And in another post this one with an article regarding the Delos Santos autopsy report, Agnes Callamard said that the death of Kian as “execution”  is the “latest symbol of a massive, government-led, human rights crisis”

"The autopsy also demonstrates the importance of independent and timely investigations into ALL unlawful deaths in the context of the war on drugs (and other contexts), not only those that generate public outcry," she said in a social media post.

The Senate yesterday has already started with its investigation on the circumstances of his death,the Philippine National Police top brass Director General Ronald Dela Rosa vowed to probe the incident as well,  and he even asserted that the seemingly high number of deaths under the administrations anti-drug war is but ‘normal.”

Duterte has vowed justice  will be served.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has already made a pronouncement that the cops concerned in the minor’s slay will go to jail if proven guilty.

"Should the investigation point to liabilities, by one, two or all, there would be a prosecution, and they would have to go to jail if convicted. That I can assure you, there will be no luto-luto (whitewash) diyan," Duterte said  in a press conference in MalacaƱang late Monday. *

"I'm sorry, but you have to face the justice system," he added, referring to the police involved.
