Five years into President Rodrigo Duterte’s “war on drugs,” families of the victims are literally picking the remains of their loved ones
Duterte's critics believe the prospect of losing immunity after the end of his term makes him keen to run for vice-president
Archbishop Charles Brown, papal nuncio to the Philippines, met with some widows and orphans of victims of the government's "drug war"
The NCCP said the decision of the ICC prosecutor is “a step closer to ... bringing justice to the kith and kin of those who were killed”
The religious leaders said an investigation into the killings is “a source of hope that those responsible will be held accountable”
“If [the Duterte administration] did nothing wrong, the investigation will show," said Bishop Broderick Pabillo of Manila
Rights groups, however, warn of 'another tokenistic and cynical mirage, a puny, even if sincere, desire at real institutional reforms'
"Even if justice seems to be elusive for now, we will not lose hope that one day, someday, we will attain it"
