confusing.” Or is it you Madam that is confusing fact from fiction, at the expense of the Filipino people and the democratically-elected government?
