× CHR says Duterte’s ‘killing drug lords’ criteria for next PNP chief alarming

MANILA, Philippines -- The ability to kill drug lords should not be part of the criteria used to pick the next Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) said on Tuesday.

According to CHR spokesperson Jacqueline de Guia, the pronouncements of President Rodrigo Duterte are alarming as the police force's mindset should be anchored on respecting the rule of law.
