6:32 pm
findings are troubling. each of these skeletons has a story to tell the story of a war on drugs. the philippine government fought over the past 6 years. officially some 6200 people were killed by police for dealing with drugs. the true toll is nearly certainly much bigger and the expiration, oh, don't work with them. okay. and i am just so happy that it was, they were not loss. they were not lost. so 2 bullets game with that. i examining the remains of some of the people who died forensic pathologist, raquel for tune made a shocking discovery. in 7 cases out of $47.00, the death certificates were false year. they listed a natural cause of death when people had actually been shot rational. the philippines procedures for investigating death says the 60 year old have always

hopes that dr. fortuna had more light on what actually happened. when miss went ha civilian! a shouting give ah, my father! one shot again to sure she's there. he's dead eyes that darcy mealy and planted my father ah! dying ah, don't be his uh damn cache and my knee. that's a lie. if you have a gun is bite buck, that's there. isa my father killed because it's but fight, but the poor were the primary victims of the war on drugs. the international criminal court estimates that up to 30000 people more than 4 times the official number were killed on former president testers. watch many relatives now want to
6:35 pm
set the record straight. this catholic priest is doing his court to support the referent flood yano villanueva pays for the exhumations and full legal advice. he fears that the killings even with to tear to god, are far from over. in the past the weeks we have counted at least 8 or 9 killings to this very present day. my point, there's no difference between but then and to day, to make matters worse, i believe that the culture of killing has not only been ingrained, but it has also become sadly an organized enter price. so the water than drugs is a complete failure. if it has one success,
6:36 pm
it left families broken, widowed an orphan. the drugs continue. the drugs are cheaper this days. dr. fortuna convinced that the 2 toll of the war on drugs will never come to light. too many of those who lost their lives remain an identified and unclaimed. but she hopes that her discoveries will bring a semblance of justice to the family, remain behind john and also law is john mr. santos, who was covered former president audrey the daughters war on drugs. i'm at work and we have a situation sure where you have authorities who essentially falsified evidence to potentially hide guilt. can people realistically expect justice when it's so qualities themselves who are involved parish right now, i think that justice is going to be very difficult. and we talk about justice,
6:37 pm
you know, in the sense of accountability and bringing those people responsible to a card that can be really difficult. right now. number one, we have president marcos junior and the terror does daughter. sorry. the dirt as vice president, they're seen very much as continuous t candidates and continued to legislators. so we see them as continuing the policies of the deter it administration, including the war on drugs. second to that, there have been pronouncements by the philippine national police and also the law enforcement authority saying that they are very happy with how the war on drugs was carried out under the deterred administration. and they have asked president marcos junior to carry out the same policy and even intensify it. so it's going to be a very difficult environment for justice because we see a lot of impunity still happening under this government. just simple to understand why it is so easy to be able to falsify a death. in the philippines, you have to remember that the war on drugs was really categorically targeting. a
6:38 pm
lot of the poor young men are right. they live in enchanted communities. and in these communities, they would be gone down in their homes, for example, by mass vigilantes. or sometimes they would go missing. you know, what we've spoken to relatives who would to hunt for their, for their loved ones for a whole evening. and finally, find them in some morgue. now their bodies would not be released to them if they didn't sign off on a medical certificate that just said another cause of death, like a natural disease like god, pneumonia or something like this. so that was the predicament that these families faced. now what would you do if you had leg you wanted to claim your lower body of your loved one. you were scared. you didn't have money to pay for it. proper autopsy. that's. that's what introduced sign off on this paper just to be able to grieve on words. what is it been like for the relatives of these people who have been killed? i mean, i know you've met many, austin rather just demonstrated what has it been like for them to lose a member of their family? indescribable,
6:39 pm
i think would be the best way to to say that there is no words for how they would just lose their loved ones. we have met mothers who have lost to 3 sons to the drug war. and can you just imagine what that would feel like for someone to just have your sons gone down like that? like they meant nothing. so i think now more than just dis, yes, we will continue to fight for that. and human rights advocates and the families of the grieving have said that they will continue to advocate and fight for justice. but in the meantime, what they want now is the right to grieve the right for their loved ones to be remembered. and in so remembering none of us will forget the extra judicial killings and gross human rights violations under the debate administration. and which may carry out through the market the character administration now and as it does relieve there. thanks so much for coming in to the studio. thank you, barris ah,
