Former Interior and Local Governent Secretary Rafael Alunan responded to Senator Leila de Lima calling President Rodrigo Duterte a “murderer”.
Alunan on his Facebook page said that the narco-politicians, drug syndicates and the corrupted criminal justice system are the true murderers in this country, having killed tens of thousands through the years, long before Duterte sat as President.
“Millions have been addicted, impacting many millions more- victims of thrill killings, rape, theft, armed robbery, causing widespread fear and anxiety” he said.
He said that the problem in drugs has become a national security threat.
He said these suspects deserve to be subject to death penalty.
Alunan said that the government now is taking efforts to “protect the people and resolve the complex problem”.
He said that in order to solve the problem, one must gut it out until law and order is restored.
