Human rights lawyer and senatorial aspirant Chel Diokno stands firm against President Duterte’s drug war, which he calls a “deliberate attack” on poor Filipinos.

He reiterated his stand on Twitter, as he said that the killings made in the name of the drug war “constitute as crimes against humanity.”

“Not just because of the number of killings but because they are a deliberate attack on a very clear segment of the civilian population here in the country,” Diokno added.

As chair of the Free Legal Assistance Group, Diokno has also helped victims of extrajudicial killings seek justice and accountability over the course of the drug war.
