The biggest data-set on the number of people killed in president Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs has been recently updated: the real number of deaths is much higher than what the Philippine government has been reporting on their “Real Number PH” cards.
The study’s legal analysis also showed how Duterte’s war on drugs violated human rights.
The number of killings in Duterte’s anti-illegal drugs campaign is actually much higher than what is reported by the government.
The drug archive – a database created by Ateneo de Manila University, De la Salle University and the University of the Philippines — shows that more than 7,000 alleged drug suspects have been killed in Duterte’s three-year-old-war on drugs.
Meanwhile, the Philippine National Police has reported a lower number of 5,176 drug-related killings in the same period since 2016.
