Malacanang was irked with the latest meddling of the European Parliament to the Philippines by submitting a resolution appealing to the Duterte government to end its alleged extra judicial killings on its war on drugs.

During a press briefing in Malacanang on Friday, Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque said that the EU parliament’s resolution to stop the alleged EJK in the administration’s war on drugs is deliberately interfering with our country’s affairs.

Roque is challenging the EU parliamentarians to release evidence on their accusations.

Roque insisted that the EU parliament’s criticizing the Philippine government contradicts the move of the European Union who has been providing funds for the Duterte administration’s war on drugs.

We find it unfortunate that the European parliament once again interfered with the affairs of Philippine state. I find it inconsistent that EU would condemn the war against drugs that they are partly financing.  We have no problems with the European Union.  Government under Pres. Duterte does not engage in the so-called extra judicial killings.”

Meanwhile, Roque made it clear that there are cases already filed against erring cops not just involved in the killing Kian Delos Santos, but also the other unsolved crimes being linked to illegal drugs.
